Resources for a Christ-Centered Christmas | Bible studies, devotionals, gift ideas, and more!
Happy Advent Season, Friends!
As we approach Christmas, we take the time to reflect on the arrival of Christ and the significance of this season. As we enter this season, we encourage all our sisters to set apart time to connect with the Lord and center ourselves on Christ.
The holidays can be a joyous and gracious time. We also recognize they can be difficult and stressful for many. As we enter this season, there are many resources out there that can assist us with prioritizing time with the Lord.
