GENRE: Christmas Devotional
PUBLISHER: Abingdon Press
RELEASE DATE: October 4, 2016
PAGES: 224

The Most Wonderful Time of the Year by Ace Collins takes us from Dec 1st through the 31st on a devotional countdown to Christmas and beyond. Each day starts out by putting our focus on the reason we’re celebrating – the birth of Jesus and the change He makes in our lives. The Scripture and devotional then leads into the history of a Christmas hymn, along with the printed lyrics for our reflection. Each day ends with a seasonal craft or gift or recipe to make at home.

My favorite part of this devotional is the hymn histories and lyrics. I think sometimes we become so familiar with certain songs and carols that we sing them without really thinking about what the words mean. Allowing myself to stop and reflect on what I’m singing, on the true impact to my heart of words such as “So God imparts to human hearts / the blessings of His heaven” or “Good Christian friends, rejoice / with heart and soul and voice / now ye need not fear the grave / Jesus Christ was born to save!

Bottom Line: The whole book is excellently done and very sweet. In fact, I bought one for my mom so she and I can go through it together during the month of December.  Tons of great gift ideas that will pamper the people you love and give your presents a heartfelt touch, not to mention the yummy recipes I can’t wait to try! If you’re looking for something to keep your heart and mind focused on the true meaning of Christmas, look no further than The Most Wonderful Time of the Year by Ace Collins!

(I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book which I received from the publisher via Litfuse Publicity Group. All views expressed are only my honest opinion.)

My Rating: 4 stars / Excellent!

    This looks awesome! Thanks, my sweet daughter, for the book and for the times we’ll spend worshiping Jesus through it together this Christmas season! Can’t wait for December 1st to usher in the most wonderful time of the year! ?? ?

    One of my favorites is O Holy Night. I agree that the hymn lyrics and stories behind them would be a fun part of this book. It sounds like a great addition to the celebration of Christmas. Thanks for the review!

    Mary Did You Know is my favorite Christmas song. It is a newer song than a lot of the ones I grew up singing but it has such a wonderful meaning and makes you stop and think or wonder did Mary know!
