Christmas is one of my favorite times of the year. I love every single thing about it. Some of my favorite days are days the kids and I bake cookies, make hot cocoa, and snuggle in with a Christmas movie.

Up until four or five years ago, I had no idea what Advent really was. While I grew up in a Christian family who loved Christmas and celebrated the true meaning of the day, Advent was foreign to me. When I finally did research on what it really means, I started to get excited to celebrate Advent. It has become one of my very favorite things to do at Christmas time.

This month's Illustrated Faith kit is all about Advent. In fact, that is what the kit is called! This Advent is such a fun kit and is going to be the perfect addition to the holiday. In the Advent kit, Shanna Noel, creator of Illustrated Faith, and her friend Ali invite us to join them with eight devotionals (one every three days) to read and reflect during the season of Advent. Then, there are fun tools in the kit to help you illustrate what you've read and reflected on. Shanna says, "Grab some hot cocoa and your Bible and let's rejoice in this season together!"

The devotions include:
1 - Promise
2 - Covenant
3 - Anticipation
4 - Prophecy
5 - Expectation
6 - Royalty
7 - Light
8 - Fellowship

The color scheme and abundance of hot cocoa make this kit so much fun. I can't wait to add each piece to my Bible, journal and even my agenda planner.

Each kit includes:
1 clear stamp collection
1 roll of washi tape
1 thank you card from Shanna
1 package of paper pieces (13 pieces)
2 sheets of translucent stickers
8 advent devotional cards

Advent begins Sunday, December 3rd and ends on Christmas Eve. Advent is perfect to do in your daily quiet time or as an additional time in the Word later on in the day.

My favorite thing is to do Advent as a family. Get each of your kids a spiral notebook, you can find them for around $0.25 at Walmart. Read the devotion together and talk about it. Then share your Advent kit supplies. Encourage your kids to write out something from the devotion that really meant something to them or a prayer, then have them illustrate their entry with the stickers, stamps, washi and paper pieces. It's going to be so fun to see what each person creates in their entry! I cannot wait for December 3rd to begin Advent with my family.
