25 Devotionals by Christian Bloggers.
This FREE Advent series is about searching the Scriptures like the wise men, journeying to the nativity scene and beyond, in order to refresh our hearts in the Gospel before a new year.
“He rules the world with truth and grace
And makes the nations prove
The light of His righteousness
And wonders of His love…”
[from Joy to the World]

THANK YOU! KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK THAT IS WITHIN YOU! JESUS CHRIST OUR PRECIOUS LORD & SAVIOUR! MY SALVATION!
Hello Danielle! Thank you for curating this list! I have a favor to ask: Would it be possible to create a free printable version of all the devotionals? Kind of like a booklet? Or maybe just a “print this article” button on each devo page? I would love to have them printed off to read as part of my Christmas reading. 🙂
