Advent Traditions with Gracie Jagla

Danielle Bean

Our guest this week is children’s book author Gracie Jagla. Gracie is author of God the Father and the Best Day Ever, and the newly released The Night the Saints Saved Christmas.

Snippet from the Show

You may not have the time or the energy to follow through with all of your Advent plans, but something as simple as an Advent wreath can mark the season and absolutely counts as liturgical living.


Shownotes

Gracie shares about how she came up with the creative idea for this book’s story and how we can incorporate stories of the saints in our family Advent traditions. We also discuss how to handle the “Santa dilemma” as Catholic parents, and ways that families can enjoy creativity and imagination while also teaching our kids about the truths of our faith.
