My Christmas Gift For You

Christmas - 2015

At this special time of year, families throughout the Christian world gather to celebrate Christmas. A celebration of joy, peace, and love. A celebration full of tradtion.

         What have been some of your favorite Christmas traditions, and why?

Watch This Awesome Nativity Video:  “The Nativity” – 8 minutes

·               How does this make you feel?
·               What are your thoughts about Christmas?
·               What is most important at Christmas for you?

·             How do we bring ‘light’ to those around us?
·                  What do Pres. Uchtdorf’s thoughts of making this a time to repent, be grateful,     forgive mean to you?
·                 What gift has the Savior given that resonates with you?
·                 What can we give to the Savior?

Watch this Mormon Tabernacle Choir Video: “What Shall We Give” – 5 minutes 

·            What gifts were given to the Savior in this video? 
·            The way we live. How we treat strangers & family. Bringing Christ into our homes. Teaching our children.  – These are some of the greatest gifts we can give the Savior. These are gifts we can give all year round.

President Thomas S. Monson: “In our busy lives, with ever so many other things competing for our attention, it is essential that we make a conscious, committed effort to bring Christ into our lives and into our homes. And it is vital that we, like the Wise Men from the East, remain fixed upon His star and “come to worship him.”

The first gift of Christmas was a simple gift given by a father to all of his children, to us. He gave us his son, the Christ. He is the gift.

This Christmas season, let us not forget this great gift. Let us show our gratitude for Christ, the greatest gift of all.

I love each of you very much.

Merry Christmas 2015

I love beautiful stories that share what Christmas is about....

The Christmas Coat

I love the lights on Temple Square...

I love that Paige & Jacob braved the cold with me to see the lights!

And that Jacob stopped by for a visit a few weeks later to see our tree...ok to get his car, but he got to see the tree too!

And I love our Savior. With all my heart.

I hope this Christmas finds each of you filled with the Spirit of Christ and pondering on what He means to you.

 “Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid” (John 14:27).
