Advent is my favorite season.
“For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder,and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.” Isaiah 9:6
Something beautiful happens as we prepare to celebrate the arrival of our Saviour. The intentional readiness and study builds anticipation and joy each day.
Listed below are five books that help me to prepare my heart and family for Advent.
