A Christian Alternative to Elf on the Shelf


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.
