Parents Get an Advent Calendar Too!

Advent Calendar for ParentsHappy Advent !

We’re taking the four themes of advent—truth, love, joy, peace—and applying them to the family. One tid-bit per day.

Advent Wreath Inspiration

Historically, advent is celebrated with a candle-lit wreath. Every week one of the five candles is lit.

Candle 1 recognizes the prophets of old who spoke the truth even when people did not want to hear it. We'll share intriguing ways to build truthfulness in our homes.

Candle 2 points to love. Jesus came from heaven to earth out of love. Stay tuned for creative ways to express seasonal love to your kids.

Candle 3 reminds us of joy (think Christmas carol Joy to the World! )  Let’s get delight shining on our children’s faces before they open their presents…through giving of themselves in fun and entertaining ways.

Candle 4 focuses us on peace. No wonder world peace is a challenge when many of us struggle to get peace at home! Take a breather during the last days of Christmas prep with these calming tips.

Candle 5 is lit on Christmas Eve to announce the birth of Jesus Christ.

May this Advent Calendar help make your season bright!

When I first did this advent calendar two years ago, I was not able to keep up the pace of adding a post per day. No peace of mind...especially tough since I was coming to the part about peace!!

Now, I'm adding to it again, so stay tuned.
