Christmas Is About Jesus Ornaments

When I first wrote this book for my children and neices and nephews I also made them a set of ornaments to match each devotion so they would have something to look forward to every day. It soon became the favorite part of Their devotion. I loved it because the children would remind me to do the devotion so they could put up their ornament! Check them out in Books & Things.

Christmas Is About Jesus Coloring pages

I drew a set of coloring pages to go along with each day's devotion. Check them out in Books & Things.

What Parents are Saying


"I adore it. It teaches things even I didn't know, yet presents it in a way my kids will understand and enjoy. I love the simple way it is organized; it will be so easy to use and apply this Christmas season. It meets to such a need, to bring families back to the reason and message of Jesus' birth, and in a unique, interesting and convenient way. I also love that you have a web reading [audio book] of it set up. What an awesome idea!" ~Amanda

I love this book! Christmas is about Jesus is an excellent way to share the true meaning of Christmas with your children. There is a symbol for each day and a page to read with it that explains the meaning behind the symbol and how it relates to Christmas/Jesus. It's a great way to introduce the Christmas theme as a devotional that will help your child to hunger for Christ. Beautifully written! ~Sherry Rossman - parent and author

Christmas is a time that is busy and bustling with so many activities it can be difficult to find time to focus on the real meaning of Christmas. If we do find a few minutes, it can be even more daunting to know where to begin teaching our children the life-changing truths about Jesus Christ's birth. Mukkove Johnson recognized this challenge and authored the children's book Christmas is About Jesus: An Advent Devotional as a tool to help meet this need.

I love this book. I love the idea behind the book and the purpose for the book. I think Mukkove did an excellent job putting together a resource to bring parents and children together each day during the month of December ... Read more ~Kristi Burchfiel, author of applicable Bible studies and devotionals 

We love this book, and are happy to make reading it as a family a new tradition. Mukkove has done an amazing job tying in each popular symbol of Christmas with who Jesus is, and why Christmas is all about Him! You will not be disappointed with this purchase. The illustrations are adorable, and the writing is perfectly at my kid's levels. (Ages 2-9) Beautiful job!!! ~Amanda
