First 15 Emmanuel with Craig Denison
My mom became a Christian when I was in elementary school, and faith was new to our family. I never saw my parents reading their Bible. And I had never heard of Advent until I was an adult. Yet when I became a mom myself, the #1 thing that transformed my life was time with God.
Today I’m chatting with Craig Dennison, the author of First15, about when God’s Word became important to him. You’ll hear how God’s Word transformed Craig’s life and why he’s dedicated to helping others draw closer to God.
Craig’s new devotional, Emmanuel, is a perfect devotional book to go through during the holidays or any part of the year. Emmanuel helps us look closer at Jesus as:
The Sacrificial King
The King of Kings
The Savior King
The Triumphant King
The Merciful King
The Just King
The Humble King
In this podcast, you’ll learn more about guided prayer and discover more about the First15 app … which is completely FREE. Mostly, I hope through this interview you’ll begin to understand that our time with God isn’t just about rituals or rules but about a relationship with a God who loves you.

About the Book:
Experience God’s peace even in the busyness of the holidays!
In what should be a time of “peace, goodwill towards men,” many simply feel no peace at all. Society today loves busyness. We love to fill our plates to the brim and find purpose in what we’re doing rather than why we’re doing it — especially during the holidays.
Yet even in the constant rush, you can hear God in the stillness, beckoning you to let him into all you’re doing and feeling that you might live abundantly with him.
We want to help you experience God’s peace by sending you our newest printed devotional, Emmanuel, as thanks for your gift below.
With each Scriptural meditation during this holiday season, you can…
- Listen to Jesus’ prayer for you,
- Awaken your heart to God’s love,
- Open your heart to the living God, and
- Feel the deep desire of God for intimacy with you.
This Christmas, find the peace God has waiting for you. Get your copy of Emmanuel below — and experience God in greater ways in the midst of the holidays!
