A Gentle Advent™ – Jesse Tree is our second installation of our popular Charlotte Mason-inspired A Gentle Advent™ courses. These beautiful Advent journeys include Scripture, handicrafts, poetry and music study, tea times, art study, and allow you to slow down and savor the beauty of the season with your family.
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 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.
Unrush your holiday season this year and experience A Gentle Advent.
A Gentle Advent™ – Jesse Tree
A Gentle Advent™ – Jesse Tree is a hybrid online course containing both digital elements and PDFs for you to print, activities for you to complete, and inspiration to guide you through this season.
When you have purchased A Gentle Advent™ – Jesse Tree, you will see a “My Courses” tab in the main menu. Click there and begin with the Welcome Module for you, the parent, and the links to your 24 daily modules. The activities are mainly Charlotte Mason inspired. The 24 daily modules are for viewing and working through with your children.
The course begins with an Advent Scripture Journal. The Scripture study is done daily to encourage the habit of devotion. There are printables, recipes, handicrafts, art and poetry studies, hymns and carols, an advent calendar and more included in the course. Each PDF printable is linked on it’s corresponding day.
These activities are all meant to flow through what our family calls “Holiday Homeschool”. We do a light version of homeschool during the holiday season and this allows us to stay in the habit of learning, but also allows us to explore the season. A Gentle Advent – Jesse Tree will work for your family through regular, light, or “take the month of December off” homeschooling.
There is a private Facebook group for families using A Gentle Advent™ to share their projects and ask questions.
We cannot wait to walk through this beautiful season with you!
