Get Ready for Christmas!

Are you dreading the pressures and hustle of the holiday season?

Do you want to find a way to teach your children about the true meaning of Christmas and how we can impact the world around us? Read on to learn about an excellent new book that addresses this very topic!

About The Book:

Give your Christmas a makeover with this practical approach to help your family learn what it means to truly celebrate their Savior.

In the bustle of the Christmas season, it can be easy to get swept up in all of the things to do. But it’s important to pause and remember that our priority should be to spend time celebrating Christ’s birth and not forget to invite Jesus to his own party.

Christmas is far more than a celebration of an event from long ago or a modern holiday centered around shopping. Mindfully take time to listen to how God continues to speak through the Christmas story as the Gospel narratives centered around the birth of Jesus provide encouragement and revelation concerning the love of God and his wisdom for us today.

In Total Christmas Makeover, author and Bible teacher Melissa Spoelstra provides a practical approach for you and your family to turn your attention toward God’s grace day-by-day as you prepare for Christmas. This 31-day devotional presents key scriptures, ideas to implement with each reading, and questions for reflection to guide you in rediscovering rituals, relationship, and rest to connect you more deeply with Christ this holiday season.

My Thoughts:

This book is one that families should read in November, in preparation for the holiday season. Each chapter is short enough to read together, even with little ones. With personal reflection questions, and then a page of ideas for service called A Practical Approach there is a lot to discuss. The chapters are divided into three sections – Ritual, Relationship, and Rest. I love that Total Christmas Makeover gives families a way to focus on what Christmas really means as well as ways to reach out to others during the holiday season. With the commercialization of the holiday season, it is so important for Christian families to stay centered. Let’s be leading the charge back to Christ-centered, family-centered activities and outreach. This is the time of year that Christian families can be the practical and loving hands and feet of God.
