One of our favorite family traditions this time of year is the Advent guide by @theaustinstone! It has daily personal devotionals (that have wrecked me to my core 😭) as well as a family devotional that corresponds to coloring ornaments to hang on the tree! This season can be so busy and stressful, it’s easy to miss the ONE we’re truly celebrating! What are your favorite things that help you and your family stay focused on Jesus this month?
PS. One of these years we are going to be rock stars and complete all 25 days!! #graceupongrace
Whenever I’m traveling in a foreign country I try to learn at least a couple words or phrases from the local language. I usually just go for the basics like how to say hello, yes and no, thank you, I’m sorry, where’s the bathroom, etc. While I was in Israel my friend taught me the phrase “אפשר את הבאנג בבקשה” (effsha-etta-bong-bavakasha). This ended up being the single most useful phrase, that I now strive to learn in any and every language, which means—“bring me the bong, please!”
