ADVENT is here!  Most families are familiar with the Advent Wreath, a wonderful Advent tradition.

Here is another - The Jesse Tree.

The Jesse Tree focuses on those who came before Jesus...his "faith-family tree".    Since we do quite a bit with the Old Testaments stories in grades 3, 4 and 6 this might be a meaningful idea for your family. 

You can do the Jesse Tree with an actual "tree"; you can even put the symbols on your Christmas Tree.  Or, you can do something else (how about sticking them on the fridge?)

Here is a wonderful site with further information and patterns for the Jesse Tree symbols:


  1. Hey there! Quick question that's totally off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My web site looks weird when browsing from my iphone4. I'm trying to find a template
    or plugin that might be able to correct this problem. If you
    have any suggestions, please share. Cheers!

  2. Searching I noticed your site bookmarked as: Blogger:
    OBJECTIVES AND HOMEWORK. Now I am assuming you bookmarked it yourself and wanted to ask
    if social bookmarking gets you a large amount of targeted traffic?
    I've been contemplating doing some social bookmarking for a few of my sites but wasn't sure if
    it would produce any positive results. Appreciate it.

  3. Heya! It appears as though we both have a interest
    for the same thing. Your blog, "Blogger: OBJECTIVES AND HOMEWORK" and mine are very similar.
    Have you ever thought about authoring a guest article for a similar website?
    It will definitely help gain publicity to
    your blog (my site recieves a lot of traffic). If you are interested, contact me
    at: Thank you

  4. Hi there! Do you know if they make any plugins to
    safeguard against hackers? I'm kinda paranoid about losing everything I've
    worked hard on. Any tips?
