Discover how each figure of the nativity can lead your family closer to Christ this Christmas season. Learn the tradition of the tinkling bell, whip up a batch of French cocoa, create a tender mercy tree, and find ways to make your gift-giving more meaningful as Celebrating a Christ-Centered Christmas guides you through seven meaningful traditions inspired by the nativity setting. These simple experiences will give you an opportunity to escape from the frantic busyness of the Christmas season to spend time reflecting on the Savior and the miracle of His birth.
I love this small and powerful little book about making Christ the center of our Christmas celebration! I feel motivated and anxious to begin new traditions inspired by Freeman. I think what I love the most is that you don't have to come up with your own ideas, you can borrow Freeman's and she gives plenty of them. I will forever look at the nativity with more meaning and more reflection on the role of each person in that stable. The stories will uplift you, the message will touch your heart and have you yearning to make your Christmas more focused on Christ.
