Journal Through Advent {A Look Inside December's Tis The Season Illustrated Faith Kit} #IllustratedFaith #DaySpring #IF_tistheseason #Biblejournaling


**I received this kit as part of the Illustrated Faith Launch Team. Post contains affiliate links. All thoughts are my own.
Advent begins in just 4 days! A time to prepare our hearts and minds for the celebration of Christ's birth. How are you planning to celebrate?



There are many great traditions for celebrating advent such as:

  • Traditional Candle Lighting
  • Counting down with the Advent Calendar
  • Scripture Reading
  • Daily Kids Crafts
  • Reading Advent Devotionals

These are all great traditions, but this year there is one more that I look forward to adding to the list... journaling through Advent! Bible journaling that is!

In a season that is all about preparing your heart for Christ's coming, is there a better way to celebrate than spending time in and reflecting on God's word? This season can be so busy that it's easy to lose sight of that in the hustle and bustle. As Christmas draws nearer, I look forward to having the chance to set a little time aside each day to do some holiday journaling.

December's Illustrated Faith Monthly Devotional Kit- Tis The Season-is perfect for just that! Take a look inside:




Prepare to celebrate the birth of Jesus as Melody invites you to dive deeper into some really meaningful words during this 25-day Advent devotional.  Focusing on four special words—Hope...Love...Joy...Peace, Melody gives 25 daily prompts (along with Scripture), in hopes that you will connect with these four words, the prompts, and other details within the verse.  "May each day of this journey help build our collective excitement about the coming of Christmas day and the celebration of the Messiah!"  —Melody

Product Details:

1 devotional booklet (25 prompts with Scripture)
1 stamp pad
1 clear stamp collection with 1 sheet of cut-outs enclosed
1 roll of washi tape
1 package of 3 Scripture sharables
1 sticker
1 bow clip



Now I must admit, I have been looking forward to Christmas journaling for a few months now, so I could not wait to get my hands on this kit! And it was worth the wait! I particularly loved the amazing manger design that was carries throughout the kit. This one simple graphic so perfectly encompasses for me what the holiday is all about...



For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.


This is what Christmas is all about, and this is what we are reminded of when we study and journal the scriptures during advent and beyond.



Unlike previous devotionals that featured 14 short readings, this devotional is perfect for the counting down to Christmas with 25 daily bible readings. No long devotionals, just 25 simple verses- perfect for the busy season! Add in the fun colors and stunning designs, I for one cannot wait to journal my way to Christmas!
