This little book supplies a good basis for devotions over the Advent period - and is especially aimed at families with younger children.

I added it to my devotional reading over the Advent period and quite enjoyed it. Ideal if you've never looked at an Advent-specific devotional.

This past Christmas season, my family decided to get deeper into the Christmas celebration by celebrating the Advent. I did quite a bit of research about the candle lighting but I already knew about the Advent and what is was. For those who may not be familiar, the Advent is the four weeks prior to Christmas that commemorates the coming of the King of kings into the world, Jesus the Christ.

This is a very short and simple Advent book. It's the size of a gift book with a scripture and a few questions for each day's reading. Keeps adults engaged but is short enough to not bore the kiddos.

Scott James makes a wonderful Gospel presentation in The Expected One. A twenty five day devotional leading up to Christmas Day. Every day he uses a uniquely poignant scripture directing our attention to the future coming King. There is a brief message about the scripture and then a "Review & Reflect" segment. This segment is well laid out with four points with opportunity for family or small group discussion. The first of the four points start of simple for an adolescent audience but then ...more

A wonderful work that encourages our family to share a daily study together during advent. Good questions for younger and older kids (and adults).

This is a quick little devotional that would be good with little kids and each day had one question for adults to ponder. Each day could be done in less than 5 minutes.
