Boys cracked up over this one: a competition like no other?

Come Exhale This Christmas? (!!)

So our family talked. We prayed.

And we wondered if there was some crazy, beautiful, unforgettable way to make a space to feel the wonder of Christmas again? An evening that was an island of relief & grace & beautiful things
An evening that invites you into the essence of Christmas? That invites you to become the essence of Christmas?
so… (!!)
Come into the warmth this Christmas with two of the most creatively breathtaking artists I know, 2014 Dove Award Winner for Best New Artist of the Year, Ellie Holcomb, and internationally renowned spoken word poet, Amena Brown — and this farm girl with one or two of her farm girls — & we’ll circle around for a singular Christmas evening to long be remembered…
Because it whispered and lit with the warming gift we want most: Jesus.

Amena, Ellie & us farm girls, we’re so excited! Do we get to exhale with you?

Hey Soul? You know that voice in your head that says you’re not good enough, smart enough, fast enough, creative enough?

You just need to turn to it & say it real clear: ENOUGH.

Enough already — because you’re enough already in Him, & in Him, you’ve got enough grace for impossible things today, enough strength to do the hard things today, enough wisdom to know the way that’s meant just for you & no one else.

So just go ahead & let it play like the perfect little number in your head today:
“He makes me more than enough for this, gives me more than enough for this, & we already know how this race works out, it’s already done, finished, there was more. than. enough. & it’s WON
You can count on it as sure & gentle as your own heartbeat today:

Jesus doesn’t yell at you like a Life Sergeant: “Come on, Get it done.”

Jesus comes beside you like a Life Savior & whispers: “Come to Me, It Is Finished.”

Go slow. Be God-struck. Grant grace. Live Truth.

Give Thanks. Love well. Re – joy, re- joy, ‘re- joys’ again
