As Bella gets older is very important to us that she know the real reason for Christmas. We live in a society nowadays that celebrates everything and I couldn’t love it more, but we tend to forget the reason behind the day off or in this case the reason behind the gifts!
We have been very open with her about our beliefs as a family and what she is to do in church and more importantly outside of church and in school. Just last week she came home and told us her friend was mad at her because she told her Jesus is not dead. Apparently her friend believes that Jesus is dead and Bella responded that He was alive and in her heart and that at night He comes out and walks inside our home to take care of it. I don’t know where she got the last part from but it makes me very very happy that she is able to fully understand that Jesus is always with us.
That being said, she is 4 and the glitter of gifts speaks to her more than anything. This reminds us, even more, why we HAVE to teach her the REAL reason we celebrate and if you are like us this post is for you! We made a list of things we want to do to teach her just that and how you can do it too!
I hope you enjoy this list!
