Advent Already?

I'm the type of person who enjoys buying the food for Thanksgiving the Tuesday before, or getting Valentine's Decorations on February 12th. I don't like rushing the season. That said, I know we who work in churches are eager to get our planning done! This newsletter has links to a lot of wonderful resources, including two advent calendars I created which can be found in the Etsy store. Newsletter subscribers receive five dollars off of any purchase ten dollars or more by using the code FIVEDOLLARSOFF until Christmas. 

Advent Resources for Your Home or Church

In the lead up to the release of my book Faithful Families (see article below!) I've put together a team of about fifty talented and enthusiastic people (called the super awesome street team!) who are working to help promote the release and make it the best it can be. I asked for their favorite Advent resources, and thought they came up with a wonderful list. Here it is: 

Christmas Love Letters from God - A charming book of love letters to your child from God. Watch my website for a review and giveaway of this book later this month! 

Storypath book reviews - A lot of great reviews of books and other resources (the link goes right to the advent section. 

Building Faith's List of Advent Resources - A lot of great resources here as well! 

The Season of the Nativity by Sybil MacBeth - A couple of people raved about this book! It goes all the way through Epiphany for those who (like me!) feel that our Christmas celebration gets cut off too early.

Another article from Building Faith about using a creche to establish lovely traditions with your family. I love the simplicity of these! 

A Homemade Year by Jerusalem Greer has a whole year's worth of ideas and inspiration centered around the liturgical year. Not limited to advent alone! 
 

Introducing Faithful Families! 

In addition to welcoming a new baby in January, I'm excited to be waiting for a professional project as well -- the release of Faithful Families this spring. Faithful Families is the second edition of Seamless Faith, and will be released with new content (ten new practices!) a new cover/title, and some additional links to web resources. I know many of you like to buy Seamless Faith for baptisms, gifts and other occasions, so I wanted you to be prepared that it's not going away, it's getting even better! It won't be ready in time for Christmas, but you might be able to sneak it in your Easter Basket. Stay tuned!
