Review & #Giveaway: Christmas Love Letters from God

cover image

CHRISTMAS LOVE LETTERS from God:

Written for children ages four to eight, Christmas Love Letters from God cleverly combines both prose and poetry as the story of Jesus’ birth unfolds. The book includes seven stories, beginning with Isaiah’s prophecy and ending with the visit of the wise men. Following each story, the child will find his or her own letter from God, folded into a small envelope attached to the page. Each letter begins with a space in which to write the child’s name, so each one can be specially addressed to the child.

Written as if God is speaking, each personalized message gives the young reader a sense of wonder as they discover anew the Christmas holiday and the birth of Jesus. A very special Bible verse, entitled God’s Perfect Promise, also accompanies each story and letter as God’s personal words of love, promise, and hope.

My Thoughts:

This beautifully illustrated book is so sweet and dear!  It truly makes the scriptures more personal on a child’s level.  I didn’t show this to my children yet, as it will be part of our Christmas Book Advent, but I can’t wait!  It’s just lovely!

These are the perfect size for a stocking stuffer this holiday season! 

These are great for that artsy crafty kiddo, and the mom who doesn’t like the mess it entails!  They are solid tempra paint sticks that dry in 90 seconds!  Yes 90 seconds!!  You don’t need paint cups, water, paint brushes or even smocks!  They are set-up and clean-up hassle free!  I kid you not! These things are amazing!  All of my kids enjoy them, even my 3 year old!  I love them too b/c messy art projects stress this momma out!

They work great on all mediums….paper, wood, canvas, cardboard… you name it!

We used them to throw together some quick Christmas cards for a package I’m sending my brother.  No need to wait for them to dry, then went straight into the package when done!
