"CHRISTmas" by Stacey Wooddell Imbimbo

Kyle and I just finished tucking the three kids into bed after coming home from enjoying some spectacular Christmas lights.
December is great….but it is even extra special with kids.
There are so many fun family traditions that we have adopted for our family.
The tree decorating, crafts, watching The Grinch, making sugar cut cookies, and playing with the Veggie Tales nativity set is among their favorites.  
In the midst of the glitter, snowmen, and jingle bells….I want this time of year to be about CHRIST!
As parents, our hearts desire is to teach our children the real reason we celebrate this beautiful holiday. The importance of having a real personal relationship with the Lord taking precedence over all.
Seize every teachable moment this month, Christmastime is a huge window of opportunity.
For example…
Kyle hung lights outside yesterday, our sweet neighbor Sue came over and Kyle just mentioned about how we love to put lights on our house because Jesus is the light of the world. John 1:4
Read Luke 2 as a family, make it come alive.  We like to reenact this story with our Little People nativity, different voices and all.
Before you pass out presents, remind your precious children that we give gifts because God gave us the GREATEST gift on Christmas morning.  John 3:16
Enjoy this month…point to Jesus every opportunity that you get!
