Truth in the Tinsel

Over 13,000 copies sold!

Does the craziness of the holidays seem to sweep you away? Do you sit there on December 25th and say, “Wait. Did we even talk about Jesus the last 24 days?” Do Santa, gifts and parties cloud over the real stuff you want to focus on?

It’s a feeling most of us have experienced at one time or another!

Believing that December is one of best times to impress God’s Word on our kids’ hearts, Amanda created the Truth in the Tinsel ebook and activities. As our whole country turns its attention to Christmas — playing songs of worship to the newborn king, showing movies that share the real meaning of Christmas, and decorating with Bible characters — it’s a great time to help kids meditate on and learn the real story of Jesus’ birth.

This ebook offers you a daily advent-ure that will lead you and your children on through the Christmas story. In just a few minutes each day, you’ll read the Christmas story directly from the Bible, make a fun ornament craft and talk about it together.

Give your kids a few minutes each day in December; you might find your kids giving themselves to Jesus in return!

“Amanda has found the perfect way to lead little hearts into preparation and anticipation of the true celebration of Christmas. All the hands-on ideas in “Truth in the Tinsel” are fresh and winsome. I wish I’d had this book when our children were young.”

“What an excellent resource for parents with young children–really this is great for the entire family. It is activity based, saturated in scripture, and provides a platform for leading families closer to Christ this Christmas season. I highly recommend Truth in the Tinsel!”

~Jeremy Self, Pastor of Teaching and Community, Church at Lake Travis, Austin, TX

“Is it time yet?!” The question came every day as my children worked through Truth in the Tinsel. It’s my favorite resource for making the nativity story come alive for my children … and they’d agree! In fact, I had to print another copy because they wanted to do the activities again throughout the year. My mother-heart is happy to see my children so excited about God’s Word.”

~Tricia Goyer, USA Today best-selling author of 40+ books, including The Kissing Bridge
