The Advent Project


A huge thanks to my friend and fellow podcaster Avery of the Live Out Loud Podcast for sharing this awesome Advent video.  Avery and her family created the huge yard-sized Advent wreath you see in the video.  I find her work so inspirational and thought you might enjoy seeing this special creation.  In the video, you’ll see Avery, her family and her community celebrating the beginning of Advent by blessing and lighting the family Adent wreath.
