Every year I’m on the lookout for family and church Advent materials that are engaging and easy to use. This year I found An Illustrated Advent and everyone is loving it! Every week several families comment on how they are using the packets at home and how much they love them! The large coloring posters are being used in Sunday school classes and also at the art table in the sanctuary by all ages. Can’t wait for the Lent materials. Thanks!

Within moments of setting out the posters, I had people clamoring to do some coloring–young & young at heart, men & women, boys & girls. When I asked a few people to pick it up to put down another poster, I hear groans of “But it’s not done yet!” The posters were beautiful and well designed, and the customer service stuck through some pretty tedious mailing issues. I can’t wait for the next few weeks of coloring through Advent!

We handed out your Coloring in series weekly, to the whole congregation as a wonderful mindfulness exercise to spiritually access the season of Advent. Some, did a little each day, others used them when stressed. All exploded with color in the same way that our Southern Hemisphere location explodes with color this time of the year. Many thanks.

I’m always looking for engaging projects that will give my two busy body kids something to focus their energy and creativity on. These large advent posters have done just that and I’m not going to lie– this momma had fun getting in on the action to. I highly recommend buying a set as a family project and enjoying the quality time together and talking about the message behind each piece.

We are having a great time here in Mexicali with our brothers and sisters. Sometimes there is a language barrier but with coloring these pictures the differences are minimized. Kids, adults, everyone knew exactly what to do and could come and go as they pleased. This was a great resource for our team.
