Jesse Tree Devotional for Adults

I absolutely LOVE the Jesse Tree Advent tradition. It’s one of my favorite ways to prepare my heart for Christmas. I have been doing it with my family for years, and before that, I used it with my high school students when I taught in a Catholic high school. It is such a great way to encounter the overall story of salvation, from Genesis to Jesus, over a short period of time.

When I started doing the Jesse Tree there were very few resources. Now, there are so many great ones; books, printables, ornament sets, and so much more. But there are almost NO resources written specifically for adults. So, I decided to change that. I originally wrote this series of reflections in 2016. But, over the last few years, I’ve shared the daily devotionals online in various ways.

Last year I was sharing them in my IG stories, but this year I decided to turn it into a book that you can print and work through without going to social media to read it. I am so happy with how it turned out!

What’s included in this Jesse Tree devotional?

I wrote this for the busy adult who wants to do the Jesse Tree in a simple, no-frills format. I believe that the focus should be on Scripture, so the devotional content is short and sweet. You don’t need a tree or fancy ornaments. All you need is the book, a Bible and a pen.

The devotional includes a short history of the Jesse Tree for those who want to learn more about the tradition. After that, each day, the devotional includes:

  • Theme
  • Scripture references
  • Short devotional content
  • Traditional Symbol
  • Reflection questions
  • Space for journaling
  • Beautiful art

Though this devotional is written for adults, it could still be used with upper elementary and older children.

I hope that this resource is a great tool for you to prepare your heart for Jesus this Christmas. If you’d like a free copy of this devotional sign up on the form below and get access!

Happy Advent!
