- Weekly Scripture passages, hymns, and poems,
- Daily Messiah listening schedule with background information from Greg Wilbur

- Advent, Christmas, and Epiphany recipes, and
- Suggestions for celebrating the Advent feasts of St. Nicholas
and St. Lucia.

Cindy Rollins has written a wonderful guide for families to begin their own family Advent observance.
Each day has short readings from the Bible and segments of Handel's Messiah, and each week includes suggestions for an Advent hymn, poetry, and memory work. It is presented in such a way that families can easily do more or do less, based on what their family needs.
Our family's Advent observance has grown through the years, and this year I'm looking forward to using this guide and listening to the Messiah.
(And I've purchased extra copies as gifts for several people in our extended family!)
The additional resources truly round out the book. I gleaned fantastic ideas for making advent and Christmas meaningful for my family, and I enjoyed the hymn of the week, poems, essays, and Scripture memory suggestions.
It’s definitely worth the purchase! I’m looking forward to using it with my children for many years. We love it so much we are going to gift a copy to my husband’s parents for Christmas.
