Spend Advent in the Word of God (with Elizabeth Foss)

My guest this week is Elizabeth Foss, wife, mother, author, and founder of the women’s ministry Take Up and Read.  Join us as we talk about how to immerse ourselves in the Word of God this Advent. 

Elizabeth also shares about the newest journal available from Take Up and Read, O Radiant Dawn: An Advent and Christmas Journal, which focuses on daily Scripture study through the seasons of Advent and Christmas.

We chat about the challenges of busy Advent seasons in family life as well the very real importance of taking time for daily prayer, especially during phases of life that are extra busy. We also discuss some of the ways we can become distracted and discouraged by the things we read and see online and how we can instead focus on real progress in our own homes and hearts.

Fill yourself up before you go out and try to be everything to everyone. If you don’t have Christ within you, what do you have to give others this season?
