SmitCo’s Light-Up Emoji Theme Journal for Girls is pretty hip! The Emoji designs are all the rage right now with kids and pre-teen girls. This journal isn’t just any old journal. The hard-cover lights up spanning several colors lasting for a few seconds with pressing down on one of the smiley faces on the front. It comes with an invisible ink pen with a blue light that allows the user to create their own hidden messages and secrets!
I never jumped on the Elf of the Shelf train though fully aware of what it is. I thought it was a fun idea to count down the days until Christmas morning but we don’t teach that Santa will be arriving. My kids haven’t ever believed in Santa Claus though they know he is based upon a real man and still enjoy the fictional stories about him. We instead, read devotions and books that are Christ-centered each day during the month of December. This year will be a little bit different as I was introduced to a Christian alternative of daily fun to implement into our countdown until Christmas day.
“The Christmas Star From Afar” is a unique way to teach & remind children about the true meaning of Christmas year after year! This game is designed to be used daily from December 1st to December 25th. It is a 16 piece set that comes with a hardcover book and full wooden nativity set.
Bible Promises to Live By for Women by Katherine Butler, is a small book but it packs a punch. It has over 500 promises found in the Word of God that cover a plethora of topics. These promises ring true and can be applied to the life of anyone that is willing to fall fully into the promises God has for them.

“Twas the Evening of Christmas” is a wonderful retelling of the story of when Jesus was born. Like Clement C. Moore’s classic, “Twas the Night Before Christmas” this twist written by Glenys Nellist and illustrated by Elena Selivanova follows a similar rhythm and verse.
