A Better Than Anything Christmas is the second Advent devotional for families from Barbara Reaoch, author of the very popular A Jesus Christmas.

These daily devotions in the Gospels give a thorough investigation of why Jesus came. In the lead-up to Christmas, families will explore 25 reasons why Jesus came, and they will see that what Jesus gives us is better than anything else we could wish for.

Each day there is a passage to read together, questions to think about, an explanation, and a prayer. There are also age-appropriate application questions, some for younger children and some for older children, as well as journalling space so that each family member can write or draw their own response to what God has shown them.

So why not set aside a little time each day in the run up to Christmas to look at God's word together with this inspiring and innovative resource?

"The Perfect Advent Book for Families"

Tim Elmore, Dec. 1, 2020

Advent is all about preparing ourselves for the worship that comes with Christmas. This book is a perfect tool for that. It gives a daily devotion that can be completed within the attention span of your child.... continue reading


"a unique book that can inspire everyone in the family"

Monica Huyser, Oct. 25, 2020

One of the neat things that I see about A Better Than Anything Christmas is that it is a rather flexible book designed to fit what will work best for your family with some small adjustments. The author encourages the family leader to pray and prepare their heart before leading the rest of the family. I think that is wonderful advice. I was impressed with this relatively inexpensive paperback advent book as I think it would make for some fun family activities and good discussions... continue reading

"Simple family devotional to help you see and enjoy Jesus"

Chelsea Stanley, Dec. 20, 2020

I have three boys, ages 7, 6, and 4, and we’ve all enjoyed going through Barbara Reaoch’s A Better than Anything Christmas together this advent season. Each morning, we sit around the breakfast table and read the short Bible passage and devotional together. Then we answer the questions Reaoch provides to help us explore and engage with the biblical text.... continue reading

This was recommended to us on the ‘Faith in Kids’ podcast and it has been good this advent for our 10yo, 8yo and 5yo with their advent chocolate. Would highly recommend!

“Great for Grandparents”

A Better Than Anything Christmas is a great resource for grandparents to share with their socially distanced grandchildren in a COVID 19 pandemic world. A copy for you, a copy sent to them, and a few minutes on facetime through the Advent Season to share together. Joy will fill your heart and plant truth into the hearts of your grandchildren. And the bonus is you too will be blessed by reading these short passages that simply point to God's character on display in Jesus.

“Single Best Christmas Resource For Families”

There aren't enough words to describe the blessing of this little devotional for our family.
If you want to keep Christmas about Jesus, do yourself a favor and grab this book today! Barbara Reaoch's latest devotional goes beyond the Christmas story to take a deep look at the doctrine of Christ. Each day of December has it's own 4 part devotion.
Explore: A short Scripture reading
Explain: A very concise and thought provoking paragraph written in language geared to children and their understanding of Jesus.
Engage: A series of questions (some for younger and some for older kids) to open up family conversation.
Enter In: Prayer and a family journaling page. (Our kids took turns being the one to draw inside the book and the other kids drew on a photocopy of that page.)

Our kids know the Christmas story well but this devotion took us MUCH deeper. We had so many A HA moments of understanding. We love this book and know you will too! Highly, highly recommend!
