Advent Season - Jotham's Journey

Did you know Advent season begins this Sunday? Did you know each color of the candles in an Advent wreath represent something different? Does your family pay attention to this part of the Christmas season?

We didn’t.

Sure, we've heard a few teachings from pastors over the years, but we've never been inspired to do anything more. This year, our pastor shared how his family of six recognizes the coming birth of Christ and celebrates the beginning of a new Church year in his own home.

We were inspired.

Come over to Grace & Truth Living and see how our family is celebrating this Advent season.

We love celebrating advent with our children each year. Unfortunately, we never get it all done but that in itself has become part of our tradition. It really helps to slow down and focus on the real meaning of the season.

How wonderful Renai! Well, I'll have to let you know how it works for us. I'm sure it will be great!

We had an advent wreath growing up. We now have a different Advent holder. I prefer the wreath but the other was a gift so our family uses that. We light the candle/candles before dinner on the Sunday. Weekends can be lazy so it ensures we sit down as a family and eat together like we do during the week.
