Preparing for Advent

With Advent’s arrival this Sunday, I’ve been doing some thinking about how I can be more intentional this Advent season.

Anticipating.
Hoping.
Seeking.
Trusting.
Believing. 

I want to intentionally read the Word, pray, slow down, rest, and invest in quality time with my friends and family. I’m planning to spend some time reading in Isaiah (one of my favorite books of the Bible). I find so much beautiful hope woven into the verses found in Isaiah. I’ll also be participating in the #SheReadsTruth Advent plan, and I’m looking forward to the ways in which that will impact my heart and my hope this season.

A few notes about what’s coming up this Christmas season on A Place to Dwell:

*I’ll be kicking off a new creative series on Monday. I can’t wait to share some super inspiring writers, artists, bloggers, and designers with you all!

*And a bit of housekeeping: during the weeks of Christmas and New Year’s, I won’t be blogging much, but I’ll still have lots of good content to share with you. I’ll be sharing some of my favorite posts from the past — posts that encourage you to embrace and celebrate your story and posts that get you inspired and excited for the year ahead!

I’m looking forward to sharing the Advent season with you all — getting inspired, hopeful, and excited for Christmas and the year to come.
