My Kid’s Minister, Jenny Smith, has created an excellent online Family Advent Calendar. Christmas is a busy season for families, which is why I like this simple tool. The purpose is to give your family intentional times to discuss Jesus.
It’s easy to use. Just click on the star that corresponds to each date and follow the instructions. Each day includes Scripture to read together, discussion questions, an online activity, and a prayer prompt for your family. The devotional should take about fifteen minutes.
We’re using it at our church, West Bradenton, and it corresponds to my sermon series. But we welcome any family to join us! Even if you just read the verses, it’s better than doing nothing. Too many families run through December and don’t make the time to focus on Christ. This tool will help you slow down and keep Christ at the center of your home.
