Explore God's amazing plan for Christmas with this family devotional for Advent.

Right from the beginning, the serpent lied to Adam and Eve in the garden of Eden – and he has been lying ever since. But right from the beginning, God told us his amazing plan to send Jesus.

Each of the 25 readings looks at one of the serpent's lies from Genesis 3, and then shows how the glorious truth of Christmas beats it every time! There is even space for each family member to make their own notes.

So get each family member a copy of A Jesus Christmas and a Bible, and find ten minutes a day in December to look at God's word together and dwell on the good news of Christmas.

In A Jesus Christmas, Barbara Reaoch introduces children to the amazing truth that God planned the first Christmas long before Jesus was born. Barbara takes us on a journey through the Scriptures showing us the signposts that point to the coming Savior and its fulfillment on the first Christmas Day. An excellent family Christmas book with a powerful gospel message.

With every Christmas becoming more commercialized, parents are earnestly seeking new ways to make the true story of Christmas much more clear to their children. One glance through this remarkable book tells me that "A Jesus Christmas" is just what mothers and fathers are looking for. What a great family project this is, providing guide points for discussion, age-appropriate activities, and "homework" for every child. I highly recommend this book as a practical and powerful way to keep Jesus Christ and his Word at the very center of your family’s Christmas.

Barbara Reaoch has written a fine series of family devotions for the Christmas season. These daily studies are interactive, instructive, and faithful to Scripture. If you have young children in your home, and you want to make this Christmas more of a “Jesus Christmas” than last year, try this little book by this experienced children’s teacher.

“It’s fabulous”

This book is fabulous. Our kids are aged 14,12,11&7 so finding something we can all access and remain engaged with can be tricky. I have been looking for a bible overview resource for the family and this seems ideal - not just for advent...
we are adding our own twist to enhance engagement- sweeties!
Day 1- snake sweets
Day2- star chocolate
Day 3 - jelly babies
Day 4 - we tried to build a staircase with chocolate ! And so on!
I am really pleased and delighted to have found this book for our family thank you so much.

We got these books for an 8 year old and a 10 year old girl. Both have loved them / one had been reading it every day with her non Christian friend (who has since been given a bible for Christmas as she was so interested!) brilliant!

“Great resource”

Currently going through this with my 4 children, aged 5-14. Very pleased with it. Really nice length. Easy enough for all of them to understand but challenging enough questions for the older ones too. My younger two love the journalling ideas and are drawing/colouring on separate paper - links to printable versions of the journalling pages would have been wonderful!

“A Gospel-Centered Christmas Devotional for the Whole Family!”

"A Jesus Christmas" by Barbara Reaoch is perfect for our little family of young children, sensitive hearts, and short attention spans! This family devotional is all about exploring God's amazing plan for Christmas. God is working in our hearts and preparing us to celebrate the beautiful truth that Jesus rescues.

I highly recommend this as a family's simple, easy to understand, Biblically based preparation for Christmas—you're going to want your own copy!

“Great Thanksgiving Gift”

This is an excellent resource for families who want to make sure Jesus is the focus of the Christmas season. It is well-written and age-appropriate. Perfect for children. I bought 10 copies and gave them out at Thanksgiving so friends and family could have them before Christmas.

“A good Bible overview”

This book was very helpful as we sought to focus on the birth of Jesus this year. The book basically went through the whole Bible and helpfully pointed to how Jesus's birth did away with the lies Satan has been telling the world since creation. It was very age appropriate for our kids aged between 4-9. It had easy comprehension questions for the younger ones and more contemplative questions for the older ones. I think there could have been more questions on each devotion, but only because our children love answering questions! Altogether, and very Bible-centred book.

“Grateful for this Resource”

My wife and I recently decided to start doing daily family devotions with our four year-old (as a sort of graduation from storybook Bibles), and thought that the Christmas season would be a perfect time to begin. We wanted something that would present the Word and point to Jesus, rather than the type of devotional that provides a scriptural snippet followed by four paragraphs of reflection. The sample pages of <i>A Jesus Christmas</i> looked promising, so we decided to give it a try. Well, I can't tell you how glad I am that we did! Our daughter engaged in the discussion questions night after night, and loved the journaling/doodling pages. Halfway through the book, she told my wife that she wanted Jesus in her heart, and they prayed for that together (naturally, on the one evening of the week when I'm out of the house, haha). At the very end of the devotional, families are prompted to write down what they've learned about Jesus, and she said, "That Jesus is King, and he gives us life!" To Mrs. Reaoch and the folks at The Good Book Co., thank you for making this available. The Seders family has been blessed by it!

Note: for the selections of Scripture, our family turned the NIrV. The NLT would also be suitable. Whatever you choose, the important thing is that you engage the Word together!

“A lovely child-friendly bible overview”

This is a helpful book for our family, with children aged between 9 and 2. I like the fact that it's a bible overview, rather than starting at the New Testament, as this should give us a better persepctive on the coming of our saviour. The journaling space is a nice idea, although all four of my children want to do that so I've had to photocopy those pages!

“An excellent resource”

This will be an excellent family devotional book for December. Beginning in Genesis and working through God's plan for salvation it clearly and helpfully shows Jesus to be the Saviour God promised and the world needs. With plenty of questions and space for children to draw it caters to a range of ages. This book will help to put ensure Jesus is the focus during the Christmas period.

“Awesome Advent Devotion”

Our three boys (7, 5, 2) ask to do our devotional all throughout the day. Barbara Reaoch's "A Jesus Christmas" is far and away the best devotional we've done as a family, Christmas or otherwise. Each devotional begins with a scripture reading followed by 2 questions to make sure everyone got the main points from the text. Next, Reoach shows how Satan's lies are refuted and dismantled in Christ's Incarnation. She masterfully covers deep theological truths in simple and short ways that kids can understand. Lastly, there is a family journaling page with creative prompts to repond to the devotion with art. This will be a book to look back on for years to come and enjoy the memories of studying God's Word together. Our family has had some major lightbulb moments throughout this devotion like the story of a mother bird protecting her chicks from a fire. Our son said, "I get it!! Jesus took the punishment we deserved. He died so we don't have to!" "A Jesus Christmas" is the perfect way to prepare for Christmas. We couldn't recommend it more highly!
