ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Maggie Philpot wrote her first children’s story when she was in middle school (a story about an egg named Eggbert) and she has been dreaming up stories ever since. She lives in Fort Worth with her spectacular husband (whom she calls Husband), her two precocious children, and a rather ridiculous dog, Tucker. She is passionate about anything and anyone who attempts to make beauty, order, and meaning in this crazy world. The simple act of writing is one way to do just that.

This year available in a deluxe hardback edition with full-color illustrations, offering you the opportunity to bring home a truly heirloom-quality book to be a part of your holiday traditions!
This book was beautifully done.
I for one have never done an Advent calendar apart from what my church does. But now I will for years to come with this book! I LOVED the lyrical storytelling, and how Maggie Philpot told the story so eloquently. It was easy to engage with and each day is a new piece of the story unfolding.
The book itself is a work of art. Velvet cover (Check out my Instagram post for a closer look at the details), gilded edges, thick paper…and that artwork, sigh. Someone put a lot of time and effort into making this book have a lasting impression.
Overall, God is Coming was an engaging and delightful Advent calendar. One that I will be rereading starting December 1st with my family, and I think it will become a family tradition to end the day with.
*I volunteered to read this book in return for my honest feedback. The thoughts and opinions expressed within are my own.
