What’s a good Christmas gift for my sister’s family who has 3 kids?
Great question. Seriously.
The answer to this question can also work for those who have friends with children, grandparents looking for something for their kids’ family, teachers wanting to get something for families of kids in their classroom, Sunday School teachers wanting to get something for families of the kids in their class, etc.
In short – this question works if you are looking for a gift for anyone with kids.
I would look no further than Sally Lloyd-Jones’ The Jesus Storybook Bible.
You can get the hard cover version at Amazon here for $10.47.
The paperback version is here at Amazon for $10.79.
If you want one for your own family on your electronic device, you can order the Kindle version here for $9.95.
[Amazon sells the Spanish version here for $13.54. GREAT way to be intentional with some Hispanics in town!]
Why do I recommend this?
First, kids love it! I can testify.
Second, it presents the ‘big picture’ of the Bible in the most incredible way. The subtitle of the book is “Every Story Whispers His Name.” Lloyd-Jones does, in my opinion, a masterful job of showing how all the major stories/themes in the Bible point to Jesus – all in a way that even a child can understand!
Third, if the family you are buying this for is a believer – they will be enriched.
Fourth, if the family you are buying this for is an unbeliever – it will lead to further conversations. Even if they don’t read it, it is a small way to be intentional with them.
So go ahead, click one of the links above and get your Christmas shopping done. You’ll be glad you did and those who receive the gift will be grateful.
And, in case you’re wondering, if you’ve already given several thousand to the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering, I like pretty much anything from here. 🙂
