Advent 2017

Hold the phone – I can’t believe tomorrow is the start of the last month of the YEAR!

The month of December brings lots of Christmas joy, starting with the season of Advent. Advent is a time of spiritual preparation to guide our hearts toward the celebration of the Lord’s birth, the meaning of the season of Christmas.

Over time, many people have created new ways to celebrate and prepare during Advent season. Some popular activities and ideas are:

Lighting of the Advent Wreath

Lectio Divina for Advent

Advent Activity Calendars

Prayer Books

…and so much more!

This season is special to me because I will be participating in Advent in a way I never have before. This year, I will be a part of the Blessed is She Advent // In The Beginning Prayer Journal. Author Laura Kelly Fanucci has written daily reflections, daily calls to action with prayer, and journaling space to reflect.

I would love for you to be a part of Advent this season in a bigger way than ever before.  I invite you to join me and hundreds of others participating in the Blessed is She Advent Journal. You can read more about the journal and the downloadable version here.

I pray that this Advent season you are able to slow down to cherish this season of joy.
