She suggests you take the different names of Jesus, along with a scripture reference and put them on paper (each on it's own slip). One for each day between now and Christmas. She has a list of 100 in her book or she also has a list of about 20 on her blog or she said you can google "Names of God". Then put them in a container (she used a beautifully wrapped Christmas box). Then each day, draw out one paper together as a family and read the name and the scripture and take a few moments to discuss how that particular characteristic of God impacts us.

I think this is a great idea to help our family keep a little more focused on Jesus this season.
