Publisher's Description

LET YOUR TREE TELL THE STORY

 

Bring Christ back to Christmas by giving your children a devotional experience that adorns your tree with Christian symbols.

* The Advent Jesse Tree
    
DEVOTIONS

This book offers 25 devotions for each day from December 1st to December 25th, Christmas Day... the day Christians celebrate that God's purpose was finally revealed in the coming of the savior, Jesus Christ.
Each devotion traces the heritage of Jesus through the stories and prophecies of the Old Testament. 
The Advent Jesse Tree enables individuals and families to engage in a more meaningful celebration of the Christmas season.
These daily Advent devotions are written in two versions (one for children and one version for adults) including a scripture, a story & commentary, questions to ask, a prayer, and a song.
 
* The Advent Jesse Tree
    ORNAMENT CRAFTS

 

Each devotional story is paired with a representative symbol that traces the heritage of Jesus…such as a lamb, a dove, a rainbow, a heart, a star, etc.
Children and their parents can utilize the symbolic line art printed with each daily devotion to craft meaningful ornaments.
These symbols coincide with the prayers, a memory verses, questions for children, and songs found in the devotions for that day.
 
Finally, on Christmas day, your tree will be filled with reminders of 25 Bible stories that led up to Christ’s birth.

    We have used this precious little book for years and bought this edition as a gift for a friend. It is beautiful and a highlight of our Christmas season as we read the devotions together and hang handmade ornaments on our own little Jesse Tree. With all the clutter of the holiday season, this is our family's way of focusing on the Saviour and all the promises He fulfilled! Love it!

    The whole family has been pleased with this book. The symbols make it easy for the children to remember the story and relate it to a verse they have memorized. Permission has been granted by the author to copy the illustration within the book, for ease of finding the ornamental symbols. We colored ours with pencil and hang them on some leafless branches we call our 'Jesse Tree'. We all love the variety of hymns and spiritual songs they list ( I only wished they were all in one(1) book, for my convience). The scripture passages bring us all back to the Truth of God's word. The thought provoking questions at the end keep everyone attentive. I enjoy reading the adult's devotion in the morning then, as a family, have the children's devotion, sing the songs, and hang the symbol at night. I look forward to using this book every year, bring God's word closer to our hearts.

    Light up your Christmas with a new tradition! . . . I was expecting another "devotional book" rolling off the "printing press," though what I received was an outlook I'd passed around before, though "never shared." How stingy of me. This is a wonderful way to bring Peace to Christmas, end your fears of the endless shopping; and lay down in green pastures with our Father, Jesus. . . . Rev.Ron
