What a great Advent resource for families to use in their homes. Thank you for a quick, inexpensive resource to provide for families!

These boxes were very easy to put together! I loved that it was pretty inexpensive to put together and wasn’t too overwhelming for parents to pick up and use at home. For a busy time of year, it was just enough to be intentional but not too involved that parents were unlikely to use.

Purchased this resource for my Children’s Department. The supplies were easily gathered and the boxes were so cute once they were assembled. I have many families still unable to attend services regularly and this is such an outreach opportunity. The readings and activities were very family appropriate. Prep was much easier than activities I have done in previous years.

What a simple and inexpensive project! I ended up putting it all together in a day and spent $3 per box. I love the object lessons. I taped the objects to the cards so they wouldn’t get misplaced. I changed the images on the cards to match my church graphics, and that was really hard to format correctly. Overall, love it!

I love that I can edit the devotions to fit the theme our church is using this year during advent. I also love that the devotions are easy for families to open and implement without a lot of prep. It allows families to have some faith formation time without the stress of having to plan for them. Can’t wait to see how my families react to them this advent season.

This is my first year purchasing. I love it. So easy to use. I was able to find everything. They are on to my families.

I just purchased this and I am already loving it as I am gathering the supplies to put in the boxes. I love that it isn’t an every day task as this time of year is already so busy . Families can take time a couple of times during the week to sit down with the scripture and have a hands on activity to reenforce the message. Can’t wait to hand these out the first of December.
