Christmas Is About Jesus is a 24-day advent devotional
by author and mother Mukkove Johnson. Beginning December 1st
and ending December 24th, each day features a devotional focusing
on one Christmas symbol. Using snowflakes, doves, bells, shepherds,
and more, Johnson shows how each symbol points us to Jesus. Each
short lesson includes a related Bible verse. Most of the lessons
are half a page or less, making them the perfect length for young
children. There are colorful illustrations on each page.
Like many Christian mothers, I am always looking for ways to help
my children remember the true meaning of Christmas in the midst
of the seasonal busyness that can distract us. Christmas
Is About Jesus helped me do just that. My children
enjoyed the lessons and looked forward to reading the next one
each night. The short length was perfect for holding their attention.
Also, because the lessons are short, if we did miss a night (which
always seems to happen during advent season) it was easy to make
up the lesson another night. In the past I have gotten overwhelmed
with complicated advent devotionals. Christmas Is About
Jesus was sweet, refreshing, and manageable. Our family
will use it again and again as long as we have young children.
