Let Every Heart Prepare Him Room by Nancy Guthrie

Each year as we approach the Advent / Christmas season, I promise myself that we are going to focus on Jesus... not our busy-ness.  Each year I pull out the Advent devotionals, Advent calendar, and the Advent candles.  And yet, each year my good intentions go undone or are so hit-and-miss that we really are not focusing on the birth of Jesus.

Not this year!  After reading through Let Every Heart Prepare Him Room by Nancy Guthrie, I know my good intentions will become a reality!  Each day's reading is short enough to keep the interest of the youngest in the family and includes Discussion Starters to challenge your older teens and adults.  These questions help focus the discussion on Jesus and include additional Bible verses to read and ponder.  Interspersed through the book are Christmas hymns, not only the hymns, but also background on the music, words, and history of the time.  Also, each reading includes a prayer to help focus our eyes on Jesus.

This is a great resource and I look forward to spending quality time with the family as we remember and celebrate the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ.

Star Rating:  4.5 out of 5

The content of the book is 5 stars out of 5, but I had difficulty reading the small print.

  1. Very cool! We too struggle - but small little comments from my kids talking about Jesus's birthday make me know I'm really getting the message in their little brains!

    My 6 year old asked me how many birthday's Jesus has celebrated! Too cute!

    I'm here from iFellowship - just a day late! LOL!

  2. I gave up on Advent Stuff many years ago. Between my scatterbrained-ness (never finding everything or starting on time) and the fact that my husband was always away on business trips (I didn't like coralling the 3 little boys for Advent all by myself)-the Advent Calendar/Candles/Devotions went out the window.

    The Hip Hop thingy always reminds of blogs I have not read in a week.. good to check in on you!
