The biblical story of Christmas can be confusing to kids who are bombarded with our culture’s holiday icons and values at every turn.
You have an opportunity this December to spend time not only decorating, wrapping gifts, and going to parties…but, most importantly, focusing your family’s hearts on whom it’s all for.
Good News of Great Joy is a simple, weekly devotional that’s intended to help your family focus on the story of Jesus’ birth, who he is, and why he was sent by God to be with us.
The discussion questions and wide range of activities are designed for children ages 2-11.
Each weekly devotional focuses on a different aspect of the Christmas story, building on the previous lesson:
Devotional 1: The Story of Mary and Joseph
Devotional 2: The Story of the Shepherds and Angels
Devotional 3: The Story of the Wise Men
Devotional 4: Review and Celebrate!
Read: Choose one or more of the ways listed to communicate the story, depending on the age of your child.
Pray: Take a moment to pray the written out prayer or say your own to help connect the Bible story to your own lives. This demonstrates to children how we can use God’s Word to help us talk to him.
Discuss and Do: To help children further understand and connect to the story, choose one or more of the simple activities. Have fun together and help the Christmas story come alive for your kids!
