Introducing, The Advent Christmas Planner! The ultimate resource for Catholic moms to plan for Advent, Christmas, Saint feast days, and more. If you like the keep the true meaning of the season in the forefront of your celebrations, and could use some organizational help to make it actually happen, this ebook is for you!
“Lacy @ Catholic Icing has just released an Advent & Christmas planner that is out-of-this-world PERFECT for Catholics. It couldn’t have been any more perfect if I had made it myself. The only thing missing is a meal planning page for the feast days, so I don’t have to recreate the wheel each year. This isn’t a referral link, but it’s SO fabulous, I couldn’t NOT share it. Seriously. worth. every. penny.”
“Thank you so much for putting together your Advent & Christmas planner. I bought it in preparation for this past Christmas and it was such a blessing. It was so great to start some new traditions with my three little ones, and it really did help make our experience of Advent and Christmas much richer. We also loved the liturgical calendar stick-ons and hope to see more!
I also wanted to thank you for the little disclaimer and prayer at the beginning of the planner encouraging moms not to try to do everything, or to do everything perfectly. I try to remember this whenever I feel like I don’t measure up.”
From finding Advent candles to how to pack everything up for next year, this ebook will carry you through the Advent and Christmas seasons- both the religious and the practical aspects of it.
Remember the calendar stick-ons that I posted for living the Liturgical year at home? That was a tiny part of The Advent Christmas Planner. This whole ebook has been designed to help the average mother actually execute living the liturgical year at home during the Advent and Christmas seasons rather than just dreaming, filling Pinterest boards, and then becoming overwhelmed.This ebook was written to help you actually accomplish the things you’ve always wanted to by integrating it into your life.
This ebook integrates all the religious aspects of celebrating Christmas with all the practical stuff us mothers also have to take care of this time of year. From stocking stuffers to Jesse Trees, from Advent Saint celebrations to gift budgeting, from meal planning to Epiphany door blessings- it’s all in one easy place for you. No searching all over the internet, or picking from this book and that book.
The Advent Christmas Planner is part inspirational, part practical, part devotional, and part fun! Designed especially not to overwhelm mothers, this ebook is going to help you plan your own custom set of traditions that can build so that planning for Advent and Christmas gets easier each year.
“Got your Advent planner last year… And am just now really reading it and picking which projects to do during this lovely season.
Firstly — GIRL! Well done! You thought of everything. Cannot even tell you how pleased I am as a homeschooling mom of three with special needs to have this resource. I need all the help I can get catechizing our children as they all have pretty severe language processing disorders and do not understand some even basic concepts and words. Visual is the way to go. And you have been such a help with that.”
I want to be clear that this is not an Advent/Christmas craft book. (I know… I was shocked too.) 😉 However, this ebook is linked up to a series of special pages on my blog that take you to themed pages of crafts and resources for each feast day.
The Advent Christmas Planner ebook includes over 25 printable pages to help you prioritize, schedule, and execute your plans.
The Advent Christmas Planner ebook has specific directions for how to make lists, prioritize, and how choose a reasonable number of traditions to do each year. (In other words, I’m not going to let you bite off more than you can chew.) Every tradition/activity has a “Plan it” box at the bottom of the page that tells you what to put on your calendar and shopping list to make it happen. Pretty helpful for us moms that have had our brains kidnapped by pregnancy, huh?
Ever wondered how to keep Advent fun, and not look like a grinch, while at the same time holding off on Christmas celebrations until the Christmas season actually starts? This ebook will help you do that!
I have a theory that mothers get taken off track by even the smallest of deterrents. For instance, you go to switch your laundry from the washer to the dryer, but when you walk by the laundry room, there is stuff sitting on top of the washer… so you keep on walking. You might not even realize that you walked away, but you did. I’m here to help you remove that pile of stuff, and switch those clothes out before they start to smell like mildew! (Have I officially carried this analogy too far?) Anywho, This ebook will help you ease those deterrents so you can organize your thoughts, prayers, recipes, shopping lists, and ideas. This way, you can actually accomplish your goals. Whether you’re brand new to celebrating the liturgical year or an old hat, there’s something in this ebook for you.
“I am so excited about this book! Thanks for helping me keep organized during the Advent and Christmas season!”~Sara R.
All the activities in this book are organized in the order of which they happen, and are color coordinated to distinguish between liturgical seasons. Although you will find some of your Catholic Icing favorites in this ebook, it is certainly more than a compilation of articles from this site. While individual internet posts can be useful, they always miss the organization of a real book, and the overarching ideas that go across the seasons. It really brings me joy to see everything so organized. Although it is rewarding to post ideas online, it never seems to be as navigable as I want it to be for you. Plus, it’s actually mostly new content.
I also went to great lengths to track down adorable easy-to-implement family traditions (things like the Baby Jesus hunt). There is something I love so much about small things like this that become family favorites and take hardly any prep time! I think of these little additions as the “gems” of this ebook. 🙂
“You are amazing! This is just what I need.Thank you for sharing your creativity at a small price,So everyone can participate.”~Jennifer D.
I’m the most excited about this book because I am excited to actually use it myself this year. You see, I’m a mother, just like you, and I have plenty of things that slip between the cracks in my life, just like you do. Hopefully, I’ll get to everything that is truly important to me during these seasons this year. I know this book is going to help me do that! From beginning St. Andrew’s Christmas novena on November 30 all the way through Candlemas on February 2, this ebook quite a stretch of resources.
The Advent Christmas Planner costs $12. That is a great value for this 110 page resource! The truth is, I really want mothers to have it and use it, and I don’t want price to be a deterrent. (I mean, you know how I feel about deterrents, right?) 😉
“Packed with ideas and activities, this is the perfect tool to help you make the most of the liturgical seasons of Advent and Christmas”
