Ten Advent Recommendations

It’s the most wonderful time of the year: Shopping for yourself guilt-free.

Kidding (sort of).

This time of year, we get to focus on the coming of our Savior, Jesus. Usually, I pause my “normal” Bible reading pattern and read through an Advent Devotional.

Below are ten. The first five, I have read and highly recommend.

The last five (*), I haven’t but hope to soon. Maybe I will shop for myself? (“Have yourself a merry little Christmas,” right?)

Enjoy clicking.
