Frequently Asked Questions:
Do you have a sample to see what the devotion is like?
Yes! Amazon has a sample of Countdown to Christmas here.
What ages can Countdown to Christmas be used with?
Countdown to Christmas is written to be used in a family with children of multiple ages. This devotional will engage your preschoolers while giving your teens (and parents!) Biblical insight to prepare all hearts for Christmas. Countdown to Christmas is a family devotional — it’s the book I wrote for my own family with seven children ranging from four- to 19-years old.
What kind of Nativity set can be used with this book?
Most standard nativity sets will work with your Christmas countdown. I like to have one kid-friendly manger scene completely accessible to my kids. They can re-enact the story and rearrange it throughout the season. We’ve used a hand-made olive wood set, a Playmobil® manger set (super popular with my boys) and a beautiful resin set.
What kind of time commitment does this involve?
Look, I’m a single mom of 7. This book was written to be open-and-go while providing rich content. The Bible verses are printed in the book, though you can read them from your own family Bible. Application questions are woven into each devotion to help engage young minds. It takes our family 15 minutes for 15 days or nights before Christmas. If you miss a day, just double up the next day.
Each Countdown to Christmas devotional includes a familiar Christmas carol or hymn that ties in with the lesson and a prayer.
May Countdown to Christmas becomes a beautiful tradition for your family to teach the meaning of Christmas and make treasured memories together.
