Many families will face this Christmas with an empty chair at the family gathering, a family…

The spirit of Christmas is who you were created to be

So often around this time of year we hear about the “spirit of Christmas”, which is a reference to how people seem to care more for one another. We are a little nicer to strangers, a little more generous to those in need and our moods are often more optimistic and hopeful. But what if I told you that’s how God created you to be…EVERYDAY.…

Tired of keeping all those Christmas traditions?

I used to go all out for the holiday season decorating, cooking, and making homemade gifts. I’d send out cards with yearly letters and photos, make videos for the grandparents, and shop for unique and well thought out presents.

Treasure hunt

Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord. (Luke 2:1-20) One of my son’s favorite games is “Treasure Hunt.” I hide something in the yard or the house and draw out a map for him to find it.  X marks the spot where the treasure should be.  It is so much fun to watch him run around, count off paces, work through…
