Now that we are in November it’s time to start pulling those Christmas decorations out! Actually, I haven’t gone that far yet but I am definitely starting to gear up for Christmas. While I love all the lights, trees, decorations, gifts and parties I always struggle to keep the meaning of Christmas at the center of it all. Now that we have kids this is especially important to me that they understand Christmas isn’t just about them receiving gifts but instead us celebrating the birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus.

I was so excited when I met Natalie, the creator of The Christmas Star from Afar, at the Declare Conference this summer. I fell in LOVE with this game and the story behind it and we decided to partner up to spread the word about this amazing game!

Here’s how it works:

  • At the beginning of December you read the story book that comes with the game to your children. This explains the meaning of Christmas. the 3 wise men and the story of Jesus birth. book-websize-1
  • Every day has a new Bible verse(listed in the back of the book) for you to share with your kids.
  • Every night you hide the star in a new location in your home for the kids to find. When they find it they move the 3 wise men to it.
  • On Christmas morning the star is found above the manger with baby Jesus.

I pulled the game out today to show my kids and they asked if we can start now! I am so excited to do this with my kids this year and think every family needs to own one of these games to pass on the teaching of the real meaning of Christmas.
