On My Christmas Bookshelf
New books are great, but my heart beats quicker when I find classic and vintage books. Add in the Christmas theme, and you’ve captured me completely. These five books are just a sampling of what I’m reading this December.
The Greatest Gift by Ann Voskamp. This book was published in 2013, and I’ve had it almost that long but hadn’t read it yet. It’s a daily devotional for the entire Advent season, complete with downloadable Jesse Tree ornaments and coloring pages. Put this one on your must-read list for next December and get a small tree to decorate with your ornaments. Love this book!
Gooseberry Patch Christmas Editions. I have several of these combination cookbooks/decorating guides/craft instructions/gift guides, and each one is a little treasure. I’m always on the lookout for new ideas, and sometimes old ideas are the best for new ideas. (That makes sense if you read it a few times, I promise.)
Can Martha Have a Mary Christmas by bread a Poinsett. I’m just starting this sweet book about combining the Martha spirit and Mary spirit from Scripture and using both to make this a Christmas season to remember. I’m looking forward to a quiet afternoon sometime soon to finish it.
