There is a special note at the end of each short story that is a Love Letter from God. The author, Glenys Nellist, writes these letters of course, but really they help apply how this is a story that shows how God loved then and still loves us today. These letters are really special and help you understand God’s loving plan behind the birth of Jesus for all the characters involved in the story all the way to us.
I really like the one to after the story about Joseph. It says something about how God is thankful that Joseph said yes to being the earthly father for Jesus and that when God is tugging at your heart, do not be afraid to say yes also and he will be there for us too. This book helps us see how personal this story is to us. We really adore this book!
The stories included are all around the birth of Christ. They are as follows:
Isaiah's Good News
Wise Men's Wonder
It includes scripture references and a verse that could easily be a memory verse.
Each story has a letter from God - which is a personal message to the reader encouraging them with the message of the story and with some application questions.
At the end is a letter that has 'My Gift to Jesus' and inside it starts 'Dear Jesus' and has lines for the reader to write to Him. Really sweet
The illustrations are superb! The illustrator, Rachel Clowes, has done a stunning work in this book. I highly recommend it! It is a beautiful book, would make a great gift or addition to everyone's bookshelves at christmastime. It is very unique.
Please note that I was sent a copy of this book for purposes of review, however the opinions expressed are entirely my own.
I personally loved how each mini-story tied into a promise from God in the Old Testament. As I lifted the flap and read the letter from God, each promise seemed to jump off of the page and speak right to my heart.
The exciting thing is that children will have this experience as they read the book. As they lift each flap to receive a letter from God, the Christmas love letters will help them to personally connect a promise of Scripture to their own life struggles, fears, and experiences.
When I feel worried or apprehensive about what God is asking me to do (like Mary) God says, “The light of my blessing will shine on you.”
When I have doubt (like Joseph), God says, “I will make you strong and help you.”
When I am facing a long and difficult path (like Mary and Joseph on the way to Bethlehem), God says, “I will march out ahead of you.”
These are powerful truths for everyone—parents, grandparents, and children!
I also loved how Glenys began with Isaiah, which will help children to make the important connection that Jesus was the fulfillment of a promise God made to bring his light to the world. I also loved how she concluded with a space for the child to write a letter back to God, as a way of giving a gift back to him.
Although my children are grown now, this would be a beautiful book to use year after year as a family tradition, and I know it would become well-loved Christmas read-aloud for any family.
