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!

Christine5 Stars Out Of 5For Digging Deeper Into the People and Places Surrounding Christ's BirthNovember 25, 2017ChristineQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I picked this book up after Christmas a couple years ago. I had planned to use it the following year only to discover it was meant to be started the first of November. This year I put it where I was sure to remember. I'm SO glad I did.
I love reading and rereading the familiar passages daily, looking at them carefully from different points of view. Ann Marie includes Old Testament prophecy where it points to the New Testament. She manages to involve the reader in a very personal way. For example, you are challenged to consider questions you might ask of those who were there during this miraculous time. Mary, Elizabeth, Joseph, the shepherds etc... even Harod. She gives Biblical and historical perspective, as well as personal.
This work is blessed in that it has brought new life and understanding to a precious story I've known my whole life. With this study you cannot just skim over for the big picture. You will intimately consider minute, yet profound, pieces that point to God's brilliant and loving plan. I have already recommended this book to loved ones. It is time and money well spent.

Veronica hall5 Stars Out Of 5December 27, 2006Veronica hallThis 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.
