    I think one of the most important things for us belonging to Christ is to remember that CHIRSTmas is every day if we have Jesus. More importantly teaching and living out that example before our children. So when they are asked by others “Are you excited about santa is coming?” children respond with the truth about the greatest Gift ever given!

    Recently we had dentists check ups and the hygienist asked our kids if they went trick or treating to which they replied (the 4 yo did) “we don’t do that, its sassy” And then followed up with sharing what they just learned while listening to John MacArthur on the way to the appointment! I was in awe of how free/bold my children were in sharing the love and truth of God’s word with our hygienist.

    I also think it’s a great idea to be the example and teach our children that we can give and be a blessing to others all year long. We had ordered pizza earlier in the year and our daughter asked what the little kid with the magnifying glass was on the box and we explained to them about St. Jude’s. How they help children that are very sick and they can go to the hospital to hopefully get better and that people give so they can get better. My daughter said ” I have money in my piggy bank”, and my son said the same thing. Later they emptied their change into a bag (all 3 even the almost 2yo) and we cashed in at the bank and sent St. Jude the gift along with a note. (one of the tellers at the bank even gave a extra dollar to their total as she was touched as to why our children were cashing in their change)

    There is nothing sweeter than seeing The Lord working in your children’s hearts! It is a priceless gift! We desire our children to give to others as The Lord leads and prompts their precious hearts, not only at Christmas, but all year 🙂

      Wow Michelle! That is amazing. What awesome kids you have, and what a wonderful feeling it must be as a mother to see their hearts for God and others at such a young age. I love hearing what you are doing with them. That is so inspiring!
