Advent 2016: Make Ready


This year, I’m teaming up with Heidi at I Love My Shepherd for an Advent Season Photo Challenge! Advent consists of the weeks leading up to Christmas, when we prepare our hearts and minds for the coming of the Savior. This Photo Challenge is a fun way to express our faith, get into the Word, and be creative this holiday season.

There are several ways to participate.

First, get the Advent 2016 Devotions. There are two ways to do this: download them with the link at the end of this post, or  receive them each day in your inbox by subscribing to either of our blogs. The devotion for each day is about 3-5 sentences long, so it’ll be short and sweet!

Second, post your Advent 2016 Photo Challenge pictures on social media using #Advent2016, #ilovemyshepherd, and #graftedheart. Here are some examples.

something from another generation. #Advent2016 #ilovemyshepherd #graftedheart
Advent countdown or wreath. #Advent2016 #ilovemyshepherd #graftedheart
something warm to wear. #advent2016 #ilovemyshepherd #graftedheart

See? Pretty easy. And you can participate as frequently as you’d like — here and there, or every day. And if you do participate every day by posting photos and using the hashtags indicated, you’ll be entered to win our fabulous New Year’s Eve Prize Pack!


More than anything, we want this to be a stress-free activity to enrich your Advent.

We pray this Advent resource helps you to reflect on the heart of the season and the love of Jesus Christ in your lives and families, as you Make Ready for His coming!

Here’s the PDF!
