My children (ages 5, 2.5, and 9 months) LOVED this devotional. We did not have a physical Jesse Tree with ornaments this year (though may try adding that next year) but even so they looked forward to looking up our scripture and reading through the story and answering the questions every day. We liked it so much I am now on the hunt for something similar to use for our every day family devotions! We will definitely be using this for years to come. Highly recommended!
We have used this precious little book for years and bought this edition as a gift for a friend. It is beautiful and a highlight of our Christmas season as we read the devotions together and hang handmade ornaments on our own little Jesse Tree. With all the clutter of the holiday season, this is our family's way of focusing on the Saviour and all the promises He fulfilled! Love it!
The whole family has been pleased with this book. The symbols make it easy for the children to remember the story and relate it to a verse they have memorized. Permission has been granted by the author to copy the illustration within the book, for ease of finding the ornamental symbols. We colored ours with pencil and hang them on some leafless branches we call our 'Jesse Tree'. We all love the variety of hymns and spiritual songs they list ( I only wished they were all in one(1) book, for my convience). The scripture passages bring us all back to the Truth of God's word. The thought provoking questions at the end keep everyone attentive. I enjoy reading the adult's devotion in the morning then, as a family, have the children's devotion, sing the songs, and hang the symbol at night. I look forward to using this book every year, bring God's word closer to our hearts.
