Christmas and Advent resources

It’s December 1st already!  I’m a little late but I wanted to share all of these wonderful resources that can be used for family devotions and worship time during the advent/Christmas season.  It’s never to late to get started!   Ironically, this time of year is when it should be the easiest to focus on Jesus yet it can actually be the hardest time to focus on what Christmas is really about.  What better way to keep our hearts focused on what all of the decorating, giving, and celebrating is about than to make time as families each day to talk about the good news that God sent His Son and to worship together in our homes.  At the end of each lesson you can pick a Christmas song and sing together with joy.  As a Christian, it’s always Christmas!

Focus on the family puts out family devotions each year and you can download it for free.  You can find this years plus the years past and pick your favorite.  Fantastic resource!
