Autumn, my favorite season, is upon us, and the cooler temps and colors displayed on limb and leaf will soon usher in the holidays. Thanksgiving next month, and then on its heels, Christmas. Yarn pumpkins and autumn leaf coffee mugs, Christmas lights and tree ornaments fill store shelves and endcaps. And “Jingle bells” and “Deck the Halls” will soon punctuate our shopping experience.
Anyone else craving more than the trimmings? Like me, you might be longing for a deeper, more fulfilling experience this Christmas. A way to settle into the heart of Christmas and add depth to the remembrance and celebration.
I’m so excited about a new book written by my friend and writer-buddy, Dandi Daley Mackall. In Three Wise Women: 40 Devotions Celebrating Advent with Mary, Elizabeth, and Anna, Dandi invites you and I to anticipate, celebrate, and marvel at Jesus’ birth.
In 40 fresh and thought-provoking Bible-based Advent Devotions, bestselling author Dandi Daley Mackall encourages and equips us to journey through the season alongside Mary, Elizabeth, and Anna—three wise women chosen by God to play extraordinary roles in the fulfillment of Scripture through Advent, Christmas, and Epiphany. Steeped in biblical culture and scripture, Three Wise Women invites us to delve deeper into what these amazing, real-life women may have experienced or pondered during the days leading to Christ’s Birth and beyond.
I didn’t wait until December 1st to start reading my copy. Settling into the pages is like taking a deep breath and then another in the company of three women who were so very deeply connected to Jesus. Right away, I purchased gift copies.
Are you ready for an especially meaning-full way to celebrate Christmas this year–on your own or with a group of friends? Three Wise Women is now available through your favorite bookseller.
