Review

"Traci Smith''s beautiful new book is an invitation to create and savor new traditions and rituals during the Advent and Christmas seasons. Instead of being distracted and disheartened by the usual culprit at the holidays consumerism and its shallow promises and payouts Smith shows us how to grow hope, peace, love, and joy in our homes. Full of fresh, engaging, and helpful prompts and ideas, this book is a gift!" --Jennifer Grant, author of A Little Blue Bottle and Maybe God Is Like That Too

"The beautiful thing about this book is that even though a plethora of Advent, Christmas and Epiphany practices are presented, author Traci Smith does not overwhelm families, but instead manages to encourage them to celebrate sacred moments and find together the true meaning of this holy season. This book truly is a treasure." --Glenys Nellist, author of Twas The Evening of Christmas and Twas The Season of Advent

"The gift of Traci Smith''s new book is that you can open it anywhere and find one simple, lovely thing to do, pray, tell, or make with your family that day (or let''s be honest, as Traci is, maybe the next day) to add joy and meaning to the holiday season. Advent is a time to draw near to God as God draws near to us in the birth of Jesus, and Faithful Families for Advent and Christmas is brimming over with wonderful, easy suggestions to help you do just that." --Wendy Claire Barrie, author of Faith at Home: A Handbook for Cautiously Christian Parents

YAY! Finally there is a book, resource, spiritual guide all in one that takes us all the way through the 1st part of the liturgical year. Traci Smith has put together a thoughtful, logical, simple, theological, creative, resourceful, engaging, educational, meaningful, helpful book that launches the liturgical year - Advent into Christmas into Epiphany - with energy, intelligence, imagination, and love! There is rich integrity in the writing and style that helps us with concrete ideas AND gives historical and spiritual guidance and information. This book is more than a "100 *ideas*" and is not like the usual artsy-craftsy resource one has to ferret thru to find 2-3 helpful ideas. I''ve read it thru once, can''t wait to read it again, and start thinking about what we want to do at our house AND what we can do in our church. The timing of this release is perfect to begin planning this fall. Our Advent, Christmas, and Epiphany at home and at church will be better b/c of this book!

This book is chock full of wonderful ideas so you can start some new traditions during Christmas, Advent, and even New Year’s! I love the approach - pick one or two of her ideas (and involve the kids in the choosing if they’re old enough)! So accessible. This is not a book that guilts you into doing “one more thing” during the Christmas season - it encourages you to let things go that don’t work for your family. What sweet relief! I plan on keeping this book with my holiday decorations, so every year when we deck the halls we can peruse the book again and keep adding fresh ideas/fresh traditions when needed.

I love how this book brings into reach the beauty and wonder of the season without creating a “to do” list for already-busy families. Some of the ideas in this book are just one step away from things your daily routine already includes, and some are novel but so easy to implement that the question is not “how do we do that?” but “why not?” A lovely guide to focusing on the more meaningful side of Christmas.
