'Tis the Season to Be Purposeful

If you are like me, you appreciate well compiled, organized, easy to follow plans. It's nice when someone does the work for you, and all you have to do is magnetize a calendar to your fridge directing you to a meaningful and purposeful way to spend the holiday hours with your family. Here are some of those great resources that I appreciate so much. I hope you do, too.

Free Kids' Advent Calendar from Kids Corner

Advent Conspiracy: Turn Christmas Upside Down {worship fully} {spend less} {give more} {love all}

And in case you have time to read, Noel Piper's book Treasuring God in Our Traditions covers more than just Christmas traditions. It will spark ideas for other year-round family traditions centered on Christ.

As for us, we are looking forward to breaking out the Bible verse paper chain during the month of December and adding links to it.

Merry Christmas from our family to yours!

I love Noel Piper's Book. I read it a few years ago when Carson was a tiny baby. I need to read it again and be reminded of all the great ideas. I just printed out the Advent Calendar. I like it because the stuff on it is actually stuff we can do during this busy season. Hope you all are well!
