It's Christmas time and one of my favorite things to do is read Christmas themed books. Do you enjoy reading holiday themed books? Do you have any special book you read every year? Do you have a special devotional you like to use? (not fiction..I know!) Have you read any good Christmas books this year?
Believe it or not, this is the very first year that I am reading a Christmas book. I just started reading Finding Father Christmas by Robin Jones Gunn last night. It is really well written...I love the descriptive narrative. I feel the cold or warmth, I smell the scones, I taste the tea. So wonderful.
Also, for a devotional, my kids and I are reading The Gospel of Mark this month as well as His Upmost for My Highest. We do an advent calendar which has a scripture verse for each day and we stick on a character from the Nativity scene onto a poster. The boys really enjoy it. I'll have to take a picture when we do it tonight to show you what I mean.
I do plan on reading four more 'Christmas' books from Wild Card this month. I'm really looking forward to The Winter of Candy Canes by Debbie Viguié. The others will be O Little Town by Don Reid, Do You See What I See? by Ross Parsley (Non-Fiction), and Let Them Eat Fruitcake by Melody Carlson.
