II Chronicles 7:14

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

I challenge You...

To make Christmas about JESUS this year MORE than it is about gifts!
This is what our family is going to do to keep Christ the center of Christmas. We are going to build (as a family) a wooden manger to put beside our Christmas tree this year. We will probably get some hay to put inside it and maybe even a boy babydoll. We will purchase some special gifts to give to OTHERS this year that we will put inside or beside the manger. How many of you will do this with us?

what a great idea! we would love to do something like this, however we lack the skills of possibly making the manger, so we might need some help there.
that is awesome! i know what you mean, it seems that every year the gifts get more extravagant and the whole meaning of CHRISTmas seems to get forgotten.
thank you for posting such a great idea.
