Advent 2014


This year I have attempted to make the Christmas season slow down, and really savor the true meaning of the season.
There are so many commercial distractions that really pull us from what Christmas is all about.

Growing up, Joe never celebrated Advent, so I have always found it special that our church home here in New York takes part in the Advent celebration.
To me, Advent really breaks down the magic of the weeks leading up to Christmas and why it truly is such a special time to be celebrated.
A lot of wisdom and scripture are shared throughout these weeks.

If you have yet to experience advent, I urge you to dig into some of the resources in these last days before Christmas.

Hope, Peace, Joy and Love// Terra Nova Church
|| Our church's spin on Advent. Each sermon has a corresponding devotional to reflect on over the week prior. I'm pretty partial to this one! ||
"O Come Let Us Adore Him"// She Reads Truth

|| A beautiful online Advent devotional series geared towards women. Easy to digest and makes it easy to come back for more each day. ||
Advent Series: Podcast Sermons// The Village Church
|| If you're more of a auditory learner, you can play one of these sermons and multitask at the same time. ||
Applicable Advent for the Whole Family// Awana Advent 2014
|| A daily Advent devotional that has different applications for families, couples, individual, early elementary, late elementary and Jr. and Sr. High School ||
Downloadable Advent Devotional// Desiring God
|| Desiring God is the curriculum we use for our Children's program at church and I love the truth that is brought out in each story. These are applicable devotions that can be shared with you family.  ||
DIY Advent// Oh My Deer
|| These are the verses I used to create our Advent calendar this year. A great compilation of some very important verses. ||

Take the time to be silent and reflect in the true meaning of Christmas. 
Don't let Jesus, though expected, go overlooked with your family this year.
Are you celebrating Advent this year?
