Does the busyness of the holiday season seem to runaway with you?
Does it feel like Christmas arrives and your entire season is a blur, leaving you wondering if your children really understand why we celebrate? Have you even talked about Jesus outside of church?
I know how that feels. I want my own children to know that Christmas is not about Santa, getting everything on their list, or baking endless sugar cookies, but that we are celebrating the Greatest Gift!
I want Advent to be a time for them to grow close to their Savior.
I desperately wanted a simple approach to help teach them devotion, reflection, generosity, and to enjoy the beauty of the Advent season in all it’s glorious expectation.
Can you relate?
A Gentle Advent was born from the desire to have a calm and bright celebratory season. A way to stop the season from running away with us. A way to escape the overwhelm that threatens each December. A way to draw our family closer to each other and closer to our Lord.
And honestly, I wanted a way to keep learning trough the holiday season without feeling so overwhelmed by “homeschool”.
Unrush your holiday season this year and experience A Gentle Advent.
A Gentle Advent Course Contents
A Gentle Advent is a course containing both digital elements and PDFs for you to print, activities for you to complete, and inspiration to guide you through this season.
The course begins with an Advent Scripture Journal for parents and another for children. The Scripture study is done daily to encourage the habit of devotion. There are printables, recipes, handicrafts, art and poetry studies, hymns and carols, nature studies, and more included in the course. Each PDF printable is linked on it’s corresponding day.
These activities are all meant to flow through what our family calls “Holiday Homeschool”. We do a light version of homeschool during the holiday season and this allows us to stay in the habit of learning, but also allows us to explore the season. A Gentle Advent will work for your family through regular, light, or “take the month of December off” homeschooling.
There is a private Facebook group for families using A Gentle Advent to share their projects and ask questions.
We cannot wait to walk through this beautiful season with you!
