First Week of Advent

Aside from the usual purchase of the Christmas tree and decorating of the house, my family has a few other Advent traditions that we'd like to share.

Our sons are 5, 3, and 9 months old and we want to celebrate Advent in a way they can understand.  We started by lighting our Advent wreath every evening while we read a devotion from Living Light was Born One Night by Arden W. Mead.  This devotional is perfect for young children because the Bible verses and meditations are brief and the reflection questions they ask are at an appropriate level for our kids.  This little booklet is also great because it's not limited to 24 days -- it has enough devotions for the 4 full weeks of Advent!
