As far as my own personal thoughts on the kit, I am super inspired. I love that it is so versatile and is packed with content and options on how to approach it. It really is a choose your own adventure and in the busy holiday season I think this is even more important. The first way you can dive into this advent season and remembering the reason for the season using this kit is with the weekly devotionals. They are themed in line with the traditional advent weeks. Hope, Peace, Joy and Love; or God’s people, the Old Testament Prophets, John the Baptist and Mary. In my home we light the candles on the advent wreath and focus on these words so I love that as I study God’s Word on my own I can use what I am learning to lead and inspire my family through Advent as well. And beyond that the daily prompt cards are divided into the same four weekly themes so you’ll do several days on each topic if you choose to use the prompt cards. Of course they will also align beautifully to do these together and adding them to the 100 Days of Grace and Gratitude book will add even more depth.
The creative elements are so fun. or any other format of your choosing. These pop apart tabs and wordfetti incorporate key words and colors and make it so easy to mark what you are learning whether you are building those altars of remembrance in a notebook, the 100 Days of Grace and Gratitude Book an Illustrating Bible or any other format of your choosing. I always tab and date my entries so having the coordinating pieces just tickles that fancy.
The buffalo print washi and clear stamps are so festive and yet so versatile. The key words of HOPE, JOY, LOVE, and PEACE are stamps I’ll use throughout the year, especially with that bold font. Plus can you even… the little ever green tree, stars hanging from the moon, that wreath… oh my! I’ll use these in so many fun places. If fact I hosted a pre-holiday vision night with some folks from my church last night and we had a popcorn bar where people could top their popcorn in so many fun ways and the little brown lunch bags were dressed up just perfectly by that sweet wreath stamp from the kit, it coordinated with our invitation so well I just couldn’t resist that special touch.
And these cardstock stickers! I am a huge sticker fan and find that no page feels complete without a sticker… or many! It just adds such a polished look and helps make many entries like I’ll be doing this month look cohesive. I love when I have completed a series of 30 plus days in my Bible and I can flip back through and pick out the entries so easily because the visual elements are all coordinating.
An extra bonus again this month is a digital file that allows you so much flexibility and the ability to extend this kit so far! With days 31-55 in “100 Days of Grace and Gratitude” this gives us so much extra to work with. It might be my favorite element as I have printed it on plain paper, cardstock, clear sticker paper and white sticker paper on months past.
