Now, before you hear from my Proverbs 31 sister Micca Campbell on today’s post, I have two bits of exciting news!
First, visit my other site Untangling Christmas where this week you could win a Kindle Fire. I am serious! A generous donor is giving one away to one gal who Facebooks, blogs or tweets about our ebook.
And second, any of you ever watch the TV show Full House?
Remember the adorable D.J. Tanner who was clever and always had the cutest boyfriends?
Well, actress Candace Cameron Bure, who played D.J., is a grow-up woman who loves God, hubby & family—in that order.
She is launching a fabulous new online magazine today called RooMag that will provide women with ideas, tips and inspiration as wives and mothers and give them a place for online connection and community with other women.
I was so honored to be asked to be one of the monthly contributors to the magazine. (Yes, I’m still pinching myself!)
Check out this one-minute video by Candace telling about this site that launches today! (And be sure to catch her new movie that airs on this Sunday, December 4th called The Heart Of Christmas– at 7 & 9pm EST on GMC TV.)
Now, for day two of our 12 Days of Christmas….here’s Micca Campbell!
Micca Campbell’s favorite Christmas food is her Granny’s homemade dumplings. She is looking forward to spending Christmas this year as the great aunt of Braden and Selah.
Visit Micca’s blog today for easy ways to share the gospel with your friends and family. Here she is:
One of my favorite Christmas memories is when my niece and I led Cody to Christ on Christmas day!
That year my eldest son’s friend, Cody, joined us for Christmas dinner along with other friends and family. As the evening ended, Cody put on his coat and then shouted, “Merry Christmas,” while waving good-bye with his hand high in the air.
Then, he paused and fiddled with his jacket as if he were hesitating.
It was six months until graduation. After that, Cody would employ to Iraq after his training.
“Are you excited about the joining the Army?” I asked.
“I wish I had never joined. If I don’t graduate, I don’t have to go. So I’ve decided not to finish school,” Cody said as he shuffled his feet back and forth.
I sighed and shared with Cody, “peace comes in impossible situations when we rely on God and trust Him with your future.”
Stunned, Cody asked. “In order to rely on God, don’t I first have to …uh what’s the word, get saved?”
“You’ve never trusted Christ as you personal Lord and Savior?” I asked.
“No, I haven’t,” Cody said shaking his head back and forth. My niece and I escorted Cody into a quite room where we explained about the love and forgiveness of Jesus Christ. Cody accepted the peace of God and his countenance changed right in front of our face.
With excitement, Cody announced to our guest, “I just gave my heart and life to Jesus!” Cheers erupted and the Spirit of Christmas filled the house in a deeper way than before.
Cody’s new birth was a Christmas miracle. It reminded me of the miracle that took place that holy night over 2000 years ago.
That miracle is why we celebrate. Because Christ came, all people can experience the miracle of new life.
May the Spirit of Christmas fill your home this year with fresh awe and wonder!
