Total Christmas Makeover by Melissa Spoelstra Blog Tour

About the book:

Give your Christmas a makeover with this practical approach to help your family learn what it means to truly celebrate their Savior.
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.

In Emilee’s opinion:
I loved Melissa Spoelstra’s approach on how to celebrate Christmas with a purpose. Total Christmas Makeover was the total package and will help you and your family understand and appreciate the true meaning of Christmas. There were a total of 31 devotions that you can use each day. Each one included a story, questions, and a practical approach (ideas on how to take action). I loved when the practical approach included daily, weekly and somewhere in between ideas. I especially loved Day 4: Make A Joyful Noise. Melissa used a quote from one of my favorite movies, Elf. She quoted, “The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear!”I also loved her idea to worship God with heart, mind, and soul as you sing in gratitude for His coming to earth. Music brings joy into our home and I loved all of her ideas on how to create a joyful noise in the home. There were many other wonderful ideas so I definitely recommend Total Christmas Makeover to help you get in the spirit of Christmas.
