Litfuse Review: Total Christmas Makeover by:Melissa Spoelstra

 Total Christmas Makeover: 31 Devotions to Celebrate with Purpose
About the Book:
In the bustle of the Christmas season, it can be easy to get swept up in all of the things to do. But it's important to pause and remember that our priority should be to spend time celebrating Christ's birth and not forget to invite Jesus to his own party.

Christmas is far more than a celebration of an event from long ago or a modern holiday centered around shopping. Mindfully take time to listen to how God continues to speak through the Christmas story as the Gospel narratives centered around the birth of Jesus provide encouragement and revelation concerning the love of God and his wisdom for us today.

In Total Christmas Makeover, author and Bible teacher Melissa Spoelstra provides a practical approach for you and your family to turn your attention toward God's grace day-by-day as you prepare for Christmas. This 31-day devotional presents key scriptures, ideas to implement with each reading, and questions for reflection to guide you in rediscovering rituals, relationship, and rest to connect you more deeply with Christ this holiday season.


My Review:
 God always wants to be the center of our lives, all the time and every day--not just during the holidays. But hopefully for those of us that don't include him in our everyday lives we do pause at Christmas in order to give at least some thought as to the one that causes us to even have a Christmas. 

 So if you are looking for a devotional that is fitting for the holiday season, this one is a good one to pick up. There are 31 devotions in this little booklet. They are short and sweet and straight to the point. We don't have a lot of time during the holidays so this is the perfect devotional for time constraints. As well as, a perfect holiday devo that will keep us connected to Him and in the holiday spirit.
