Our Family’s First Advent

The Villatoros Christmas 2012

Believe it or not, Tony and I have never celebrated Advent. Yes, our background has a lot to do with that. Ha. Last year, I guess the newlywed status got the best of us and we didn’t plan it. This year, Desiring God is helping us out…

“Advent is an annual season of patient waiting, hopeful expectation, soul-searching, and calendar-watching marked by many churches, Christian families, and individual followers of Jesus. There’s no biblical mandate to observe Advent. It’s an optional thing—a tradition that developed over the course of the church’s history as a time of preparation for Christmas Day. Many of us find observing Advent to be personally enjoyable and spiritually profitable.”
Good News of Great Joy, Preface

I can’t imagine a better way to spend time together as a family by seeking Jesus this Christmas with these daily devotionals. Tony and I are so excited for this and wanted to share it with you all so you can consider celebrating Advent with us! Download the eBook for the Good News of Great Joy devotionals here.

Ladies, think of a fun way to set this up around the house! Pinterest has very cute ideas on how to make your own calendars and how to include the kiddos. Gentlemen, lead your family this season by making time to read these devotionals together daily.

With Joy,
Ruthie
