New York Times best-selling author and podcaster Annie F. Downs will launch her first-ever Advent Series on her “That Sounds Fun Podcast” on November 27th.
Sponsored by the CSB Bible, every Monday through Friday during the four weeks of Advent, Downs will lead listeners through a daily devotional leading up to Christmas Day, as well as introductory Advent conversations with Tsh Oxenreider and Father Mike Schmitz, concluding with a Christmas Eve reading featuring Mrs. & Mr. Downs. To enhance the experience, there is also a subscription on Annie’s website which includes a downloadable guidebook featuring 28 days of questions, prompts and prayers to use alongside the podcast, video for each day of the podcast, ad-free versions of the audio, specialized miniBFF episodes, downloadable resources, and so much more. Available for $30, all details and the official sign-up page can be found at anniefdowns.com/advent.
“I cannot wait to observe and celebrate this season with you,” Downs said on her Insagram account recently. “It’s gonna be so rich and full and knowing that God is preparing us for what the next year holds. We need these gifts, y’all. We need hope, peace, joy, and love. And there’s something about us doing this together – makes it even better.”
Desiring for listeners to really immerse themselves in the experience, Downs has also created an Advent Series Website with several ways to do so, including:
– Your very own Advent candle set to light each Sunday of Advent
– A ‘Yes And’ Journal
– An Advent ornament
– Advent page flags that can be used to mark in your Guidebook, journal, or wherever you’d
Father Mike Schmidt and Tsh Oxenreider will be featured guests on “That Sounds Fun” podcast leading up to the series launch to share about the meaning of and prepare listeners for Advent. All regular podcast episodes of “That Sounds Fun” will continue to be free of charge to listeners.
