Two years ago, we used Truth in the Tinsel but didn't make it to Day 25 as with traveling and doing other things for the holidays, we just didn't finish.
Last year, I had good intentions to do it again, but with Baby Boy due in the beginning of December I just never got my tush in gear.
So here we are Advent 2013, and I have high hopes for our Advent activities. We are doing two things, a Book Advent and Knowing Him by Name Advent activity from Thriving Family.
I saw this idea from a friend last year and just loved it!
Knowing Him by Name , we journey through the Advent season learning the names of Jesus.
I wrote the names of Jesus on a pack of Christmas bulbs with permanent marker. Each day I bring out the bulb, read the corresponding Bible Verse and do a short activity as we learn a new name for Jesus. And then we add the bulb to our Christmas Tree!
It is so simple, quick, and easy... and I hope my kiddos get a sense that this season is about HIM!
Do you have any Advent activities planned/ underway?
