We try to have daily scripture reading as a family year round, so scriptures will definitely alway be part of it....maybe a specific scripture chain or something? Any ideas???
get a copy of "Wonderful Counselor" by Larry Libby & Steve Halliday.
It is a devotional for 2 weeks leading up to Christmas and really inspirational. A beautiful read that will keep you focused on Jesus.
Love your idea of the ornaments!
