My guest today is my close friend and three-time coauthor Ruth Schwenk. Ruth has a passion for helping moms grow better through her popular website TheBetterMom. Today she is helping us in the area of gift-giving, sharing some great spiritual growth book and Bible ideas for the kids in our lives. Here’s Ruth…
There is something so special when the loved ones in our lives can see the sentiment behind the gifts we give them. Those will be the gifts they remember.

I try to read scripture more, Luke. A Christmas Carol is a great reminder to think and give to others.
The Best Yes by Lysa Terkheurst has become a favorite for me.
I do this same thing, each year, for my kids only at Easter not Christmas. I love it! We loved the ‘Jesus story book Bible’ in the past. One got ‘Indescribable’ this past Easter, we’re still working our way through it but my science lovers LOVE it. This year, Love Does for Kids’ is on the list. I have also bought several John McArthur study bibles and gave away through the years. I will be looking in to some of your suggestions. Thank you for them!
I have been giving Ellie Holcomb’s new book, Sing!
I’m excited to check some of these out I don’t have a good one. Thanks
Yes, indeed — It is the most wonderful time of the year!
I have always made sure that Jesus is at the center of our CHRISTmas celebration.
Over the years, I have acquired many Christ-centered items — Scripture ornaments; Christmas coloring books; a coffee-table book of Christmas poems and short-stories, etc. We would use and re-use many of these things every year.
Two of my children are engaged, so we will have weddings in 2019 … what marvelous gift ideas for my children, as they establish their own homes. Thank you for the wonderful suggestions.
Love gift giving!! For me this time of year there is nothing better than a journal!!! Whether it’s a pretty one or one used for journaling workouts for guys…to look back and see how far you’ve come and what you’ve accomplished!
Thank you for reminding us to give meaningful gifts!
A few years ago I gave all the women in our family Jesus Calling
What an awesome family gift!
We just bought the Jesus Storybook Bible for my girls this year after hearing tons of awesome things about it!!
I am not familiar with any special Christian books, but this has given me some great ideas and resources.
I visited Ann Arbor in late September, one of the friendliest places I’ve ever been!
I love your suggestions.
When we read scripture together we look up unfamiliar words. I like to journal, but my kids are very keen on that. But we do read devotional books together sometimes.
