  • Advent Calendar Online

    Many families like to find ways to enjoy the build up to Christmas. One of these ways is to use an Advent Calendar that counts up the 24 days before Christmas. I remember as a child opening a new window on a paper version to reveal what was behind it. There was great excitement and anticipation.

    Now there is an Advent Calendar on the internet that can help you build the excitement and joy of Christmas. You can click on the Happyland Advent Calendar link from

    You’ll find a new surprise under each star and each day a new star will be available to be opened. Some stars will have a video clip, others a recipe, and others an activity or game. You can even enter your email address so that we can send you reminders of the next star to open.

    It’s not too late to join in the fun so go to and enjoy the build up to Christmas.

  • Joy Beyond Shattered Dreams

  • Time Matters

So how do we deal with that? On Face to Face this week Mark Doecke will be talking about time, and there is an offer of a free booklet about managing time better. Click here to listen now.
