counting the days, lighting the candles | advent book giveaway


i have a treat for y'all today.

jess thompson and elyse fitzpatrick have written an advent devotional, 'counting the days, lighting the candles'. my friend jami nato contributed her photography skills to the book! 
i first 'met' jess and elyse through reading their parenting book, and i've enjoyed interacting with them in social media. i am so blessed by each of their hearts for the gospel and their genuine love for others. i know you'll be blessed by this advent devotional they've put together for us! 

this book is gospel-centered and for all ages! with readings for parents and children, plus a weekly activity to do together to prepare your hearts for christmas. we will be using a countdown calendar along with it, and maybe some additional activities from here!

these lovely ladies want to give one of you a copy to enjoy this advent season!
to enter, follow the rafflecopter instructions below. there are lots of entry options! 

"a day is coming when there will be more than enough of everything and all my desires for sin will have been transformed into love for him. i'll see the burning sands of this sin-riddled world transformed into cleansing, life-giving pools; i'll watch the "thirsty ground" change into springs of water." - counting the days, lighting the candles
