Total Christmas Makeover: 31 Devotions to Celebrate with Purpose by Melissa Spoelstra
Total Christmas Makeover: 31 Devotions to Celebrate with Purpose (Abingdon Press, October 2017)
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 opinion: What a perfect book to get ones thought where they should be directed during the holiday season. This delightful book is an easy to read, enjoyable devotion that is perfect to gear up for Christ's birth and not get so caught up in everything else that goes with the holiday season. I love the ideas for activities you can do and ways to make Christmas more meaningful, this book is one you can read over and over again.
I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion.
