Make reading “The Blessing Nisser” by Kirstie Marx a holiday tradition in your family.

Are you looking for a totally unique way to build a servant’s heart in your children this Christmas? Let me introduce you to the Blessing Nisser. The Blessing Nisser are mythical creatures who delight in teaching humans how to love and serve others. Pour a cup of tea, gather the children around, and wander through this heart-warming tale. Follow Charlotte on her journey as she and the Blessing Nisser share the love of Christ by serving a hard-hearted brother and a grumpy old man down the street. Along the way, you and your family will be immersed in the “hygge” (warmth) of a Danish Christmas. Drawing from my childhood memories of Christmas in Denmark, we started using the Nisser in our own home, and we all were richly rewarded for the effort. Not only did we bless others, but it changed our hearts, too.


Your passport to a Danish Christmas comes in a package that contains a 48 page illustrated book, and two Nisser that your children can make their own and a set of 32 cards. Twenty-two of the cards have blessing ideas, 5 are blank for you to add your own ideas and traditions and 5 say “You have been loved by the Blessing Nisser”. Additional cards can be purchased in the online store. 

 

What readers are saying:

“This sweet story weaves together three of my favorite things: Christmas, learning about traditions from other countries, and encouragement to actively love others in gratitude to God, Who loves us!  How I wish I’d had this book when my children were young, but maybe it’s not too late for the “Blessing Nisser” to make an appearance at our house this December!  I encourage you to make this your new Christmas book, learn about the holiday in Denmark, and become the “Blessing Nisser” in the lives of those around you – all December (and all year) long!  ‘And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works.’ Hebrews 10:24

“Kirstie’s children’s book is a reflection of her own experiences and heart.  Written from a deep desire to see Christ proclaimed and others blessed with the unconditional love of the Savior, she introduces us to the Blessing Nisser.  These mythical characters teach children how to love unconditionally and bless others, reminding them that “it’s more blessed to give than receive”, and it’s the best way to the heart.  The Blessing Nisser will be a Christmas tradition of blessing others that your children will want to follow, unlocking the love of Christ to a darkened world.  A wonderful Christmas tradition for a lifetime.”

Here is something new and exciting for your children this Christmas season–the Blessing Nissers.  While they are cute and whimsical, at the same time, they present a powerful message about Jesus and His teaching to love and serve others.  In addition, the story is interwoven with Danish Christmas traditions, Danish history, and geography.  The Nissers and the heroine, Charlotte, engage children on many levels while they read this delightful and unforgettable tale.  The story combines learning and doing by showing children how to serve and love others in tangible, easy, and fun ways–which is, after all, the very heart of Christ and Christmas.  So, if you are looking for something to bring your family closer to the heart of Christmas, this is it.
