Christmas is right around the corner, can you believe it? Christmas is my favorite time of year, but it always is a very busy time as well. It’s a time we hurry from store to store shopping for presents, we attend school concerts and parties, but more importantly it’s a time that we hopefully take time to focus on Christ and the real reason for the season. Today, I am sharing a wonderful advent devotional to help you center your Christmas on Christ this year.

Heidi Hillman, from A Lively Hope created this amazing ‘Names of Christ Advent Devotional’. This devotional includes 24 hand drawn ornaments, and corresponding hand-lettered Names of Christ.  Each day of advent, you’ll read a short excerpt of scriptures taken directly from the KJV Bible.  Each short story highlights a different name of Jesus Christ. Heidi has also included discussion questions for each day to help you really dive deep and understand the meaning of each of the names.

The ornaments are GREAT! Heidi has done such a fabulous job drawing each one. My kids are really into drawing and coloring, so these will be such a fun activity for them. PLUS we’ll be learning and focusing on Christ.


The Names of Christ you’ll be studying include:
Prince of Peace
The Lamb of God
Jesus of Nazareth
Light of the World
The Bread of Life
The True Vine
Alpha and Omega
Bright and Morning Star
The Living Water
The Son of David
The Word
King of the Jews
The Good Shepherd
The Carpenter
Only Begotten
The Branch
Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God
Son of the Highest

Once you have your Names of Christ Advent Devotional…PRINT it!

You can print the whole thing or just print the last 8 pages, which are the ornaments.

Every day from December 1-24, read the assigned scripture verses and discuss them. Use the discussion questions in the outline as a guide for in-depth personal study or family conversations about Christ. As you read the scriptures have the children color their own ornament.

When you’re done and the ornaments are all colored, cut them out. Each ornament has two pieces: the name of Christ and the design. Cut the two pieces for the day and glue them together (right sides facing out) with ribbon or string in between to form an ornament. Hang the ornaments in a prominent place to help you focus on the beautiful gift we celebrate in this holy season.

I also thought it would be cute to make a bunting/banner with the ornaments. You could hang it somewhere in your home or string it around the tree! I’ve seen some really cute circle buntings where they sewed circles together…this would be so cute to do something like that!

    We read scriptures at night together as a family. At Christmas time, instead of our usual study we focus on scriptures about the Savior – especially his teachings and miracles. It is a simple but powerful way to keep Christ in Christmas.

    As we set up our Christmas Nativity we read the Christmas story account in Luke 2. We also read it again on Christmas morning before opening presents. It helps us to remember why we are celebrating.

    Both my parents are from Germany so we have adopted many German traditions into my own family. Our favorite is putting our shoes out for (St. Nickolaus) Santa to fill. We put them out on the night of the 5th and wake up to see goodies and an ornament if we have been good, or coal orpotatoes if we have been bad. I will always remember my dad joking about putting out his biggest pair of shoes so he could get the most goodies and he always got potatoes!

    We always read Luke 2 as a family the night before Christmas. We also received an ornament to put on our tree that represented something special about the year.

    My daughter learned a song in primary all about the names of the Savior. It is so beautiful. This would be such a great way to help our children learn and understand more about the Savior’s role in our lives.

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE this! I was looking for scripture advent and this will be the perfect one! THank you so much for creating something so beautiful that my kids will LOVE! They are 9 and 5 and they color ALL THE TIME! Not an understatement! haha

    I love watching Christmas movies each night and drinking hot chocolate. Along with reading from the scriptures and remembering the true meaning of Cheistmas.

    My favorite tradition is getting a family ornament each year – I hang them on a wreath over the fire place instead of on the tree so that we can see them better. Since we are up to 24 ornaments now – last year I had to add another wreath.

    This looks amazing! I try and make sure we slow down in December (while the rest of the world seems to go so fast!) and take time to be together and talk about what really matters. Would love to add this!
