Is it too early to start thinking about Christmas? For me, the answer is no! I have always loved the holiday season and yes that includes Thanksgiving which I know comes first lol. However, there is just something special about Christmas and celebrating the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. So since I am not opposed to getting started early why not share a Christmas Devotional with you guys, right? Hey, this way if you like what you see you can order it and have it in time to start December 1st! Good thinking right? Let’s get the legal disclaimer out of the way and jump right into this book, shall we?

About the Book:
My Personal Review:
I enjoyed reading through Total Christmas Makeover. If you love Christmas like I do and would like to pick up a lite devotional to use this coming season, then I believe this book would be a nice choice. The author has written 31 daily devotions that help inspire us to remember the true reason we celebrate Christmas. She has the book broken down into three categories, Rituals, Relationships, and Rest.
Within each of those categories, Spoelstra has written 10-11 daily topics that are meant to help us center our personal traditions and holiday activities back around Christ instead of losing our focus in the craziness of the busy season. I loved how she offers practical ways to work in the true meaning of the season without letting go of the fun traditions we have formed within our families.
As you start your daily topic you will find a scripture to use as a guide or the devotion that day and the author offers some tips that she has used in her own family’s holiday tradition. Spoelstra has also included a few questions at the end of each daily read that can be used to help you weave Christ throughout your current traditions and holiday celebrations.
I found the daily topics easy to read and helpful so I hope you will check out the other reviews from readers that have enjoyed this book as well. You can find more reviews on Melissa Spoelstra’s Total Christmas Makeover HERE.
