The Jesse Tree Tradition


Many of you already know that the Jesse Tree is one of my favorite Christmas traditions. It is beautiful, simple, and all about Christ.

The Jesse Tree is an advent activity that tells a scriptural and visual story. It’s the story of God’s faithfulness, His plan of redemption, and salvation for all who believe on Jesus.

Getting started with the Jesse Tree traditions for advent this Christmas!

    When my children were small I started this tradition as a daily Bible lesson and their art. My daughter now has 6 children of her own and home schools them. She is an awesome daughter for many reasons and I would love to give these to her for her children. God bless. Sharon

    I would like to win the multi-color one, but they are all so pretty. I think my six year old son would like the multicolor one the best though. Thanks for offering this great giveaway.

  37. Pastor Paully

    We started this tradition last year, but I didn’t have time to compile or create all the ornaments that we needed. I would really love to use these beautiful ornaments this year!

  38. Kandi

    I like the multi-colored set. I think my family has a new tradition to start this year. Thank you! I also like the 12 days of christmas set they have. Brings new light to the christmas carol. Love your blog by the way 🙂

  39. A Learning Journey

    I would absolutely LOVE to win the Deep Blue Rustic Wooden Jesse Tree set. My daughter asked if she could set-up her own Christmas tree this year. I told her yes of course! I think she would be tickled pink if we won these ornaments for her tree. This is one of our favorite traditions too. We do a Jesse Tree every year, but our ornaments are printed paper that are looking pretty shaggy after three moves and repeated use over the years. This particular set also matches our Christmas decor for the season. Thank you for the chance to win this amazing treasure. There were so many wonderful choices in the shop.

  40. Becky Will

    It looks like it would be a neat new tradition to add to our Christmas. I like the multicolored tile ones.
