What Think Ye of Christmas?

Christmas is one of my two favorite times of the year and this book explains why.

"Christ, they say, has been taken out of Christmas. Small wonder, they say, that some don't even call it Christmas any more."

This beautiful book shares some of the favorites of Christmas and shows us how they symbolize the Savior of the world, and even more powerfully, it shows us how we can be reminded of Him and come closer to Him.

The amazing art of Jana Parkin coincides so beautifully with the message.

I had seen some other reviews of the book and I had read on Jana's blog the story behind the book, but it wasn't until I held it in my hands and read through it, listening to Christmas music, of course, that I felt the peaceful Spirit of the Christ, the reason for the season.

It would make a wonderful gift for those on your list or even for yourself. Mine is going to be displayed in my living room.

I love this time of year because of its peace. I can remember the Savior, not only his birth, but his life and mission. He lived and died for each of us.

I believe this with all my heart.

Thanks Ester Rasband and Jana Parkin for the gift of this book.

  1. It is so disheartening that Jesus no longer seems to be the focal point of the Christmas season.

  2. I love Christmas,too! Sounds like a great book. We have a Christmas Elf, but we also have a manger to put straw in for doing good deeds for the baby Jesus. Hopefully I'm achieving a good mix of holiday fun and spiritual meaning for my little guys.

  3. I have that book in my living room too. When I first read it, I cried.

    You're a gem, Shari. Wishing you a peaceful, joyous holiday season. *hugs*

  4. Very nice! Thanks for the recommend Shari!

  5. I'll have to check out the book Shari. I think Christmas is such a wonderful time. I love the spirit that it brings. =)

  6. HOW did I miss this last week?!?

    Thanks so much for your review! And for sharing your testimony.
