Heart of Christmas Advent Devotional for Kids Day 16!!!


We have come to the end of our journey into the Heart of God and the Heart of Christmas! Thank you for joining us on this journey! Merry Christmas!

NOTE: These devotional will mainly be verses and questions. My goal is to ensure that my children understand the meaning of the verse and it how it relates to the true celebration of Christmas. I will listen to their response and lead our discussion based on their thoughts, so in reality the questions may change. I will base my responses on their level of understanding of the verse we are discussing. We will then hang the ornament depicted each day on our special little tree. 

See my original post detailing the inspiration behind my Heart of Christmas Devotional HERE!

Day 16 – The Shepherds' Journey

Today's Verse:

"And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us. And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger. And when they had seen it, they made known abroad the saying which was told them concerning this child. And all they that heard it wondered at those things which were told them by the shepherds. But Mary kept all these things, and pondered them in her heart. And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things that they had heard and seen, as it was told unto them."
(Luke 2:15-20, KJV)

We have come to the last day of our Heart of Christmas Advent Devotional. 

What happens in this passage?

What would you have done once the angels left?

Why do we celebrate Christmas?

Memory Verse 


(As a four year old, Grace will have two verses or parts of a verse to work on each week. Anthony will have larger sections to memorize because he is nine and memorizes verses at a rapid pace. NOTE: I learned this passage in the KJV which is not the usual version I memorize in now, but it will be forever embedded in my heart in KJV. Plus, for this particular passage, KJV has such a lovely poetic flow to it, thus my children will learn it in KJV as well.)

Let's practice our verses again!

Grace – “And suddenly, there was with the angel a multitude of heavenly host, praising God and saying "Glory to God in the highest, peace on earth, good will to men.” (Luke 2:13-14)

Anthony – I have given him a print out of the whole passage and we will see how far we get. ;)

Blessings this Christmas Season,
