I wrote this little set of devotions about 5 years ago, printed them out on business cards and put them on a key ring. I did this as an invitation to our church for Advent and Christmas services.
Inside it said “This little devotional is small and can fit into a pocket, a purse, a backpack, or even a cup holder in the car. It is designed to give you and your family a journey to the manger by focusing on the Christmas story Scripture and some prophesies that foretold the coming of Christ. that is what advent is all about. simply the coming of christ.
With small children, read the scripture and do the activity. Older children can read the “more Reading” from the bible. As you get closer to christmas you read the christmas story over and over. The goal is to memorize the story. Make the activities as simple or as complex as you like. Most important, have fun as you spend time with your family this Advent season.”
With the use of iPhones and other smart phones, this “pocket devotion series” can take on a different life…
