We were recently sent God Gave Us Love and God Gave Us Christmas by Lisa Tawn Bergren to review and I cannot deny that I really like these books! We have always been a fan of God Gave Us You and these two books are wonderful additions to our God Gave Us collection!
One of my favorite things about God Gave Us Christmas is that it addresses the Santa issue without bluntly ruining a child's wonder in the magic of Christmas. Instead it simply redirects children's attention to God and His all-important role in the holiday. The story is tender and loving- a wonderful book to read before bed and may even make you want to set aside a special time for each of your children to have some one-on-one moments with you this season.
God Gave Us Love is equally as wonderful and a true joy to read. I think this book is especially good for children with younger siblings (or any siblings at all for that matter) as it emphasizes not only God's love for us but the importance of us showing love to others. I am really looking forward to using this book during the month of February for a study we are planning to do on the Fruits of the Spirit, but it's theme obviously applies to our whole lives! I think the message this book imparts can be beneficial for the whole family and could also be used during a family devotional time for little ones.
