Earlier this year, I wrote to you about A Sense of the Resurrection: An Easter Experience for Families (a way to teach your children about Easter and celebrate the Resurrection in memorable ways) and you loved it!
And I think you’ll love Truth in the Tinsel, also by Amanda White.
Do you ever find yourself asking on December 25, “Did we even talk about Jesus at all during the last 24 days?” I think if we’re all honest, we can relate in some way. Santa, gifts, parties, family traditions…it’s so easy to let them all take center stage.
But think about this…
December is one of best times to impress God’s Word on your kids’ hearts. Our whole country turns its attention to Christmas–stores are playing songs of worship to the newborn king, movies are playing on cable that show the real meaning of Christmas and people even decorate their yard with Bible characters!
So why not take advantage of this opportunity to help your kids learn to meditate on and learn the real story of Jesus’ birth?
Truth in the Tinsel will lead you and your children on your own journey through the Christmas story. Each day, you’ll take a few minutes to read part of the Christmas Story directly from the Bible. Then you’ll make a fun ornament craft while you talk about the story together.
At the end, you’ll have 24 mementos from your journey and lots of memories together. Not to mention, your children will have God’s Word hidden in their hearts.
December 1 is just THREE days after Thanksgiving this year. That means it’s not too early to start planning your advent experience.
