Pastor, Broadgrace Church, Norfolk, UK; Author, Serving Without Sinking and You Can Really Grow

This book is truly a gift to families, for two reasons. The first is that fixes our eyes, and those of our children, on our gift-giving Lord. In the middle of plays, parties, presents, relatives and all the rest of the Christmas chaos, we need our eyes and hearts set on Christ. Lizzie Laferton’s deep and unfussy approach to the Bible leads us straight to Jesus and to his generous Father. The second reason to use these family devotions is that they are flexible enough to suit any family and simple enough to pick up and use without preparing beforehand. This will be a gift to your family.

Author, Head, Heart, Hands and Deeper Still

This helpful resource kick-started our (flagging) family devotions, and in the words of my son, ‘helped me to worship Jesus more’. As a parent, you could not ask for more from a devotional!

Jeff and Sarah Walton

Authors, Together Through the Storms

In a winsome and down-to-earth way, Lizzie Laferton’s Advent devotional offers a compelling and beautiful picture of who Jesus is and why he is the greatest gift and Gift-Giver of all. These devotions will leave you in wonder and awe of our Savior.

“wonderful”

(Review written for 'The God of Amazing Gifts')

I'm always on the look out for good advent devotionals for our family and this one was just wonderful.

Laferton structures the book with four parts that include twenty four chapters. The conclusion involves the final Christmas Day. Her introduction goes through the process of using the devotional for your family. Although she states the most appropriate age for children is 7-14, I do believe it can be adapted to fit younger or older children.

Each devotional follows the same format throughout the entire book:

- Scripture

- Prayer

- Question & Discussion

- Applicable Question

- Final Prayer

Each question section has different options that lean towards a specific age group. This allows the family to choose which is most appropriate for their children.

Although the daily devotions didn't include hands on activities, Laferton did include an appendix that provides a plethora of different ideas to utilize for each devotion. These ideas range from specific activities to further discussion.

This will be a fun devotional for all level of families during the advent season.

I received a copy of this book from The Good Book Company in exchange for an honest review.
