Truth in the Tinsel

This year we embarked on the Truth in the Tinsel advent project.  It was a bit intimidating.  24 days of crafts and bible readings…..with 3 kids!  I knew Will would be great with it.  The other 2….not so much.  But Ella liked the craft part so that helped.  Wyatt, well, he was just Wyatt. 

We detoured from the book many nights.  But kept the lesson the same, just changing up the activities.  Some nights we did coloring pages.  Some nights we used our play nativity set.  They rarely made it thru the short stories/lessons but we hit home the important parts and plugged along.

Proud of our family for making a point every single night during advent to talk about the real reason for the season.  And all 3 can re-tell some portion of the Christmas story, so it was a success. I can’t wait to do it again next year!
