On What God Wants for Christmas

Family Life has made this precious little Christmas nativity set and book called "What God Wants for Christmas".



The set comes with 7 boxes each containing a different piece to the nativity - except the last box.







The seventh box contains what God wants for Christmas - it's a surprise, but I'm going to tell you so you can get this for your kiddos and let them be surprised.  (Unless of course you want to be surprised too...if that's the case, then read no further!)

The last box contains a mirror.  Because what God wants for Christmas is our hearts.









This was a really special thing for our family to include in our Christmas anticipation celebration this year.  We opened one box each day for a week at the beginning of December.  The girls were so excited each evening as we prepared to open a new box and talked all about what they thought might be in the next box.  These things of course led to several spiritual discussions and kept our hearts focused on the true meaning of Christmas.

Join the conversation, glorify the Lord, proclaim his goodness. I'd love it if you did.
