Advent Devotions. No matter whether your family does daily devotions or not, make it your Christian New Year's resolution to take some time out of the day to talk with your family about the coming of Christ. Maybe choose to focus on Mary's Song in Luke 1:46-55 or make a Jesse Tree with your family - it's a craft and a devotional! (Instructions can be found here: http://www.crivoice.org/jesse.html.)
