Discover the Simplicity and Beauty of A Gentle Advent

Here's a peek into A Gentle Advent - A Charlotte Mason inspired Advent journey


If you’re looking for something special to do with your family through Advent, this is a beautiful resource. I love the variety of activities. From picture study to handicrafts to nature study- you’ll find all of them here to help you enjoy the season. 

I also loved that the activities in the course will bring together the whole family. There are journals appropriate for the kids as well as for the adults. There is daily Scripture with fewer verses suggested for the younger kids to copy while the older kids and adults copy more. Because I have four kids who have a six-year age range, I love to find resources that I can use to bring all of us together in learning- especially in a holiday study.

A serene and beautiful Advent isn't a myth!

Does the busyness of the holiday season seem to runaway with you?

Does it feel like Christmas arrives and your entire season is a blur, leaving you wondering if your children really understand why we celebrate? 

Have you even talked about Jesus outside of church?

Have your kids asked what does Advent even mean?

I know how that feels. I want my own children to know that Christmas is not about Santa, getting everything on their list, or baking endless sugar cookies, but that we are celebrating the Greatest Gift!

I want Advent to be a time for them to grow close to their Savior.

I desperately wanted a simple approach to help teach them devotion, reflection, generosity, and to enjoy the beauty and the meaning of advent season in all it’s glorious expectation.

Can you relate? 

A Gentle Advent  was born from the desire to have a calm and bright celebratory season. A way to stop the season from running away with us. A way to escape the overwhelm that threatens each December. A way to draw our family closer to each other and closer to our Lord.

I was so thankful when I saw this course! It was exactly what I wanted for my family this year. An easy exploration through Advent. 

I loved the verses and ideas to ponder. Sometimes when reading the bible with my kids, I have trouble bringing to their level. This was so perfect!
Plus, easy craft ideas that we can do to make the season more memorable about the true meaning of Christmas.
