A Storybook for Advent
by Arnold Ytreeide
Jotham's Journey is an incredible family
read for Christmas time. Each night you share a portion of the story with your
family. And each nightly reading leaves you hanging ready for the next night's
passage. Follow Jotham's Journey , a story of a young boy, separated from his
family by his neglect and selfish attitude. This separation leads him on a
journey to find his family. Will he ever find his family again? Hold your
breath when Jotham faces thieves, robbers, and kidnappers. Rejoice in his
encounters with wise men, shepherds, and innkeepers until at last he finds his
way to the Saviour born in Bethlehem.
Jotham's Journey is more than just a nice
storybook for Advent. Sidebars about Advent help readers understand the
historical and spiritual significance of the beautiful Advent/Christmas Season.
Each installment of this easy-to-use Advent devotional includes: A devotional
thought; a prayer and instruction for lighting the Advent Candles along with the
on-going story of Jotham's Journey.
Your Family will be spellbound as you
read this wonderful story and celebrate Advent together.
