A Cluttered MindRochester, MNAge: 45-54Gender: male4 Stars Out Of 5A marvelous tool for Advent & ChristmasNovember 4, 2014A Cluttered MindRochester, MNAge: 45-54Gender: maleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4God has blessed His church with many people, not least of whom is Marty Machowski. Marty has written several books to help families and churches teach their children well. Now, Machowski offers, 'Prepare Him RoomCelebrating the Birth of Jesus Family Devotional'.
Families of younger children (age 11 and under) will benefit greatly from this book.Prepare Him Room provides three sections for each of the four weeks of Advent. So, for example, if your family started usingPrepare Him Room on Sunday, November 30, you would do three sections that first week and so on. Then, there's a final reading for Christmas Day. Plus, Marty adds a new story called 'Bartimaeus' that will help bring it all together for all listeners. There are activities, songs, even recipes (in some of the sections) that will help make memories as well as help young participants treasure up the incarnation within their hearts. Families of slightly older children can still benefit. I would recommend having the older kids read the chapters to their siblings or be in charge of songs or baking. Grandparents: you, too, can be actively involved by purchasing these for your grandchildren, either as gifts or for you to use (if you live nearby).
One of the things Machowski does so well in his books is tie the Old Testament and New Testament together. Drawing from Old Testament prophecies and showing their fulfillment in the New, the author helps all to see that God's Word is a whole; that the story of redemption is the singular theme.
If your church is looking for ways to help Advent remain alive, not becoming stale in the same old, same old routine, then order the curriculum version of Prepare Him Room. There are class ideas along with a teaching CD which will prove helpful. One of the challenges each year, on these major church holidays, is taking a story that is so familiar it's almost become mundane. How sad, that the incarnation of our Lord should be reduced to that. Allow Marty Machowski to help breathe fresh air into this account and have families invigorated for this Advent season.
As a father, grandfather and a pastor, I highly commend this book to you.
