Please don’t throw tomatoes but I’ve never been a fan of the elf on the shelf craze. Maybe it was all the work involved; more importantly because of the deception. I raised my first two children with the nagging conviction that they might believe Jesus Christ was a lie when they discovered Santa was not real.

It’s such a blessing when you come across someone who’s willing to place the focus back on Jesus and all that surrounds his birth and purpose.  The Angel on Assignment is the perfect alternative to Santa’s elf.  I received a complimentary copy of the book from the author. Whether or not the elf is part of your tradition, you have the chance to win a copy of the book, too. Keep reading…

The book is a terrific way to introduce angels and their purpose to a young child. It teaches about the reality of angels, both during Jesus’ early days and present day as our protectors.

The book even touches on salvation; however, I do suggest that you express the importance of repentance, which is not addressed as a necessary part of salvation.

My favorite part of the book was to make our own elf, uh, I mean, angel to display during this Christmas season. In the back of the book are ideas for making an angel with your kiddo. My angel is pretty basic but I enjoyed the time with my son.

    I love this. Even though I grew up LOVING Santa and am sad we won’t be doing it with our children, I have never really liked the Elf on the Shelf thing. I’ve been looking for fun, Christ-centered alternatives to introduce to our children. We’ll be doing an Advent calendar this year with scripture readings. Now I just have to make it!

    Our family reads the account of Jesus’ birth from Matthew and Luke, in the days leading up to December 25th. We also follow along with Focus on the Family’s countdown, which includes a different character from the Christmas Story to read about and add to a poster.

    My son has been saying he’s scared at night and I’ve been telling him about his guardian angel. He would love this!
