When I was a little girl, my Mom would play Christmas music and decorate the house to make it look like a Christmas paradise. We had lights in every plant and tree in the house. The Christmas tree had a theme every year and we always had plenty during this time of year.
My Mom was a hair dresser and her clients would always give her extra tips so we could buy yummy food and have presents under the tree. But, my Mom was never satisfied with just presents or food for us, she always baked and cooked for others.
Our home was open at Christmas to the many who had no one to share the real joy of Christmas with.

I remember watching her cook and clean late into the night – even after a long day of making others look beautiful in the salon. She still had time to do more. I pray that as my children grow, I am able to teach them the same. I want them to know that real joy came in a manger. He, our savior did not come here to be served, but to serve.
Real Joy is serving and doing all things to glorify the God of all creation – the God of my savior and to serve Him through all that we think, say or do. Real Joy comes in opening our hearts and homes to anyone who crosses our path.
Today, I want to give you something. A free Prayer journal for Moms and copywork for children of all ages to find Real Joy at christmas.
The Finding Real Joy prayer journal is similar to my first prayer journal as well as the Give Thanks Prayer Journal. While the prayer journal was created for Moms, it can be shared with your children, if you would like. (I think it would make a great family devotional).
In addition, I have created Finding Real Joy Copywork for All Ages based off of the same verses in the Prayer journal. It contains normal manuscript, cursive and lines for early learners. I pray this blesses you and your family. Most of all, I pray it helps you find real joy and brings you closer to Christ.
