2015 Advent Devotional

Available Online

Amid the busy month before Christmas, the Advent season is an opportunity to do the most important thing we can do—prepare our hearts to receive Christ. The devotional is written so you can read from it every day or as often as you can, so don’t be discouraged if you miss a few pages.
