Segment 1 – Intro and News


Segment 2 & 3 – The Jesse Tree for Families
The Jesse Tree for Families presents a lovely, achievable way to celebrate the liturgical season of Advent with your children. Each day focuses on a specific person from Jesus’ family tree with a meditation perfect for the whole family and a beautifully illustrated portrait, plus an ornament to hang on your family’s Jesse tree. Conversation starters and resources for parents are included, with the goal of helping your family grow in faith so that, together, you can prepare for the arrival of Christmas.”

Colleen Pressprich is former missionary and Montessori teacher who uses all of the lessons learned in the mission field and the classroom to live her dream of homeschooling and ministering in the Domestic Church.
