🕯️"Finding Simple Wonder & Joy in Advent" is here! (And an update on YOUR giving!)
I pray that “To Light Their Way: Finding Simple Wonder & Joy in Advent” guides you to the glittering hope in Christ alone. Each week includes snippets of more comprehensive prayers from To Light Their Way, along with a simple conversation/journal prompt, one tangible practice, & a breath prayer from a Psalm.
Each week fits on one page and should hopefully add peace to your season — not add stress to your to-do list!
Simply download the PDF on your phone or tablet, or if you’re a paper person like me, print it out. May you be filled with the comforting love of Emmanuel, God With Us as we anticipate the birth of Christ.
An Update On The Cornerstone of Hope Christmas Giving
Well, friends. You showed up. (I knew you would!) Remember my last email? Well, we were able to purchase EVERY SINGLE THING on the wishlists for Cornerstone of Hope. AND we were able to pool the remaining funds together to give as a donation to help cover additional costs.
Every item is going to be hand-delivered this Christmas by Eric himself. This is hope embodied. Thank you. Because of your generosity, we were able to work together to ease Cornerstone’s budget so they can continue to ensure vulnerable children get health care, safe housing, education, and compassionate care in their local settings.
Holiday Shopping Tips
Today is Small Business Saturday! Most smaller (and even larger) retailers have sold out and are waiting for a second printing (!!), which will come in the new year.
But! If you act fast you can still stretch your dollars and support local. Here are your shopping options to make holiday gifting easy & support a small business:
Order from Soul Book Nook (they ship; 10 currently in stock!)
Order from Fabled (they ship; 3 currently in stock!)
If they sell out fast: There’s still one steady option for grabbing your copies of To Light Their Way with plenty of time for Christmas: Amazon. And they’re including To Light Their Way in their BUY 3 FOR THE PRICE OF 2 Deal. (What?!)
That means you can get three copies of To Light Their Way for only $35.98…the list price is $19.99 for one, so this is actually a great deal. (Pair it with a cozy blanket, some coffee or tea, a candle, a journal, or some warm socks for gifting made super easy.)
Just add all three to your cart (you can also mix & match with other eligible books) and proceed to checkout, and you’ll see the price change, no code necessary.
Whatever this season drums up in your heart (joy, grief, a swirling of the two) I hope you know just how deeply you are loved. If you do use the advent resource, I would love to hear how it works for you and your family. Feel free to tag me on social media, too! I made it for you — mix it up and use it for however works best each week. And know that there longer versions of each prayer in To Light Their Way!
May we continue to love God and our neighbor as ourselves in this season of anticipation,
