I LOVE "daily devotional" books like this!
They really help me with my scripture study!
I SO RELATE with the quote:
"Without meaning to we may become like that innkeeper in Bethlehem: we would love to have Jesus, but our rooms are full. Taken up with gifts, parties, acts of giving and mercy, Christmas events, ugly sweater parties, baked goods, or even family celebrations. We may make a place for Jesus among these, but it isn't always a place fit for a king."
Isn't it interesting that even GOOD things can crowd out the BEST things!
So I am GRATEFUL for books like that that bring me back to my Savior.
I ADORE how Kirsten put this book together...
"Advent is a time where we read many of the prophecies foretold of and fulfilled by Jesus. In the following devotions, I pair up the Old Testament with the New, forming a full circle."
Kirsten gives you scriptures to study...
Then she gives you a 'connection' to be made...
Followed by 'Questions for Reflection'.
An AMAZING book to be studied ANYTIME during the year!
