Bring Christ back to Christmas by giving your children a devotional experience that adorns your tree with Christian symbols.
The Advent Jesse Tree 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. This book 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 for adults) including a scripture, a story and commentary, questions to ask, a prayer, and a song.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, 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 Christs birth.
MrsP5 Stars Out Of 5ExcellentJanuary 6, 2017MrsPQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5My children (ages 5, 2.5, and 9 months) LOVED this devotional. We did not have a physical Jesse Tree with ornaments this year (though may try adding that next year) but even so they looked forward to looking up our scripture and reading through the story and answering the questions every day. We liked it so much I am now on the hunt for something similar to use for our every day family devotions! We will definitely be using this for years to come. Highly recommended!

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!

LroyalroyvermontAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5December 21, 2011LroyalroyvermontAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5The 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.
