"Is It Time Yet: A Family Advent Journey" is a storybook and family worship guide designed to walk your family through the storyline of the Bible in anticipation of the birth of Christ. As you journey from the first promise of rescue after the Fall, and through all the familiar stories of the Old Testament, children will be reminded that the Rescuer came at just the right time. With daily readings and hands-on activities, children will see how the whole Bible points to Jesus coming into the world to die on the cross for our sins.
"Is It Time Yet?" is a 62-page full-color, ebook storybook perfect for read-aloud in the days leading up to Christmas. In this book, you'll find 25 stories meant to be read 1 per day, December 1-25.
Each story stands alone, but together they tell the overarching story of the Bible, help children to see that Jesus came at just the right time, and remind us each day that Christmas is more about Jesus on the cross than Jesus in the manger. Each story ends with the question, is it time yet? to connect children to the gospel each day.
Along with the ebook, you'll receive a digital download of the Family Devotional Guide. The devotional guide includes 25 days of devotions with Scripture reading, discussion questions, suggestions for using the pictures in the book for discussion, and two activities (one for younger children - age 2-7 and one for older children - age 8+).
You will receive a download link for both the ebook and worship guide at the time of purchase.
We also have a softcover Spanish version of the book available on Amazon
