I try to believe like I believed when I was five, when your heart tells you everything you need to know. — Lucy Liu

Remember what it was like to be a kid and play a game with a friend.

    I keep thinking about this entry. When I was a little girl, I had such anticipation for Christmas. Not the gifts, but of the birth of Baby Jesus – as only a second grader could. As I got older, I missed the anticipation. Sometimes, before we went to bed, I would say to my younger sister, “Let’s close our eyes and pretend that tomorrow is Christmas!” (Even in July.) She thought I was nuts. I couldn’t explain the “anticipation.” I still can’t, and I still miss it.

    Wait, so you mean that after entering the first day we can’t enter again? Whoops.

  • Phil Fox Rose

    The contest software does not allow multiple entries. If you’ve already entered. the enter option goes away. We are looking into options. Sorry for the confusion.

  • Amy

    I though you only had to fill out an entry form once…..If not then I do not see where to fill in my information either

  • Tom

    I agree with Daniel. I do not see a entry form.

  • Daniel

    Melissa- still do not see a place to put my information?

  • Laurie Walsh

    LOVE this… will use it in group tonight at a rehab for young addicts in Phx!

  • Robin Gerke

    Great reminder and explanation about advent. Thanks.

    Children have neither a past nor a future. Thus they enjoy the present, which seldom happens to us.

    Daniel – I think it’s in the box up above where you may see a dark green box. Possibly scroll down and there will be a place to put your information? Try it, you never know…

  • Daniel

    How do you enter the contest? I just see an option to “invite friends.”

    Yesterday, I was able to enter successfully but today I do NOT see an option to enter. How can I enter today’s Advent Daily Jolt Calendar?

    Jesus said “Amen, I say to you, whoever does not accept the kingdom of God like a child will not enter it.” (Mark 10:15) I don’t want to grow up . . . I’m a childlike faith kid!
