A Simple Advent Journey (back) To Jesus {for Moms} from Clarissa West

The foundation of A Simple Advent Journey is a daily scripture reading with biblical word studies. These are as simple—or as in-depth—as you want them to be.

Extra activities are optional. They are only there for you to explore if you feel inspired to do so.

PDF downloadable file with printables. Single person/household use, reprint every year!
