The One Book Every Christian Family Needs This Christmas

Are you looking for…

• a meaningful children’s book to gift your kids with this Christmas season?
• faith-filled books for a Christian family that you know and love?
• a special book for your library, church, or home?

I’ve got the PERFECT one in mind for you!

If you're looking for books for a Christian family, don't miss out on this one book that every Christian family needs to buy this Christmas!

We are book people through and through. My toddler loves to curl up on the couch, in a chair, or even on the floor and “read” her books or have us read to her. She’s got stacks and stacks of books, and her favorites change every so often.

So do ours. We might love a book, but after 412 readings of it within a week, we need a new favorite. That’s why we’re always keeping our eyes peeled for quality children’s books that we know she’ll love.

Very rarely do I buy a new book for myself, much less for my child. I know these books are going to well-loved, to put it gently, so we mostly look at consignment sales and thrift shops. Usually, the new books come at Christmas and her birthday, as gifts from family.

But when this book was released, I made my way to a Christian bookstore and bought it brand new the week after it came out. Why? Because I knew it was something special. I could feel it. That’s why I think it’s the one book every Christian family needs this Christmas.

Oh, and you know what the funniest part is? It’s not even a Christmas book! But it is so powerful that I truly believe this is the one that everyone needs.

We’re big fans!

It’s called Who Sang The First Song? and it’s written by Christian recording artist Ellie Holcomb.

You may be familiar with Ellie Holcomb’s music and not know that she wrote children’s books. That’s because up until now, she didn’t. But when her daughter asked her one day, “Mama, who sang the first song?”, God touched her heart and gave her this story.

I don’t know if I’ve ever cried at a children’s book (maybe God Gave Us You), but this one brings tears to my eyes every time. The biblical truths, beautiful illustrations, and spirit behind the book are evident on every page.

The book travels through the musings of who may have sang the first song in a beautifully written and illustrated lyrical tale. Was it the lion’s first roar? Or maybe the waves crashing against the shore? Or could it have been when the thunder went boom?

If you're looking for books for a Christian family, don't miss out on this one book that every Christian family needs to buy this Christmas!
 

In the end, we see Who actually sang the first song and how He poured His song into everything He made. I won’t show you the whole book because you need to experience it for yourself, but I’ll close with this. If you buy one book this Christmas, let it be Who Sang The First Song? Your family needs it, I promise.

Buy “Who Sang The First Song?” here!

7 Ways to Help Your Kids Memorize Scripture (FREE ABCs of Scripture Printable)

Memorizing Scripture should be an important part of every Christian’s life, starting from a very early age. When I was a little girl, I committed many, many verses to memory and loved every minute of it. Vacation Bible School, Church Camp and Sunday School all played a part in those, but memorizing Scripture at home, with my family, was probably the most influential.

Helping your kids memorize Scripture is one of those most powerful things you can do as a parent. Follow these 7 steps to help your kids learn the Word!

What The Bible Says About Sex + How To Have “The Talk”

Wondering how to talk to your daughters about sex? Struggling with knowing what to say or how to not sound “lame”? You’re not alone!

I’m in a season of littles right now, but as our kids get older, it will become necessary to talk to them about sex. But how? What do you say? How do you keep it age appropriate? And what does the Bible even say about sex?

Kayla from The Accidental Nomad Life is sharing with us what the Bible has to say about sex, how we can teach our kids to be counter-cultural regarding their view of sex, and a wonderful course designed for preteen and teenage girls and their moms.

To The Mama With A Newborn In Church

You’re nervous, I know. Your baby is still unpredictable. Sometimes she sleeps for 2 hours, but sometimes it’s only 15 minutes and she wakes up screaming.

He went 3 hours without eating the other day, but other times, he’s hungry every 30 minutes. “I don’t want to feed him all during church,” you’ve said. You’re scared to feed with all those people around (“what if she pulls the blanket off?”), but you don’t want to be exiled to the nursery, either.

And on that note, there are so many people around. What if he gets sick? His immune system is still so new. Or what if her diaper leaks and I don’t realize it before it’s too late? Do I need to take a change of clothes for me, too?

What if he cries? What if she screams? Should I just leave him in the nursery? Will people judge me if I bring her into the sanctuary? How do I take care of a newborn in church?

Maybe we should just stay home.

To The Christian On Their First Day Of College

Look at you! You graduated high school; congratulations! You had an awesome summer of freedom, you attended new student orientation, you have the greatest roommate and no classes before 10 AM, so you’re ready to take on college. You feel unstoppable, like the world is at your fingertips. And in many ways, that is true.

You will love college. You will find your people and your major, your favorite spots in the library, the greatest intramurals. You will figure out which days the caf is not worth it, and which restaurants in the student center will make you sick every time. (Why did Chinese food on a college campus seem like a good idea?)

But there’s something I need you to remember. This is, and I’m risking a cliche here, the beginning of the rest of your life. Start it with Christ as the foundation, or it will crumble. Here is a letter, from my heart to yours.

An open letter to the Christian on their first day of college.
