The Days Leading Up to our Savior’s Birth – The Jesse Tree!

It’s almost CHRISTmastime!
11-14 539

Isaiah 11:1: “A shoot shall come out of the stock of Jesse, and a branch shall grow out of his roots.”

My sister-in-love, Robin, is an accomplished communicator and teacher.  She has poured her heart and soul into creating an incredible, heirloom-quality resource available to families for Christmas. The Jesse Tree connects the custom of decorating Christmas trees to the glorious story of God and His amazing plan of redemption all the way from Genesis to the birth of Jesus and beyond.

A Jesse Tree is decorated with ornaments symbolizing the people of the Bible, the prophecies and the events that led up to the time our Savior was born!

A Tradition that Matters

If you end up feeling frustrated at the end of the Christmas season for how little time was spent getting to know the story of Jesus better, HIStory, plan now to use the Advent season as a time of worship and discovery.



Each beautifully handcrafted ornament will become a lasting imprint on the hearts and minds of your children, your family.  Understanding will grow, joy will be increased, and you’ll be helping your family know how to explain the hope we have.

“…in your hearts revere Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. ” 1 Peter 3.15 NIV

The Jesse Tree by Robin

My sister-in-law, Robin has made the Advent season a fun {not to mention super educational} adventure, great learning for the whole family that brings meaning to the Christmas story with symbols and stories from the whole Bible.

First things, first, though:  I am totally ripping off all the images from THIS BLOG:  http://alicia-lafamille.blogspot.com/2011/11/our-christmas-tradition-jesse-tree.html which you will want to go read because this is a mommy with young children who has actually been using the Jesse Tree for a few years and making it a family tradition for Christmas.

Tradition + eternal meaning = important!  And fun!!

Robin has put together a whole box of goodies for Advent.  There is a book called The Jesse Tree.  It has scripture readings each day through Advent and a couple of devotionals to choose from , depending on the age of your children.  But let me just say – every adult who participates will learn. too.  The really fun part is that there is a corresponding ornament for each day’s devotional and you get to see the story of Jesus through God’s dealings with His people all the way from Genesis to the birth of our Savior!

Alicia (who has very groovy taste in music, I might mention) posted these great examples on her blog (along with bite-mark and “kid-scribble” explanations.  You, of course will have to provide those yourself.  They are not included in the set!


You learn.  You hang the ornament on the tree.  And everyday after that, when you see that ornament, you recall the plan of God to share His love with us down through the ages.  Perfect!


I wholly encourage you to get your family one of these keepsake, limited edition sets.  Contact Robin moslander123@gmail.com.  Each set is $85 plus s & h.  Good investment.

THIS YEAR, I am thinking of displaying the whole set for the whole season.

The blogger of My Sweet Savannah (www.mysweetsavannah.blogspot.com) offered this idea last year (a foam-board covered in fabric and framed, I think…it was a screen save…need to find).  I may put a portion of scripture on each card so I may meditate on them all season long.

I will let you see what I end up with.  :-)
