25 Days, 26 Ways {Book Review}

This post may contain affiliate or advertiser links. Read my full disclosure policy here.

image Not too long ago I read a few fiction books by Ace Collins {Farraday Road and Swope’s Ridge} and got completely hooked on his fiction. Enough that I am anxiously waiting for the conclusion of the trilogy.

For the Christmas season, Ace Collins has released a new book that focuses on ways to put the JOY back in Christmas: 25 Days, 26 Ways To Make This Your Best Christmas Ever. Each of the twenty-six chapters in the book shares ideas for looking at holiday traditions, frustrations, and expectations and making Christmas what it should be ~ a time of peace and focus on Christ.

I’ve been reading the book daily and love the insights and perspective that Collins offers. It’s been a great encouragement and way to refocus my perspective each morning. At the end of each chapter there is a little ‘shortcut’ that provides an idea on how you can apply the topic of the day. Chapters cover topics on the meaning of old Christmas carols, the significance behind the Magi's gifts to Jesus, Advent, and preserving the holidays. The daily readings are quick and a great start to my morning quiet time. This is one book that I will be keeping handy each Christmas season for a reminder on the important things in life.
