Review: Jesse Tree PDF by To Jesus Sincerely

I’ve seen Sara’s Mosaic Jesse Tree for years and I was so delighted when I discovered that she has made it available as a printable set!

Here it is in her shop: Printable Mosaic Jesse Tree

I eagerly printed the templates, wrote the numbers of the ornaments on the back in pencil, punched out the ornaments with a 1 1/2″ hole punch, laminated them and then punched them out again with the same whole punch. I know I can glue gun magnets to the back of them or punch a hole and tie a string tie, but I chose to stick them on the tree on this magnetic white board. Using the white board, I can make use of these adorable Little Drops of Water Saint Magnets and I suspect we might add little notes throughout Advent, written with the dry erase markers.

What they’re saying about Prompt Me to Pray

This little book is another gem in that arsenal! It is both simple in presentation and profound in content.
