Publisher's Description

In the bustle of the Christmas season, it can be easy to get swept up in all of the things to do. But it’s important to pause and remember that our priority should be to spend time celebrating Christ’s birth and not forget to invite Jesus to his own party.

Christmas is far more than a celebration of an event from long ago or a modern holiday centered around shopping. Mindfully take time to listen to how God continues to speak through the Christmas story as the Gospel narratives centered around the birth of Jesus are filled with encouragement and revelation concerning the love of God and his wisdom for us today.

In Total Christmas Makeover, author and Bible teacher Melissa Spoelstra provides a practical approach for you and your family to turn your attention toward God’s grace day-by-day as you prepare for Christmas. This 31-day devotional presents key scriptures, ideas to implement with each reading, and questions for reflection to guide you in rediscovering rituals, relationship, and rest to connect you more deeply with Christ this holiday season.

    Every year I tell myself I will slow down and celebrate the real reason for Christmas. I will not let another year blow in distractions and I will not let the never-ending Christmas to-do list rob me of the quiet time celebrating the birth of my Lord and Saviour.

    This sweet little book contains 31 days of devotions. I love the Scripture for each day to focus my attention on God's Word. The Author has included sweet Christmas traditions and origins of many of our loved traditions. I love that each day is a little nugget and an easy read in this busy time of year. I love this little devotional.

    If you need to have a makeover of your Christmas season this...pick up a copy of this little book.

    Just in time for the holidays. A great devotional for the busy mom who wants to have a more meaning Christmas for her family.

    Melissa Spoelstra begins the book sharing her families Christmas experiences. From her own experiences as a child and her husbands. They took their own experiences and tried to blend a

    special time for their children.

    With frank honesty Melissa shares how the early Christmas' were a bit of a failure with a 6 year old, 1 year old twins and a 3 month old.

    As the attempted to bring meaning into the holiday season they read Bible stories and tried to make the season center around Christ.

    I loved the frankness as she shared how her 6 year old was

    thoroughly enchanted with the event. While the 3 month old fell asleep. And then there were the 2 year old twins happily exclaimed when asked "Who created the world." One twins response was "I did!"

    Many of us have been there. Trying to bring significance to the holidays and remind and remember the reason for the season.

    With this small devotional a mere 203 pages Melissa shares thoughts ideas and suggestions to make this season one that is special and centered around Christ.

    The book is a fast and easy read. With some humor to make the reading light and enjoyable.

    The book is made up of 3 separate sections:

    Ritual with 10 days of devotionals

    Relationships with 10 days of devotionals

    Rest with 11 days of devotional

    Each short devotional begins with a scripture and ends with a prayer, followed by questions for reflection and a practical approach filled with suggestions and ideas.

    I would suggest this great book to everyone.

    This would be a great gift to give to an adult child at Thanksgiving.

    I think it would be a great book to read with a group of friends as a Bible study for the holidays.

    Whether the application group study or individual study you'll

    come away feeling a little more relaxed and ready for the wonderful season of Christmas!

    I received a complimentary copy from Litfuse.

    TOTAL CHRISTMAS MAKEOVER is a devotional to start around Thanksgiving. It includes some verses, thoughts about the verses -- which is set around a theme, such as light to the world, worship, traditions, etc -- a prayer, and three or four questions for reflection. You will need a notebook for writing your answers if you don't like to mark up books. There is also an application.

    The way it is designed makes me think it is designed for a women's small group or once a week Bible study, where you would read and discuss as a group. It is ideal for that. I can also be done alone, but I think it'd be more fun as a group, where maybe you could even plan to do some of the applications as a group.

    This is a more indepth devotional that will take more than a minute or two of your time. You will want to take the time to study the verses, read the story (maybe a couple of times, pray, make plans for the application, and put some thought into the questions.

    I was given a copy free. All opinions are my own.
