My guest today is my fellow First 5 app Bible teacher, and brand new mama, Titania (Nia) Paige. I mean she is a brand new mama, as in less than four weeks! One moment she and I were talking while she was in the waiting room at her doctors and the next thing I knew, she was headed to the hospital to give birth to a sweet baby girl. I’m grateful she found time to give us some Christmas thoughts and a fantastic giveaway. Here’s my friend Nia…
Christmas and giving go hand-and-hand don’t they? This spirit of generosity is inspired by Christ, who gifted us with His presence and His salvation through His sacrifice on the cross. Traditionally, Christmas gifts are exchanged on December 25th, but this year I got an early Christmas gift: my precious first-born daughter, Gabrielle.
Looking ahead to when my husband and I teach Gabrielle about the significance of Christmas, our hope is Christ will be at the center of this cherished celebration. One practical way we plan to resist the commercial and materialistic appeal of Christmas is by having a consistent family devotional time that includes scripture reading, prayer, and meditation on God’s word. Though it’s easy to become distracted by the hustle-and-bustle of the holidays, I can’t wait to teach Gabby how to focus on the true meaning of Christmas through reading God’s word.
Leave us a comment telling us how scripture, or the nativity story, is a part of your celebration of Christmas.

I shared this on another post, but we read Luke 2 as part of our Christmas morning traditions,
Well I’ve mentioned it a few times already but it’s still the same. ? My husband reading Luke’s account of the birth of Jesus!
We started talking about the true meaning with our 2.5 year old this year. We got him a couple books we read together and a play nativity set. The other day we were talking about how we celebrate Jesus’s birthday and he said “no it my birthday”…. ha ha ha! We’ll keep trying!!
Love t shirts that praise God!
We read scripture everyday at the beginning of school, we homeschool.
We try to always take time daily during advent to share scripture and talk together as a family about the real reason we celebrate the birth of our Savior Jesus. One of my favorite books we share still is Ann Voskamp – Unwrapping The Greatest Gift
