The Simple Blessings of Christmas is a hope-filled journey through the days of Advent. It’s a wonderful book that if you are looking to celebrate Advent would fit well into households of faith, as well those who just want to add some joy and wonder to the holidays season.
Let me tell you more about this well made hardcover book.
25 chapers, one for each day up to Christmas. It’s not quite long enough to be a full advent book, but it covers all the days of December up to Christmas day. The Chapters have names such as
- Christmas teachs gratitude
- Christmas encourages us to open our hearts and homes to others
- Christmas challenges us to make our lives matter
- Christmas shows that God is still at work in the world and in our lives
- Christmas promises us new beginnings
- Christmas invites us to worship
I love the set up, the clear point of each chapter highlighted on ornaments or pages reminiscent of wrapping paper. Point on bible verses or quotes from different people, some that I recognized and others were new to me. 🙂
The chapters were short and easy to read. Many including stories to help connect you to the teaching, others filled with questions and challenges to help you think through the joy, wonder and teachings of Christmas.
It’s simply a lovely book to use for personal or family advent readings, or to get as a gift to use next year for the days preceding Christmas.
