Growing up, I knew Christmas was about the birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. In reality, though….it was more (for me) about receiving presents. We very rarely went to church and I can’t remember sitting down and reading the Bible. The Bible was always out in our home and after I was grown, my Mom and I shared some special times in church, worshipping together. But, not while I was growing up.
After my husband and I had our firstborn, we really wrestled with how to celebrate Christmas. We want it to be a time of joy and celebration. We also want it to be a time of learning more about our savior and serving others.
As I plan out my month of December, opportunities to share the truth about the season and or plans to serve others, I am excited about attending webinar on November 27th and begin an advent study created both – by Kerry Beck.
While you may be in the midst of prepping for Thanksgiving or perhaps you’re mapping your plans for shopping the day after, I would like to ask you a favor.
Grab a cup of coffee or tea. Sit and read a book with your child. Bask in these moments and join me on November 27th for this webinar – 5 Clues to Putting Christ Back into Your Christmas Celebration
Sign up for this Free Advent Countdown – 25 daily emails, each with an idea on preparing your children’s hearts for Christmas
I know you and your family will be blessed as you take a step back to truly remain in the moment of giving Thanks and Celebrating our Savior’s birth.
I can’t wait to see you there!
