Originally written for the Advent season.
Inspiring for any time of the year.
It’s that time of year when we as Christians celebrate the coming of Jesus. But good grief. Does anyone else feel like you just put away last year’s Christmas decoration-paraphernalia? Well…there’s no time to belabor how old we’re getting and how quickly time flies. The season is here. And I know the pull. I know the beat ever-pulsing from culture chanting for us to buy and get…and forget Jesus. Yet this time of year can be so precious to our faith if we purposefully practice remembering.”
“This 4-week study guide is one thing we can do, alone or with our family, to purposefully remember Jesus. It’s a few minutes set-aside each day to reflect on Him. A time to press deeper into our God so that when December 25th rolls around we won’t regret; we’ll rejoice. Because we’ve walked into the season hand-in-hand with Jesus. (Excerpts from the introduction of Then Came Jesus)
4-week Bible study

what others are saying:
“I especially want to thank you for the prayers you included at the end of each day. Finding the words to pray is one of my biggest struggles when it comes to spending time with our Lord and your beautiful words really helped me open up. I love how you were somehow able to express exactly what I was thinking and feeling so eloquently. I am a little sad that the study is over but inspired to continue studying God’s word, focusing on His truths and speaking with Him about what is really weighing on my heart. Thank you again, I truly feel blessed to have read your words.” ~Maghan
“There seems to be a loss of words for me to describe how deeply this study touched my heart and how, even at some points, it made me laugh out loud.” ~Patty
“I appreciate how you didn’t just dwell on Jesus’ birth in the study, but you started from His birth and completed the whole picture…Each day God spoke to me through the study and reminded me of His promises.” ~Elaine
