When God Calls the Heart at Christmas by Brian Bird & Michelle Cox {Devotional Review + Spotlight}


Celebrate Christmas in Hope Valley

Christmas truly is the most wonderful time of the year. Whether it’s in the fictional town of Hope Valley in the early 1900s or in our lives today, nothing is more profound than celebrating God’s most important gift to the world.

When God Calls the Heart at Christmas is about a celebration of faith, family, friends, and the most meaningful Yuletide traditions. Inspired by best-selling author Janette Oke and the Hallmark Channel original TV series When Calls the Heart, these twenty-five devotions not only explore “God-moments” from the series, but also commemorate favorite holiday recipes, stories, and traditions—many of them contributed by the Hearties, the beloved fans of the show.

Journey with us to Hope Valley as we focus on all the reasons for this most blessed season. As shepherds and angels learned on that holy night so long ago, when God calls the heart at Christmas, you can expect a celebration.

What a darling Christmas devotional!

When God Calls the Heart at Christmas is a beautiful book, filled to the brim with Christmas merriment. The devotional is divided into twenty-five days, or chapters, each one containing a lesson that somehow connects to the When Calls the Heart TV show, a Bible verse, a prayer, a list of related questions, a recipe, and a few Christmas traditions.

The Christmas stories and traditions were my favorite parts! Those, along with the recipes, were submitted by the Hearties, the fans of the TV show. I love Christmas and Christmas traditions, so hearing others' Christmas stories was special and sweet. <3

Between the photos, the stories, and the beautiful formatting, this book isn't one to be missed!

**I received a complimentary copy of this book from Sirens Media and BroadStreet Publishing.**

  1. Sounds like a good devotional! :)

  2. I am just so excited to read this!!! I think I'll start it on December 2. Kinda a weird day, but I was looking at all of the different chapters and it seemed like the last chapter was about after Christmas. So I figured if I start on the 2nd I'll end on the 26th... ;)

    1. Aww, that's perfect! ;D Hope you enjoy it! <33
