Oh friends. What an amazing and overwhelming few weeks it’s been for me. What started as a challenge on my blog turned into a Facebook group with 2500 people, which turned into an eBook and a print book. All in less than two weeks.
It seems we have some catching up to do.
I love Advent. Love it. I love reading Advent books, participating in seasonal crafts, making my own countdown… I was the even unofficial ‘Advent fairy’ in my faith group a few years ago (the requirements of the job were unclear, beyond being very very excited about Advent). Along with Christmas, it is my favorite time of year. I love the process of celebrating the season and preparing for the holiday!
Regular readers also know that I really enjoy Bible journaling. As a liberal Christian, Bible journaling is a really fun and meaningful process for me, and a great way for me to get to know the Bible better. My posts on Bible journaling, both here on the blog and on my Instagram account, have been so well-received that I’ve been thinking about a way to share my love for Advent, creativity, and community with those of you who would care to join me. After mulling it over for a few days, I came up with the idea of an Advent Bible journaling challenge: Advent Illustrated.
