Customer Reviews

Good, simple Advent activity for young children.)
HappyMommy
Some of the songs we were not familiar with, but it was fine to substitute our own song instead.
L. Cramer
This is the third year we have used this book for family evening devotionals during advent.

As other reviewers mentioned, the wording really does work well for young children (good for my 3.5 year old). It makes Advent richer and more meaningful to have this evening/dinner devotional in our family.

(We also did the Advent Jesse Tree devotional at breakfast time, and had my boys color an ornament I had drawn--copied from the illustrations in the book-- then cut it out and hung it on our little "Jesse" tree each day. Good, simple Advent activity for young children.)

This is a nice little book for family devotions. It was published in 1976 which is evident in the art work mostly. The devotions are still very useful.

I found this book helpful in guiding me and my family through the advent season. Tells you when to light the candles and gives prayers and reflections for each night. Also has hymns and Christmas songs to sing.

This is the first year that we've used an Advent devotional book and we've enjoyed "We Light the Candles". Some of the devotions are a bit too involved for our 3 year old but generally the devotions are simple and good. If you are looking for a deep and insightful Advent devotional for adults and older children, this may not be a good fit but is probably ideally suited for families with children ages 4-10.

great content for older children but this isn't great with young kids. and I think there are many other songs that could have been included that are more familiar to kids in the 2000, still carols, but just not as unfamiliar, that could correspond with each light. we simplified the content and repeated the same thing every night with our two year old. he enjoyed advent.

We are not Catholic, and we didn't have an Advent Wreath/Ring. The colors and theme of each week was different than other resources we found. The script was easy to read and relate to, although we sometimes varied from the text and didn't always sing the song. It was a great addition to our family's celebration of Christmas. We will use it next year, too.

I purchased this book to use with grandchildren, but it was a bit much. It would be excellent for a Bible Study for adults to do during the Advent season

Used this past Christmas for my family's advent time. Short and simple devotion messages were perfect for my kids to understand (ages 6 and 8). Some of the songs we were not familiar with, but it was fine to substitute our own song instead.
