Faith Along The Way:
Christmas is filled with magic and wonder for children. Before having kids of my own, I dreamed of an elaborate holiday and the memories we would make together. Fast forward six years and two special needs kids later, and this busy mom longs for a simple Christmas season.
Imagine my delight when I stumbled on a new Christian family tradition; A Shepherd’s Treasure! This Christ-centered activity comes with a bendable, plush Shepherd, the book, Advent cards and a plush baby Jesus in a manger. Then, throughout the season of Advent, the Shepherd encourages the children with Scripture reading, Christ-like character and random acts of kindness.
