Do you feel like you’re rushing through the holiday season? It’s such a busy time of year!
It seems like the days are flying by. During the busiest time of year, sometimes I get caught up in the lights, decorations, candy, and presents. It’s easy to lose focus and forget the true meaning of Christmas.
And all this holiday stress? It makes me more snippy with my kids.
Some days I say more of:
- “Get down from there!”
- “Stop doing that!”
- “No, you can’t open any gifts yet!”
And less of:
- “You are precious to me.”
- “I will never stop loving you.”
- “I’m so glad God made you just the way you are.”
The reason I started writing the Jesus, Mommy, and Me series is because I knew I wanted to nurture my children both emotionally and spiritually. To build them up and build a closer bond with them.
Moms just like you want to nurture and affirm their kids, but they aren’t sure what to say. Time slips away and devotions and Bible times are rushed or postponed.
Books in the Jesus, Mommy, and Me series are devotionals unlike any other.
Not only do these e-books teach practical, Biblical principles, but they also provide words of affirmation for your child to foster closeness between the two of you.
Geared towards children ages 4-8, Jesus, Mommy, and Me: 12 Days of Christmas Devotions provides you with an opportunity to:
- Teach your child the Christmas story in a way she can relate to.
- Pray with him in a powerful way.
- Build a closer bond with your child.
- Foster her self-esteem and self-worth.
- Remind your child that you will always love him.
- Speak words of affirmation over her.
- Tell him about your own childhood.
How does this work?
Each devotion reads like a letter, from you to your child.
Every daily reading includes:
Words of affirmation
- Devotional with the Christmas story
- Talking point
- And prayer
Finally! The Christmas story told in a relatable way.
Here’s what other moms are saying…
“As a busy mama of a toddler and a preschooler, it’s really important to me to create intentional time where I care for my children’s souls. This Christmas I don’t want all the extra activities to crowd out the important, which is why I am thrilled to have my hands on the Jesus Mommy and Me: 12 Days of Christmas Devotions ebook. I love that these devotionals are thought-provoking and short enough to captivate my kids’ attention.”

Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What age do you recommend for this book?
A: This book is targeted for kids ages 4-8. However, I’ve had moms with both younger and older kids tell me they really got a lot out of this devotion.
Q: I have more than one child. Can I read this to them together?
A: Yes, you can. However, I recommend that if you have more than one child, you read to them separately. Of course, you don’t have to! But I believe that both you and your child will get more out of it having that one-on-one time. These devotions are intentionally short and should only take about five-ten minutes of your time, per child.
Q: Can I use this for my church group/children’s ministry?
A: Yes! Please email me for bulk order requests: [email protected]
Q: Is this book good for adoptive families?
A: Yes. This book was written with adoptive families in mind. You can rest assured that it is appropriate for adoptive and biological families.
Q: Are you sure this book won’t be too “touchy-feely” for my son?
A: I get it. I have a son, too. He’s not too into the “mushy” stuff. But here’s what I know. Boys do need to hear that they are cherished, loved, wanted, and accepted. It’s just as important for boys to hear that as girls. Might they giggle or roll their eyes? Maybe. But the message will plant tiny seeds in their heart. They won’t forget how you built them up. Quick tip: You have the freedom to customize this book to fit your child! Feel free to use the adjectives that work best for your son.
Q: Can I still buy this e-book if I live outside the US?
A: Yes! You can purchase the Amazon Kindle version if you live outside the US. However, because of sales tax laws, I’m only equipped to sell the printable PDF version to US residents.
Q: What’s your return policy?
A: If you’re unhappy with your purchase for any reason, simply email me within 7 days of purchase and I will issue you a full refund. If you purchase via Amazon, you’ll need to contact them for a refund. (I really do think you’ll love it though!)
