As We Wait: A Family Advent Devotional
The Christmas season is one of the busiest times of the year for families. Taking time together to celebrate Advent, to focus on waiting, is a wonderful opportunity to bring you and those you love closer to God and to each other.
These twenty-nine readings, one for each day of Advent, are a deep, yet practical exploration of the traditional themes of Advent; promise, light, love and hope. But the focus is more on what isn’t said than what is; giving you an opportunity to put yourself in the shoes of these characters, seeing them as human. While the themes may be traditional, this unique devotional has practical applications and incorporates scriptures from throughout both the Old and New Testaments, including many not traditionally read at Christmas.
This devotional is designed for families with children middle school age and older, though it may still benefit readers of all ages
