Product Description

Preparing My Heart for Advent accomplishes its purpose of keeping Christ in Christmas by serving as both a seasonal Bible study and devotional. Each day of the November studies corresponds to a December devotional reading on the same topic. For example, readers will study Joseph on November 10th only to refresh their learning on this topic with a devotional on December 10.

Each week in the November Bible study portion offers thoughts for meditation and reflection. Spiritual significance is offered for common Christmas imagery, and the historical background of familiar carols is explained in detail. Suggestions are given with practical application for reaching out to others with the Christmas story.

In the author's words, Preparing My Heart for Advent will encourage readers to "stop, look, listen, and experience Immanuel--God with us--wherever we are."

Put on a familiar carol, pour a cup of peppermint tea, and settle into a reflective look at a birth unlike any other!

Publisher's Description

PREPARING MY HEART FOR ADVENT
 
Does the holiday frenzy leave you jaded toward the real meaning of Christmas?
Do you find yourself loathing "Christmas music" two days after Thanksgiving?
Then STOP the Christmas Insanity!
 
    Preparing My Heart for Advent challenges women to immerse themselves in Scriptures during the months of November and December so that they are more likely to keep Christ in Christmas rather than becoming entangled by obligations and commercialism. It accomplishes its purpose with a two-fold thrust, serving as both a seasonal Bible study and devotional. Each day of the November  studies corresponds to a December devotional reading on the same topic. For example, readers will study Joseph on November 10th only to refresh their learning on this topic with a devotional reading on December 10th.
    Each week in the November Bible study portion offers refreshing thoughts for meditation and reflection. Spiritual significance is offered for common Christmas imagery, and the historical background of familiar carols is explained in detail. Suggestions are given for reaching out to others during the season of giving.
    The December devotionals aim to keep readers in the Word of God during the busiest season of the year, celebrating and reflecting in a way that reinforces their studies in November.
In the author's words, Preparing My Heart for Advent will encourage readers to "stop, look, listen, and experience Immanuel-God with Us-wherever we are. Put on a familiar carol, pour a cup of peppermint tea, and settle into a reflective look at a birth unlike any other!

    This is a study that will change Christmas forever for you! I did this study with eight other ladies in my home. We found it to be engaging, insightful, creative and inspiring. It takes the student from the Old Testament prophecies into the culture and individual lives of the New Testament drama. We found ourselves amazed at what we did not know, but thought we did; we found ourselves identifying with the characters of God's story (and there are many more than you usually think about!). This study will help you understand more deeply the incredible gift that He gave us in His Son, Jesus, and how He moved through time and individuals to complete His desire to make a way for us to have an intimate relationship with Him. Our group hopes to repeat this study annually.
