I hope that you’ll be joining us for this year’s Advent study, Advent Illustrated: Waiting ‘Round the Wreath. This is our biggest and most comprehensive study yet! I’m so excited to have you journaling with us.
This post will serve as your homepage for all the resources for this study. As we go through the study and new resources become available, they will be added to this page. Be sure to bookmark it and check back often!
The Advent Study
The Advent study comes in eBook and print book form. Both include six plans and twenty-eight devotional prompts. There’s still time to order either or both and make sure you get them in time to join us!
There is an Advent Library where you can access all the printables and resources for the study. The password for the library is on the last page of both the eBook and the print book, but I’m also making the resources available here.

‘Round the Candlelight Poem
Video and Music Playlists
Advent Illustrated Weekly Videos
This study comes with weekly “blessing” videos, in which I light a candle in the Advent wreath and say a prayer and blessing for you as you journal through the week. The videos will become available on a weekly basis, on the Sunday of every week, and will be added to this playlist. You can subscribe to our channel here, or see the videos on this playlist:
Classical Weekly Playlist
Each week of our study comes with one “song” day, in which we study a song or hymn from the biblical text itself! These hymns have often been put to music, and we have compiled a classical playlist so you can listen to the songs and get in the spirit of Advent. Below is the Classical version of the playlist.
Modern Weekly Playlist
For those of you who find modern music to be a better way to connect with God, our modern music playlist offers four modern renditions of the same songs from our study.
Musical Playlist for Journaling Time
Finally, we have a playlist on Spotify for those of you who like to listen to music while you journal. I am working to get this playlist on YouTube, as well.
Every day in our Advent study comes with a scripture verse, some of which have been transformed into scripture prints that will be shared here and on our Instagram. You are welcome to print these resources out to trace or print. Below are the ones that are already available:
