Advent for Kids is a discipleship tool that will take the whole family on a journey to discover who Jesus really is. In a world full of increasing busyness, consumerism and the ups and downs of life, this book offers families a chance to press pause and go on a journey of discovery from the manger to the cross and on to the soon return of Jesus as they discover the true meaning of Christmas and the gospel together.

Adapted by established children’s author Karen Collum from last year’s Advent, Advent for Kids is truly a game changer for families. Each devotional includes discussion questions to ponder and also action points to consolidate the learning each day. Children will hear new and sometimes old stories, memories and insights from their parents’ lives and what Christmas, the Advent and Jesus really means to them. Parents will also hear and observe their children wondering about and discovering the real Jesus in the Christmas story.

The stories are short and the whole devotional can be completed in 15 to 20 minutes each day but by claiming the moments together through the use of this book, you might create a new daily rhythm in your family that will transform your life and theirs and create a legacy that will rebound down to eternity.

Advent for Kids may well be the most important journey you will ever take your family on. This book will strengthen family relationships as you place Jesus at the centre each day. These God moments will provide discipleship anchor points upon which the whole family can hang their faith and this is the greatest Christmas gift a parent could ever give to their children. This book and these experiences are also a great gift that you could give to another family in this Christmas season.

I highly recommend this book to families everywhere. It is a game changer. Thank you, Karen and Nathan, for providing this opportunity for families to connect in a significant way this Christmas, to the story, each other but most of all to the divine.
