Publishers Description
"
The ADVENTure of Christmas "is a guide for moms concerned that their children are losing sight of Jesus in the midst of the distractions the holiday season brings. Lisa Whelchel was such a mom, but instead of abandoning the traditions of Christmas she rediscovered their original meanings, which were intended to remind people of God's unfathomable gift. Hanging lights on the house, wrapping gifts, and decorating the tree have become opportunities to teach her children about how they relate to Jesus' birth. With "The ADVENTure of Christmas, "mothers can redeem what's been lost from the very symbols that are gentle reminders of the true meaning of Christmas.
Have you discovered that Jesus sometimes gets lost in the middle of the hustle and bustle of His birthday party? Would you like to be able to keep your children's focus on Jesus and also join them in the wonder of the celebration?
For each of the twenty-four days preceding Christmas, "The ADVENTure of Christmas" serves as a fun and handy guide that describes the significance behind your favorite traditions. Hanging lights on the house, wrapping gifts, and decorating the tree will become opportunities to share how these customs relate to Jesus' birth. "The ADVENTure of Christmas" recaptures the true meaning of this beloved season, giving reasons to celebrate for years to come.
Story Behind the Book
Feeling like Jesus had gotten lost in the frenzy of the holiday season, I asked the Lord to show me what I could do to teach my children the true meaning of Christmas. I was caught off-guard when He simply replied, "Don't do anything differently. Look in the middle of the celebration and you will find Me." He was right. There was no need to orchestrate moments to pontificate about "the commercialization of Christmas." Instead, Jesus is beckoning us to come to the party and bring the kids. In doing so, we run into Him at the mall, the movies, even at school. He hides in the lights, the carols, and the cards. He is there when we dress the evergreen tree, when Dad dresses up in a red suit, and even when we eat turkey and dressing

Reviews - What do customers think about The Adventure of Christmas: Helping Children Find Jesus in Our Holiday Traditions?

Not what I expected, either  Nov 28, 2008
This book does not have the depth I was hoping for. I like the idea of realizing that God can be find wherever you look for him. But, this book didn't live up to my expectations. The stories were a little trite for me.
 
Will Use This For Many Years   Jan 19, 2008
This book was recommended by a friend, and I bought me one and another friend one after viewing it. We love it!!! It teaches the biblical meaning behind a lot of our traditions and gives ideas for creating traditions with your kids. Love it!
 
disappointed  Jan 12, 2008
I have Lisa's book called Creative Correction and love it so I was excited about a book of ideas for Christmas but I was very disappointed. It was a short book and didn't have many ideas. It is more a history book of Christmas than anything.
 
Great Book about Christmas  Dec 30, 2007
This is a great book to explain to children the Christian foundations of Christmas and Christmas traditions.
 
Loved this book!  Dec 17, 2007
Great book! I really love the details she puts into each day of advent and the recipes! It helps you see the bigger picture and is really a type of guide to help you get your children into the 'real' meaning of Christmas.
