We have used this precious little book for years and bought this edition as a gift for a friend. It is beautiful and a highlight of our Christmas season as we read the devotions together and hang handmade ornaments on our own little Jesse Tree. With all the clutter of the holiday season, this is our family's way of focusing on the Saviour and all the promises He fulfilled! Love it!

The whole family has been pleased with this book. The symbols make it easy for the children to remember the story and relate it to a verse they have memorized. Permission has been granted by the author to copy the illustration within the book, for ease of finding the ornamental symbols. We colored ours with pencil and hang them on some leafless branches we call our 'Jesse Tree'. We all love the variety of hymns and spiritual songs they list ( I only wished they were all in one(1) book, for my convience). The scripture passages bring us all back to the Truth of God's word. The thought provoking questions at the end keep everyone attentive. I enjoy reading the adult's devotion in the morning then, as a family, have the children's devotion, sing the songs, and hang the symbol at night. I look forward to using this book every year, bring God's word closer to our hearts.

Everything I have ever ordered from CBD has been the quality that I was looking for and more. I love their selection of products and they always communicate and ship rapidly. Highly recommended to anyone who wants quality Christian supplies.

Light up your Christmas with a new tradition! . . . I was expecting another "devotional book" rolling off the "printing press," though what I received was an outlook I'd passed around before, though "never shared." How stingy of me. This is a wonderful way to bring Peace to Christmas, end your fears of the endless shopping; and lay down in green pastures with our Father, Jesus. . . . Rev.Ron

My family has been using this devotion during Advent for the last 4 years. My boys look forward to unwrapping the ornaments and placing them on our "tree" every morning!! It has become one of our most treasured traditions. What a joy it is to follow God's magnificent plan from Genesis through the Old Testament right to the birth of Jesus in the New Testament. The devotions for children are easy to understand yet not dumbed down. The adult devotions are thought provoking and focused. I highly reccomend this book as an excellent addition to advent traditions.
