Families With Purpose: Advent Seaon

Photobucket
As December rapidly approaches -and sooner each year- I want to make sure that my family stops to remember this time, not just the crazed shopping, gifts, parties, and food. Because while these are all good things, I want Providence to know the purpose.

Families With Purpose carries a fantastic tool to slow down a bit this season, an Advent Kit. We've done advent wreaths in years past and I think it's a fantastic way to stop and pause. Our wreath was fun to make and leaves it open to let the kids decorate it with really anything. I love the activity ideas and devotionals included and will be looking forward to each Advent Sunday.

Families With Purpose is so much more then an online store it's filled with articles, ideas and tips dedicated "to helping busy parents create a meaningful family life for themselves and their children."

So go ahead, do something purposeful this Advent Season
.

Buy it:
You can purchase an Advent Kit directly from Families With Purpose.

A Simple Coupon! Use coupon code 'save25' for 25% off purchase on Black Friday and weekend *Valid Thursday November 27th - Sunday November 30th*

  8. Oh how wonderful! I was introduced to the candle-lighting tradition of Advent by my in-laws, who read the Christmas story from the bible and sing Christmas Hymns at the lighting of each one. It's pretty amazing, and I'd love to continue that tradition with our own children. Thank you!
