An Adult Coloring Book with Advent Devotions

The Reason for the Season

Advent Devotions Front Cover Final 4 web

Christmas means many things to many people. Office parties, family reunions, and church socials add to the holiday cheer.

Of course if we attend those events, we should contribute something. So we bake. We shop. We decorate. And we practice for cantatas, plays, and concerts. As though we don’t have enough to do in our everyday lives, we have to have Christmas to end the year. We run. We wrap. We orchestrate. With all these activities, it’s hard to distinguish holiday cheer from holiday stress.

But wait. There is a greater reason for the season that has little to do with all the hoopla. We know it. We just have trouble holding on to it and making it a part of our lives.

This book, The Reason for the Season, with devotions that focus on Jesus, His ministry, and His commission, encourages you to put Christ back in Christmas. Each devotion concludes with joy-restoring suggestions.

The 33 adult coloring pages were designed to sooth the weary soul, relieve the stress of this very special season.

Merry Christmas!
