Happy Monday truth-seekers!  Turkey Day is t-minus three days :)  I am so excited about sweet potato casserole and dressing!!!!  What are your favorite holiday eats and treats?  This weekend, Raleigh and I started our Christmas shopping for the girls.  Toys R' Us was already so busy!!!!  If anybody else is not a fan of the holiday rush, I've got some Christmas card, book, and giving ideas that you will be sure to love:

Books

I love giveaways, especially books!  Below are three books that I'm giving away to three lucky readers.  All you have to do is leave me a comment with which book you want.  If I get more than one comment for the same book, I'll draw one winner.  These books would be great as a Christmas gift for yourself or a loved one or even a dirty Santa or office party!

Graceful is Emily Freeman's (the author of Grace for the Good Girl) new book for young women.  This would be a great gift for the teenage girl in your life!

The iBloom Team has written this great book and would be a perfect gift for the mother or woman in your life.  Who doesn't want to love their life?

The Uncontainable Truth loves to support Gospel for Asia.  If you have a heart for the people of Asia, this book and devotional would be great reads!  Dear Sister has letters of hope and encouragement and Stay Encouraged helps us with the battle of discouragement. Winner will receive both the book and the devotional.  Great for the start of a new year!

Giving

What is something you have hoped for but never received? Did you ever think someone let you down because you didn't hear from them only to later find out they had reached out in love but the communication never made it to you? 

 
Angel Tree still needs churches and individuals to sign up to bring a gift to a child this Christmas on behalf of their incarcerated parent. These parents are longing to connect with their children and have signed them up for Angel Tree in an effort to make a lasting connection and heal wounds caused by their imprisonment. As Christmas approaches, Prison Fellowship will continue to update this list of the top 50 counties with children signed-up for the Angel Tree program who have not yet been assigned to a church or sponsor group.
Water 282 is the organization that Jacob began to provide water to the villages of Zambia, Africa.  Will you please consider supporting this organization this Christmas?  Individuals/Families can make a donation or a group of friends/organization can unite and sponsor a village for $7,000.  How crazy would that be to give a whole village of Zambians - babies, children, mothers, fathers, grandparents - the gift of fresh water?
It is crazy possible - with your help.

 

So, I know that was an incredibly  long post but I hope you found at least one idea for Christmas this year.  Also, a lot of the items I featured on my November Chris10 post are from organizations that need support.  Please share the gift of giving this holiday season!

Don't forget if you want a book to leave a comment and to use our HOLLYJOLLY12 coupon code to receive 30% off your Christmas card.

Till next time, let your light shine!

Blessings, christen
