What is Advent?

Today is the first day of Advent, my favorite time of year. This is the season of reflecting on the first coming of Jesus as well as preparing our hearts for His second coming. During these weeks of reading and preparation, we are reminded that God ALWAYS keeps His promises. In writing my Christmas Unit Study, I wanted to make sure that children learned about the Old Testament prophecies and God's fulfillment of each one through His Son. They need a clear picture of God's commitment to us, and His love that knows no bounds. If you are wondering what Advent is all about, here are a few great resources for learning more about this special time:
