Now, I suppose some of you will wonder to yourselves...WHAT is a Jesse Tree? The best way to explain it is it is a set of bare branches used to hang ornaments from that depict the story of Creation through the birth of Jesus, our Savior! Each day we will read a passage from the Bible and participate in a family devotional. That is the message of Christmas I want my children to learn; that there is NO GREATER gift than that of the gift of JESUS CHRIST, our LORD and SAVIOR!!!
Would you like to learn more about Jesse Trees and how to create one for your home? Here are some resources that I pulled from to create our Jesse Tree and to learn more about the tradition. I hope that you will enjoy using them with your family.
