Topic: Book Reviews
For the past couple of years, as a father, I've really been trying to guide my family to focus on the Lord during the holiday season. During Thanksgiving, we have been concentrating on the true reason for Thanksgiving and not the commercialized reason. During the Christmas holidays, we have been finding a way to celebrate advent together. When the opportunity came up to review TruthTats:The Christmas Story, I was anxious to try it out. What a unique way to celebrate advent. I can't wait until this Christmas season to really try it with my kids. Read all about it below.
It is time for a FIRST Wild Card Tour book review! If you wish to join the FIRST blog alliance, just click the button. We are a group of reviewers who tour Christian books. A Wild Card post includes a brief bio of the author and a full chapter from each book toured. The reason it is called a FIRST Wild Card Tour is that you never know if the book will be fiction, non~fiction, for young, or for old...or for somewhere in between! Enjoy your free peek into the book!
You never know when I might play a wild card on you!

Truth Tats: The Christmas Story
Celebrating the Season of Advent with Truth Tats
Designed just for the season, Christmas Truth Tats present a new way of telling the story of Christâs birth. Truth Tats are temporarily on your skin, permanently on your heart.
This is a five week program leading up to Christmas day, each packet of Truth Tats includes a family devotional booklet that kicks off each memory scripture of the week. The twenty accompanying Scripture tattoos are a visual way to continually applying and memorize Godâs word. Each week opens with a set of four identical Scripture tattoo designs so that each family member can have his or her own tattoo! Week two, there is a new Scripture for memorization and four new tattoo designs, again identical designs so each person is memorizing the same Scripture.
For over 1,000 years Christians worldwide have been celebrating Advent, a time of spiritual preparation for the birth of Jesus Christ. The word âadventâ comes from the Latin adventus meaning âcoming towardâ. So it is entirely appropriate that the four weeks prior to Christmas we will be preparing our hearts for His Advent.
Truth Tats are a unique way to celebrate the season as well as to âshow and tellâ Godâs word to others. This is ideal for the classroom, family devotion time, and in personal Scripture memorization
