Advent Words 2018 A-Z Coming Soon!

Our Advent Words challenge is just two days away! Are you ready to join us? Advent Words combines  two of my top passions in life: Bible study and art. During a Words Challenge participants are provided with a daily Bible study/devotional for each word in the challenge. You are then encouraged to respond creatively with any creative practice they choose -art journaling, collage, photography, poetry, digital art, scrapbooking, calligraphy - whatever way you choose to interpret the word and Bible study creatively.

The Advent Words challenge is a great way to slow down and pause in a season of busyness. Take time daily to focus on faith and God in the Advent and Christmas season. Here's how you can join us:
  • The daily Bible study devotions, along with how I responded creatively, will be posted on this blog each day beginning on November 30. You can follow this blog by email or there will be daily links to the posts in the Words Challenge Facebook group
  • Respond with whatever creative practice you choose: art journaling, mixed media art, scrapbook, photography, digital art, poetry, creative writing, calligraphy - any way you choose! As you take in the Scripture and devotions into your heart and mind, let it sink even deeper as you practice creatively with your hands.
  • Join the Words Challenge Facebook group where you can share your art and ideas and join the conversation through the Advent season and beyond.  I host a number of Words Challenges throughout the year. Join here:
  • If you belong to the Everyday Journal group that I co-lead with Valerie Sjodin and Bernice Hopper, Advent Words will be our theme for December.
  • Share on Instagram and other social media with the hashtag #adventwords2018.
  • In the days before the Advent season begins reflect and prepare: choose the creative form you will use for your daily practice. Make a journal if that fits your creative form.You can see my journal in this post.
