About this title


The Bible readings (one for each day of Advent) of the Jesse Tree tell the story of Jesus' family tree and trace the history of God's people from the creation of Man in the Garden of Eden, the Great Flood, Moses and the Burning Bush, Joseph and his coat of many colors, Elijah, Isaiah, Samuel and David, to the Incarnation. A brief explanation of each Bible story and meditation offer the opportunity to explore - as a family - the Bible readings, God's plan for His people and how we can prepare for the great gift of Christmas. Families can make their own Jesse tree of wood dowels drilled and glued together into a tree shape, rough sticks lashed together, a banner, wall hanging or even a large poster. The whole family can draw and color the daily icons on cardboard circles, wooden disks, cloth circles or small jar lids, whatever your imagination, talent and skill can come up with! This little book offers inspiration and suggestions for a family Jesse Tree, with the hope that you will make it your own. There's no "right way" to make a Jesse Tree. There's no "right way" to do the Jesse Tree. But there is your family's way to make your Jesse Tree. Have a blessed Advent!

About the Author:

Catherine Fournier, wife, convert to the Faith and mother of six, has been writing and speaking about the Catholic culture of the home for 25 years. She is the co-founder of, the largest Catholic family web site on the Internet and author of the popular "In the Domestic Church" family resource series. Her work has appeared in Canticle magazine, the Nazareth Journal, Catholic Parent and others. Dynamic, talented and knowledgeable, Catherine draws on the writings of Pope John Paul II, especially Familiaris Consortio and the Theology of the Body, her experience as a youth and adult educator and - last but not least - the raising and educating of her six children in the Faith to create effective and inspiring faith resources for families. “As Christ is the Incarnation, our Catholic faith is incarnational,” explains Catherine. “It is brought to life, incarnated, both through and in our daily lives. By this I don’t mean our homes should become church-like, I mean we should be aware that family life has a larger purpose and dimension than we may realize in the midst of daily life.”
