Today we are going to talk with Barbara Reaoch, joining us from Minneapolis, Minnesota in the US.
Barbara Reaoch is an author of several books including “Why Christmas”. Barb is also my sister-in-law, she lived in Michigan before moving to Cape Town, South Africa, to teach Bible Study Fellowship classes. There she also worked as a volunteer with the Rafiki Foundation to train young women in job and life skills.
Barb what made you write Why Christmas?
With my grandchildren far away, I began to write Bible studies for them to bridge the distance. I drew my books, “Why Christmas" and “Why Easter” from those studies.
“Why Christmas” came from “Why do we celebrate Christmas? Most children do not know the true answer to that question or why God sent Jesus to live on earth. “Why Christmas” is a helpful daily devotional with Scripture reading, memory verse, Christmas carol and questions to direct a child’s heart towards God. The readings, which begin on the first day of December, are Biblical, short, and effective. Colorful illustrations by Carol McCarty illuminate the events of the incarnation. This book will provide parents with the assistance they desire for leading their child to the Christ of Christmas.
Barb has written other Christmas books as well.
“A better than Anything Christmas” an advent devotional offering a fresh way to prepare for Christmas.
“A Jesus Christmas” is the second Advent devotional for families.
