Good Christmas devotional

Overall, I liked the devotional. The writer was thoughtful and made some interesting points. As far as the writing goes, my only problems were 1) the day there was a story instead of a lesson, because the story was clearly going for a "no room at the inn" theme, but just came off as confusing and worrisome with the characters involved (no family, pregnant lady, or children, just a creepy ex-boyfriend). And 2) I was disappointed the devotional ended on Twelfth Night and didn't end at Epiphany, since it claimed to go all through Christmastide.

Regarding the production, the reader had a very nice, pleasant voice. However, it doesn't work with a devotional written by a man who makes references to participating in all-male events, and similar comments that don't match the reader. I don't understand why they didn't get a male reader, there are plenty of pleasant male readers out there.
