A New Christmas Book and Inspiring Words from a Beauty Vlogger: This Month's Zondervan Books!

I have to confess that I have an addiction to collecting Christmas picture books. I began back in the day when I was a teacher in elementary school, before I ever had children of my own. Of course my habit increased when I had children of my own.

Because of this particular love of Christmas picture books, I was especially happy about one of the Zondervan books that was available this month. I also found a book that I thought would interest by daughters- the YouTube lovers. In this post, I'm sharing both of these.

Twas the Evening of Christmas

This adorable picture book tells the story of Jesus' birth with rhyming words and the rhythm of "Twas the Night Before Christmas." The story follows tired Mary and Joseph as they go to spend the night in the stable, through the birth of Jesus, and the angels' announcement to the shepherds. 

This is a beautiful book, and kids will enjoy the rhyme and rhythm of the story. I enjoyed it, but it did violate one of my pet peeves about the Christmas story. At the end of the book, the wisemen arrive- three, all come to the stable to see the baby. This isn't particularly Biblical, as the Bible says the men came to a house to see the "young child," not a stable to see a baby.

Other than the wisemen issue, this is a great book, and I'm glad to add it to my collection. You can find the book on the  Zondervan site here.

Your Own Beautiful

Chelsea Crockett is a beauty vlogger and the author of Your Own Beautiful. She has a YouTube channel- BeautyLiciousInsider . In this book she shares her own personal testimony as well as beauty tips, relationship advice, and encourages young girls to have their own personal relationship with Christ. The book also has pictures of Chelsea as well as short sections with titles like "Five Ways to Spread Positivity Online" or "Playing Up Your Beauty Strengths."

I love that a girl who has a platform and millions of followers talks openly and honestly about her faith in Christ and the importance of that faith in her life. Young girls who follow Chelsea will have the opportunity to learn about Christ and the beauty of a relationship with Him.

I always like to see a celebrity- in any field- use her platform to share with her followers about her relationship with God. And sharing the message that it's important to be beautiful inside and out. You can find Your Own Beautiful on the Zondervan site here.
