Description from Life Way:
The yearly Advent season provides an opportunity for the Church to pause and reflect on the true meaning of Christmas, namely, the incarnation of the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. In preparation for Christmas, LifeWay Christian Resources has released a free devotional app that follows the Advent calendar called The Expected One. The Expected One content was developed by Scott James, an elder at the Church at Brook Hills in Birmingham, AL .

How To Use It:
The Expected One is a devotional designed to unite families and foster spiritual conversations about Christ and the significance of His coming. Tracing the promise of a Messiah through the Old Testament stories and the message of the prophets, The Expected One stirs up a sense of anticipation for families who seek to focus their attention and affection on Christ during the holiday season. It includes some suggested songs to play during your devotional time, as well as a few great games that will help engage your children, including puzzles, coloring sheets and flash cards.

The app is .99 in your app store.
