Great Free Advent and Christmas Devotionals


The season of Advent and Christmas is upon us. Time to celebrate!

Some of you are thinking, “…Celebrate??? How can you celebrate when when I am trying to plan out my Black Friday shopping?”

I have a couple resources that will not overwhelm you that might be your solution to being able to reflect and celebrate during this crazy time of year.

1. Advent Devotional by Awana.

This one is simply titled Advent Devotional 2014

Several writers contributed to this devotional bring an array of perspectives that all lead to Christ. You can take your pick of a customized devotional for an individual, a couple, or a family edition.


2. Christmas Devotional by Dr. Michael Kennedy

This is the devotional I used last year with my family. The author is a great friend of mine. His heart for ministry within the family is huge! Here you will find a daily resource that will connect with your family and draw your kids’ minds toward Christ during the Christmas season.
