Good News of Great Joy Devotions
How it’s set up
This is a short, but very thorough, family devotion. Each individual devotion (a total of four) teaches a different part of the Christmas story starting with Mary and Joseph, continuing to the Shepherd and Angels, moving on to the story of the Wise Men, and wrapping up with a review and a birthday party for Baby Jesus.
For ease of use, each of the four devotionals are organized in the same way. First, parents choose one or more ways to tell the story depending on the age of the children. Secondly, take a minute to pray over the Bible story. Finally, discuss the lesson to help kids understand and connect to the story. Choose an activity to bring the Christmas story to life.
