Help focus your family on what really matters at Christmastime
If you ask kids what Christmas is about, you’ll get a variety of answers. Presents, decorating, presents, Santa Claus, presents, carols . . . presents. Few will say anything about Christ. How would your kids answer that question?
In a culture obsessed with material things, it can be difficult to help our kids understand and celebrate the true meaning of the Christmas season. In Celebrating Advent, author Ann Hibbard has created a way for parents to set aside a daily time during Advent to talk with their kids about the spiritual meaning of the season.
Learn practical steps you can take to make Christmas a more meaningful, happy experience for your family. Inspiring and creative family devotions provide a moment of peace and reflection for each evening of Advent, while fun and inexpensive project ideas help you focus your kids’ attention on what really matters at Christmas: Christ.
It’s that time of year again: preparing for Christmas when it’s only November 1st.
The emphasis of this book is on putting Christ in the center of a family’s preparations for Christmas. This is great, because Jesus truly is the reason for the season.
Jesus came to the earth to become one of us so that He could die for us, redeem us, and reconcile us to God the Father through faith in Him.
