Time for my semi-annual post… ha ha! It really does feel that way lately as it’s been quite the hiatus for me with being mom to a baby again. My daughter, Selah is now 8 months! Hard to believe! Anyway… you can imagine… hence the title, why I would be blogging to you as it gets close to December. Yes! You are correct! It’s Truth in the Tinsel Eve month! Seriously, it does feel that way as I need to be preparing for it since it begins December 1st!
New to my blog and asking what is Truth in the Tinsel (TNT)? Glad you asked! It is an advent EXPERIENCE to do with your kids during the entire month of December. This is my fourth year doing TNT, and we still get very excited about doing it!
Well, I also want to share with you about an exciting thing that happened last week to me. Amanda, from TNT (Yes! The author!!) contacted me about doing a post for her on an activity that I have done with my kids as an Elf on the Shelf alternative! I’m still feeling a bit giddy and am in awe that someone that I have looked up to wants me to share this with her!! Y’all, I literally jumped up out of my chair and screamed when I read her message to me! Selah actually giggled at me! I know she is a normal person that God has used immensely in my life as well as numerous others, but she ranks up there for me along with Beth Moore!
Anyway, I will be doing a post on how we do a different activity that we started last year instead of Elf on the Shelf. We never purchased this elusive elf, but I’ve collided with him at my son’s school among other places. I’m not saying that it’s bad to use the elf as a fun way to celebrate Christmas. I have just never gotten into it. I’ve heard it mentioned to even use your elf with Truth in the Tinsel to share what the clue for the day or even to share a verse for the day. Over the past 3 years, I feel like God has been guiding me to come up with something new to do. I can’t wait to share it with you!!
So….Are you ready?? I’ve been working on an ebook to bring my activity idea to you! It’s almost done in time for this Advent season! I’m in awe and amazed that God is using me to share about what He has done for us through sending His Son as a baby and growing Him into a man to die for us. Here’s a little sneak peek of what it is…
Stay tuned for my next post explaining The Christmas Cross Hunt, and the upcoming release of the eBook!! Yay!
