Christmas Book Countdown & Bible Reading Plan {+ $500 Cash Giveaway for 2 Winners!}

A Christmas tradition that is Christ-centered, fun for the kids, AND promotes reading? It’s like a homeschool mom’s dream come true! A Christmas book countdown is a fantastic way to create memories with your kids this holiday season. I’ve got a fun printable that combines this tradition with a Bible reading plan so you can focus on Christ AND enjoy fun read-alouds!

*** Hey! There’s not only a FREEBIE in this post but a 2-winner, $500 cash giveaway you can enter! Scroll down to find out more. ***

Enjoy this Christ-centered Christmas book countdown that includes a Bible reading plan!


For the book-loving family, this is a simple and meaningful activity that your kids will remember for a lifetime. Collect some Christmas books and wrap up 25 of them! Print the tags and label each gift. Every day, the kids can unwrap a book to read!

Snuggle up on the couch together with your Bible and the day’s book. Read the scripture passage together and discuss, and say a prayer of thanks, praying the scripture over your children. Then have fun reading the Christmas book they unwrapped!

Don’t have enough books? No problem. Here are some ideas. 

  • Audiobooks to listen to during a meal, during quiet time, or in the car
  • Fold and staple card stock together into a booklet and make a Christmas book together
  • Use digital books by taping the title of the ebook (or a copy of the ebook cover) to the front of another book or an envelope and wrapping that
  • Buy some great Christmas books to add to your stash (we get a few a year – here’s a list to start with or you can find Christian kids Christmas books on Amazon)

It’s hard to believe that Christmas is upon us once again. 2018 has flown right by and the holiday season is in full swing. With Christmas being the season of giving, I’ve gotten together with some pretty awesome bloggers to give TWO families some CASH in the 5th annual Christmas Blessings Giveaway – $500 cash (delivered via Paypal).

We hope that the prize will be a blessing to the winning families and help them to fulfill their kids’ Christmas wishes, pay off some bills, or to save for a rainy day. Whatever the money ends up being used for, our prayer is that it helps to lessen any financial burden and/or fills a specific need.

There are lots of entry options in the Rafflecopter form below – the more you enter, the better your chance of winning! I know it can seem tedious and time consuming to go through all the entries, but isn’t a chance at $500 worth it? I think it is! Plus, all of these generous bloggers donated their own money toward the cash prizes and this giveaway wouldn’t be possible without them. So I hope you’ll take the time to check out each one. Who knows, maybe you will find your new favorite blog.

The giveaway will run from Monday, November 12th through Wednesday, November 21st (ends at 11:59pm EST).

  10. If I was to win the $500 it would be a tremendous blessing to my family. We are a family of soon to be 4 living off of my husband’s income.

  20. $500 would help us buy gifts for our sons, pay off a debt, and give to special projects at church.

  21. My family has been displaced due to the Paradise, California fire and they believe they have lost their homes. If I won the $500, I would send the money to them. I know it is not much relative to what they have lost, but it might help a little bit, especially around the holidays.

  22. This would bless my family greatly as our income is slowed at this more weather insecure time of year.

  23. We could really use Christmas money this year. My boys are getting bigger and hand me downs are all getting worn out. They could use some new clothes.

To whomever receives bless these wonderful people and count your many blessings

  24. Money is incredibly tight for our family this year. For most of the year my husband has been out of work. This money would allow us to buy our kids Christmas presents and get the Christmas Feast that they are used to. It would be such a Christmas Blessing for us.

  25. If I win I would buy my mom and my niece and nephew some awesome gifts and it would help with the food as well. I hate how broke I always get around the holidays

  28. If I won I would put it in my daughter’s college fund.

  29. This is really cool! I love Christmas ideas and extra money would be wonderful!

  30. $500 would be a huge blessing, as we are expecting our 4th “blessing” (child) shortly after Christmas. We would probably use part of it for Christmas gifts, some to share with folks in need at our church, and maybe some for meals out once baby arrives!

  31. Hi Tuana! I just want to thank you so much for sharing your tips and wisdom on organizing homeschool and homemaking life. I was able to catch one of your sessions on loop scheduling in the online conference this past summer and It’s been a real game changer in my home this year. Honestly, I felt like I was just trudging along through homeschooling these past couple years and then, to top it off, we welcomed our 5th baby to the bunch in July. There were days before starting school this year that I just cried because I had know idea how it was all supposed to work with a newborn. Anyway, with the the help of your encouragement and tips, it’s been a year of break through for me. I’m still trying to tailor this “loop idea” to our specific needs, but it’s a beautiful thing to finally have a strategy in place that makes sense for my brain. So, Anyway, thank you for taking the time, out of your busy life, to share and encourage other moms like me.

    1. Hi Briana! I am SO incredibly blessed to hear it has helped you as much as it has helped me! Hope you have a wonderful homeschool year. 🙂

  32. We’ve had so many unexpected emergencies this year so our Christmas fund is non existent. I would use this for making my boys’ and friends’ Christmas a little brighter.

  33. I would like to use it to purchase gifts, food, and winter clothing for a family in need. My daughter is a school teacher, and she has a student in her class with 2 siblings and they are being raised by their grandmother. I would like to help them.

  34. I love reading! The free giveaway of money would be helpful too, but the list of Christmas Book Countdown is what brought me to this page. Thnak you!

  35. With an extra $500 I would buy something special for the family and use the rest to help with holiday food.

  36. I’d like to use part of it to give others in anonymous ways.
    Some I’d probably save back.

  37. Thanks for this fun opportunity to not only win a prize, but be introduced to some new resources!

  38. I’d love to be blessed with this so that we may bless others this holiday season.

  39. If I won the $500, I would use it to give to a local charity.

  40. Thank you for offering this awesome give away! It would be such a blessing to my family, my husband recently started his own business and $500 would be a God send by helping to provide Christmas presents for our 5 children.

  41. If I was blessed with $500 I would give to further the gospel and buy some more plexus supplements to share with my family and friends who need them because they have been life changing for me and I wanna help others.
