On [most] Mondays, I share my mixed tape of a smattering of thoughts, ideas, videos, songs, etc. that stuck out to me in the past week. Here is this Monday’s mix:
:: The kids and I enjoyed these two pictures books this past week: The Crayons’ Christmas by Drew Daywalt and Oliver Jeffers and Prairie Christmas by Elizabeth Van Steenwyk and Ronald Himler.
:: As a family, we’ve been traversing through this Advent calendar which goes through the Jesus Storybook Bible. I recommend giving yourself lots of grace if you have to skip days and/or come back to them. I’ve found this to be a great walk through Scripture leading up to Jesus’s birth and the pictures are just as beautiful as the unfolding of the story.
:: And here is another video of a Christmas song cover we have on our December playlist, “Silent Night” by the Hunts sisters.
