We all experience countdown seasons in our lives. A child counts the days until their birthday, an expectant mom counts down to the birth of her baby, and a bride numbers the days to her wedding day. Advent is just that! Counting down to the birth of Jesus Christ as well as counting down to His return.

In this episode, Lori discusses ideas that help guide the Advent seasons, including:

  • Celebrating Advent with children,
  • ornaments that tell the story of Jesus,
  • and other helpful Advent resources.
