When I was a young mom with two rambunctious boys I wanted them to truly see Jesus not just everyday but at Christmas as well. Yet, I came to loathe the Christmas season. All of the demands of a young mother at Christmas kinda set me over the edge each year. But being that I love my Savior and Christmas is a time to celebrate His birth, I knew I needed to make some changes in my attitude and expectations of what to do during this glorious season.

“How to Create a Christ-Centered Christmas for Your Kids“, is one of the best books I have ever read on the topic of having a Christ centered Christmas. It’s truly an amazing book that Jolene wrote with words that God placed on her heart. It’s broken down into eleven chapters that share various ways of how you can make the focus of your Christmas on Jesus. The chapters explore how you can take any aspect of Christmas and turn them into times of learning for your children about who our Savior truly is. The topics covered range from decorating the Christmas tree, the meaning of Advent, to the purpose of a nativity set. My personal favorite chapter was, “A Stocking for Jesus”.
If I could describe this book in one word it would be intentional. Jolene is very intentional about making sure that each chapter is directed towards a Christmas activity that puts Jesus as the center of it’s focus. This book definitely fulfills it’s purpose of teaching your children about who our Savior really is, and about building a spiritual foundation for them that will last a lifetime.
This book was amazing!! I have struggled so badly with these issues. Every year is such a hassle because I chose to go against the grain and make CHRISTmas about Jesus. I get a lot of things said such as you have to do the “santa thing” because of all the nieces and nephew. Your kids are gonna ruin it for ours. I couldn’t justify telling the lies to my children just to protect their lies. Its a battle for certain but this book helped me a ton and I truly believe the fight that has to be fought is worth it because Jesus is sooooooo worth fighting for!!!
