A 25-day Christmas Devotional for the whole family.

Are you looking for a way for your family to spend quality time together this Christmas season? Are you worried with all the hustle and bustle of the season you will miss focusing on the true meaning of Christmas? Do you want to create a tradition that will grow with your family as the years go on?

If you answered yes to any or all of the questions above this devotional is for you and your family.

My family is really excited about participating in this devotional starting on December 1st. We are planning to make it a yearly tradition and watch as our family grows and to add in more sections as time goes on. This devotional is meant for the whole family and helps parents tell their children about the “reason for the season” in a fun, thought provoking way.

The book is broken up into 3 parts.

  • Is the Christmas story real? (Day 1-3)
  • The Christmas Story (Day 4-21)
    • Characters
    • Elements
  • Why is the Christmas Story Important? (Day 22-25)

Each day is broken into six parts. Depending on your family’s ages, busy schedule and other life factors you can include one, all six or something in between.


  1. A Closer Look
  2. Read
  3. Daily Devotional
  4. Let’s Talk
  5. Prayer
  6. Family time

The closer look section gives parents a little extra information for the devotion before you get started. Since our family consists of a toddler we will be doing the daily reading and family time activity. The family time activities are designed to bring you together as a family and to create lasting memories. Every day contains a meaningful Christmas song and most days contain a suggested children’s book. You can see the list of books here.

Our family hopes to set up this as annual tradition and build on it as our family grows. I’m really looking forward to celebrating Christmas this year and following this devotional as a family.

  1. Thanks so much for letting us know about this devotional. I think it is so important that we are intentional about keeping Christ at the center of our Christmas celebrations and activities. Some of the ways we do that are setting up our large Nativity, participating in Operation Christmas Child, setting up a Jesse Tree, and participating in a family gift exchange via the Advent Conspiracy (you can read about that on my blog to see how we do it, if you are interested.) Thanks, again, for the info. and for the chance to win a copy of this book!

    • Those are great traditions. I love reading the Christmas story on Christmas morning helps us remember the real gift we are celebrating.

    • It is a great book. There are even options for 7, 14 or some other combination of days in case 25 days is too daunting. 🙂
