In the spirit of Advent and new beginnings, today Amy and I are introducing a fun feature that we are SO excited about…drum roll, please! The Amy and Britta Show is something we are trying out for the month of December, during Advent. But if we like it, and YOU like it, we might keep it up into the new year. 🙂
Here is our first video! Yay!! We had such a blast. I hope you enjoy watching it as much as we enjoyed making it. There are some technical issues that we are still working through, like we would like to do a split screen instead of that teensy box for Amy—her personality is waayyyy too big for that box!

In our video, we talked about the connection between waiting and hope. I would love to hear from you in the comments today—do you see that connection? Between waiting and hoping? How is your first week of Advent going?
And, have you downloaded your Advent Guide? It is called Growing Hope: Celebrating Advent Traditions at Home.
Here is a sample of what you will get in my eBook—this is an activity to remind you about the theme of the week:
When you turn the lights on or off, in your house, remember that our homes should be beacons of light.
You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven (Matthew 5:14-16, ESV).
—Growing Hope: Celebrating Advent Traditions at Home
Every week, there are three activities for YOU to help bring home the truths about Advent. The ideas I have given you are great for both the grownups and the kids in your house. See how God’s Word connects to your daily life!
P.S. In the video, I couldn’t remember the theme for next week 😛 So, here is your reward for reading this far. Next week’s theme is Prepare/Peace.
