NOTE ON DISCUSSION QUESTION: Most of the discussion questions with each lesson were application focused, which is good, but had little to do with the direct lesson of the Scripture. Some are useful but just not enough as we wanted our family to hear God's voice and follow His plan through the ages for mankind's redemption through a Savior-Emmanuel.
The illustrations for the ornaments you use with the daily devotions are simple and well drawn, not crude like some that are available, and are grouped in a separate section for easy copying. We copied, cut and colored all the ornaments initially but later chose 5 of the ornaments, got crafty, and made "3D" replacements; we'll do this yearly until we have all touchable, hand-made ornaments to replace the paper ones. Our daughter accompanied Dad into the woods to choose some branches to build our tree, which is very similar to the one on the cover. But we over estimated the size we needed (!) and will cut it back for next year--still love it's rustic appearance.
it goes through the story of the old testament leading up to the birth of Jesus
it is family friendly and you can be as creative as you want in making them or just use there
