Jesse Tree Advent Devotional Resources



Have you heard about the Jesse Tree? This Advent Devotional has been around for a while, but I have just recently found this and I am looking forward to introducing my kids to it this year!

So, what is the Jesse Tree? First you need to know who Jesse was. He was the father of King David from the Old Testament. When looking at the genealogy of Jesus, Jesse is usually looked at as the first person. The Jesse Tree is therefore Jesus’ family tree! During Advent, we will be making our own tree and learning more about Jesus.

There are many different resources to help us with this! Some are free, others have a fee to go with them. I can’t wait to share what I have found with you today! (Please remember that some of these are from previous years. This year Advent Day 1 is November 30th. All you need to do is just change the dates for this year.)

There are numerous books if you wanted to do an Amazon search. I have added two of them to my Kindle Unlimited library (I love this library!).

  1. We are absolutely doing a Jesse Tree for Advent and I couldn't be more excited!! Since my husband and I were engaged we've been talking about how to keep Jesus as the center of Christmas, then our son was born on the first Sunday of Advent!

    So our reading will be from the book Bible Characters for Advent, they're all online for free too at along with printables, coloring ornaments, DIY ornament ideas. 

    My husband and I spend the year between when my son was born and his first Christmas working on the book. But this year will be the best because our son, barely two, is finally going to be old enough to appreciate the Jesse Tree!! (at least a little bit)

    I've already started doing the reading with him, just because our book has been out and it has been absolutely wonderful! I feel like this is going to be a great Advent and will probablly get better every year 🙂

    I love how you're encourging us to share our stories our making a Jesse Tree, I really hope you get more comments. It is always fun to see other moms ideas
