Family devotions for Christmas Nov 21, 2006
Reviewed by Shannon Bailes for Reader Views (10/06)
What a wonderful way to share Christmas with your family! This book allows families with younger or older children to experience a myriad of devotions surrounding Christmas. The format of the daily devotions is well laid out so that each and every member of the family can understand the material that is presented. As a musician, I especially enjoyed the devotions about Christmas carols and where they originated from. Some of the carols I have sung for my entire life, but never knew the story behind them. Children will enjoy the devotions about the nativity and what it represents. I think my favorite devotions from the book were the devotions concerning "The Names of the Messiah." At this time of the year, it is good to acknowledge the God and all His wonderful ways. All too often we placed the true meaning of Christmas to the wayside. This little devotional book brings relevance to the sometimes lost elements of Christmas.
As a daily devotional reader, I applaud the way in which this devotional book is laid out - easy to read, and easy to understand. The devotions can be as short, or as lengthy as the family desires. It gives the family a solid structure for a devotional time together for each day of December.
Very shortly this devotional book, "The Experience of Christmas: Family Devotions and Activities to Prepare Hearts," will be in my church library. It is my hope that a family will use it to build a deeper understanding of the Christ child, and a lasting relationship with Him.
