Keep the Focus on Jesus this Christmas with 24 Family Devotions for Advent!

The flurry of shopping, gift giving, recitals, and parties adds a certain amount of tension to a season meant to be infused instead with awe and wonder. Ask most families what the focus of Christmas really is and they will readily answer that it is the birth of Christ, yet so many of us find ourselves overwhelmed with activities, travel plans, hosting, and more. Trying to prepare our hearts and our families to celebrate His birth becomes secondary while we try to survive the busyness!

Victoria Duerstock wants to support families in their desire to make Christ the focus of all their celebrations this Christmas. Each day of this family devotional includes not only a Scripture and short short reflection for the twenty-four days leading up to Christmas, but also inviting full-color images and simple Christmas crafts that can be done as you focus on the rich meaning of this season. Find easy-to-follow instructions for:

  • Stained Glass Ornaments
  • Cinnamon Oatmeal Soap
  • Mason Jar Luminaries
  • Homemade Marshmallows
  • Scrap Ribbon Tree Ornaments
  • And many more!
  • Each devotional through the four weeks of Advent is focused on the themes of Hope, Preparation, Joy, and Love and is meant to be read with the entire family, or by the older child who needs something just for them in this special season.

    Advent Devotions & Christmas Crafts for Families will be your new favorite holiday tradition. It makes a wonderful early Christmas gift for kids, parents, or grandparents!

    Perhaps the Christmas story has become almost too familiar. A virgin giving birth. A child laid in a manger. Shepherds greeted by angels. The Christmas story has become so familiar that the profound, even shocking, nature of the incarnation might be overlooked. But what if we had never heard the story before? What if we were hearing it for the first time, like the first-century Jews? These events certainly would not be taken for granted--they would signal something new: the dawning of the long-awaited Messiah.

    This Advent, put yourself in that ancient Jewish world. Containing an entry for each day of Advent and continuing through the Christmas season, Dr. Ted Sri will help you to discover spiritual treasures in the Gospels and gain a new understanding of the coming of Christ.

    Rejoice! Advent Meditations with Joseph is a prayer resource with daily meditations that will enrich your Advent by inviting you to experience the first Advent with Joseph and Mary, as they await the birth of their son, the Savior of the world.

    Together with the guided meditation videos, this journal calls you daily to see through Joseph’s eyes, feel what is in Joseph’s heart, and read the Scripture that Joseph read, so you can fully prepare to welcome Jesus into your heart this Christmas.

    Each day, in a few short pages, Fr. Toups provides you with aids to help guide your prayer:

      • A word - Focus on a single word each day to draw out the details, the specifics of who Joseph is.
      • A reflection - Learn more about Joseph, the culture in which he was raised, and the world in which he lived.
      • A Psalm - Each day, you’re given a Psalm to pray (just as Joseph himself would have prayed) to help you enter into prayer.
      • A reading - In reading Scripture, you'll enter into the story of the first Advent, and walk beside Joseph.
      • A prompt - Space is provided each day to journal. Record how the Lord is speaking to you this Advent.
