Tis the Season: Introduction

Thanks for joining us for the Advent study, ‘Tis the Season: Preparing Our Hearts and Homes for a Christ-Centered Christmas. If you missed the earlier post on the inspiration for this study, you can catch up here.

Our study is based on the verses found in Psalm 86:11-13:

Teach me your way, O Lord,
    that I may walk in your truth;
    unite my heart to fear your name.
I give thanks to you, O Lord my God, with my whole heart,
    and I will glorify your name forever.
For great is your steadfast love toward me;
    you have delivered my soul from the depths of Sheol.

Each week you’ll find a section on Preparing your Heart and then tips and activities for Preparing Your Home. When I teach this study “live”, I always have ladies share ways they prepare their homes for Christmas. I’d love to hear from you! Comment and share, upload a picture or two and let’s encourage and inspire one another.

As we seek to prepare our hearts and homes in order to celebrate what’s truly important this Christmas season, let’s take time to stop, look, listen and celebrate Immanuel—God with us.

I invite you to download and print the free e-book study guide that accompanies this online discussion. Continue reading “Tis the Season: Introduction”
