Post of the week from these parts here:

What You Need to Get Through Your Darkest Days of the Year & Light Your Way from Advent to Christmas

Sometimes you just need a tradition
that somehow changes your condition… the conditions of everything.

to the tradition of Advent & Wanting & Waiting for More of God…

these are the traditions — that change the conditions of everything:

are you ready — *HE. IS. COMING.* He! is! Coming!

Let’s have the Greatest Christmas and Check out our whole library of free printable ornaments, cards, gift tags, gifts boxes, Sticky Notes for Your Soul, Advent Calendars and more — our gift to you for The Greatest Christmas

So… how about an evening that’s like a gift just for you

where you feel the wonder of CHRISTmas again?

Think candles.

Think music that sounds like the voice of an angel: with Dove Award Winner for Best New Artist of the Year, Ellie Holcomb. Think gloriously, powerful moving words:  with spoken word poet, Amena Brown.
Think of an unforgettable Christmas evening Unwrapping the Greatest Gift — with this farm girl & one of her farm girls. Think an evening  lit with the warming gift you want most: Jesus.

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

We’d love to meet you & have The Greatest Christmas!
