The noise of the holidays can quickly drown out the true message of this season.
Gift buying overwhelms us.
Commercials pressure us.
To-do lists distract us.
Do you find yourself lost in the chaos of the season?
What we celebrate most at Christmas is that Jesus is Emmanuel, God with us. He came to be with you (Matthew 1:21-23). He is walking beside you (Psalm 16:8). He is near to you (Philippians 4:4-7). The beautiful news is that those things aren’t just true at Christmas. The hope of Christ encourages and sustains us all year long!
We have created intentional resources to cultivate that hope in your faith and family. Below are several of our favorites! Whether you are searching for that just-right gift or looking for ideas for your whole list, we hope this makes it really easy for you to find meaningful gifts for those you love.
