I love your Advent countdown pictures, what a creative idea! We have a quilted tree with pockets that we use to count down the days until Christmas... but your retelling the story of Jesus is truly "the reason for the season"! As for the parable of the talents, I too have been thinking about and struggling with what gifts I have that I need to be using for God's glory.


I love your Advent boxes. Where did you get the little story pieces for each day?
