And His Name Shall Be Called....

We are still spending time doing our 25 days until Christmas devotional. Today we learned of God's promise to Abraham, that his descendants would number the stars in the sky. More importantly that the Promised One would come from his family. I reminded the kids how God always keeps His promises. We prayed and thanked God for keeping His promise to send Jesus and even more thankful that we can know Him. Later in the day we talked about all the different names of Jesus. I wrote down just the ones the kids could remember...Savior, King, Lion of Judah, Jesus and the Son of God. I added Emmanuel. Then we made the following craft. It's a Christmas tree that has each name of of Jesus on it. I got the craft from www.daniellesplace.com

The boys showing off the finished project.

Isaiah's on the left, Elijah's on the right.
You can take each layer off to reveal the different names of Jesus.
