“Grateful for this Resource”
My wife and I recently decided to start doing daily family devotions with our four year-old (as a sort of graduation from storybook Bibles), and thought that the Christmas season would be a perfect time to begin. We wanted something that would present the Word and point to Jesus, rather than the type of devotional that provides a scriptural snippet followed by four paragraphs of reflection. The sample pages of <i>A Jesus Christmas</i> looked promising, so we decided to give it a try. Well, I can't tell you how glad I am that we did! Our daughter engaged in the discussion questions night after night, and loved the journaling/doodling pages. Halfway through the book, she told my wife that she wanted Jesus in her heart, and they prayed for that together (naturally, on the one evening of the week when I'm out of the house, haha). At the very end of the devotional, families are prompted to write down what they've learned about Jesus, and she said, "That Jesus is King, and he gives us life!" To Mrs. Reaoch and the folks at The Good Book Co., thank you for making this available. The Seders family has been blessed by it!
Note: for the selections of Scripture, our family turned the NIrV. The NLT would also be suitable. Whatever you choose, the important thing is that you engage the Word together!
