Christmas Advent Resources for Your Family

Can you believe that Thanksgiving is THIS THURSDAY and that December starts on Sunday??  Whaaa??  I'm sure that there will be much eating, planning and shopping done over the next few day.  Many of you are probably thinking about Advent and I want to help you out a little.  Below are three ways I want to share with you as your prepare for CHRISTMAS!!!

I've written before about Truth In The Tinsel.  You can read that post here if it's new to you.  More importantly just click and go get yourself a copy for you and your kids.  No time to do all the crafty goodness?  Not a problem, get the printable ornaments and go for it.  No stress and no shame there, sister!  I have them myself!

Click here to visit Truth in the Tinsel.

Wondering about the tree and stockings and Santa and what in the world it all has to do with the Baby Jesus in a Manger anyway???  Phil Vischer has the answers with "Buck Denver asks... Why Do We Call it Christmas?". You may or may not be familiar with What's in the Bible?   I LOVE these videos and have learned so much myself.  Check them out by clicking on that cute pic.  If you look just over to the right you will find a handy dandy coupon code good through December 2.  Use it!  :)

Finally, a little something for the whole family - as if the first two aren't!  Ann Voskamp has released a book just in time for Advent that uses the Jesse Tree.  It is a journey to Christmas beginning in Genesis and following the family tree of Jesus.  There's also a special treat included with the book that you will find out about as you read the instructions.  Trust me, you'll like it.  I've included a link to that below as well.

Based on my dear friend Becky Daye's recommendation I am adding The Advent Book as well.

These should get you going on your way to getting more out of the season than torn paper and stray remnants of scotch tape stuck to the carpet.  These are also affiliate links so thanks in advance if you use them.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!!!  I am thankful for YOU!


  1. I know I sound like a broken record, but my favorite is "The Advent Book" by Jack and Kathy Stockman. It has been the sweetest thing for me to hear my kids quoting scripture by the time Christmas rolls around. Such a blessing!

    1. Thanks!! I just added it to the post! :)

    2. Aw!!! Thanks, Amy! I can't wait to start using it on December 1st!!!

  2. So sweet of you to offer suggestions for people. I hope you have a fabulous Thanksgiving!

    1. Thanks, Stacey!! I hope that your family has a wonderful Thanksgiving as well.
