This year, thanks to starting homeschooling, we decided to take a bit different approach to Advent, and include daily lessons and activities, as part of Miss Grace's schooling structure.
So I started looking for some different Advent resources and found THREE great books, that together not only share the greatest bible story, they offer ways to incorporate reading, art, science AND music, into he daily lessons. YEAH! So I'll not only be sharing about the 3 books with you, leading up TO Advent (can you believe we are ONLY 2 1/2 weeks away? Seriously, where has the year gone?), but also some of our activities-just look for the button below for a link to them!
And now for the first book in our study program, that incorporates books that appeal to kids and adults alike, C.S. Lewis' Narnia series!
About the Author:
I grew up in Hyde Park, on the South Side of Chicago, and worked an assortment of random jobs (organic farmer, mental health worker, legal assistant) before being ordained an Episcopal priest in 2007. I now serve as Senior Associate Rector of St. Chrysostom's Church in Chicago, and previous led The Church of St. Benedict in Bolingbrook, IL, from 2007-16.
