We have an elf that we adore. Without naming names, it is not the creepy one that is all over Pinterest. Ours is the original elf that visits kids. We try to use it to teach lessons, but there is a problem. It is still about Santa and gifts. The Mr and I have been looking for something that would focus more on the true meaning of Christmas- Jesus Christ. We will continue with our elf, but we have something to add this year that will put the focus on Jesus- the best gift ever given.
The Shepherd’s Treasure is a new, interactive family tradition that helps children find the TRUE meaning of Christmas! On the first day of December, your Shepherd will appear and your family adventure will begin! Your Shepherd will travel by night throughout the month in search of Jesus. Each morning, your children will find him in a different place (and maybe even doing a different activity) in your home. The Shepherd’s Treasure Advent Cards correspond with fun activities the Shepherd can do throughout the month. Each card features a Bible verse and message from the Shepherd! Little ones will follow behind their Shepherd along his journey. Then, on Christmas morning, your children will find their Shepherd kneeling before the greatest Treasure of all time: Jesus! The search doesn’t stop there though! My prayer is that this fun treasure hunt will result in a more lasting search to find Jesus every day!
“You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.” -Jeremiah 29:13 (NIV)
The Shepherd's Treasure has found a home with us and we couldn't be more thrilled.
