Merry Christmas, dear readers!
Isn’t this the day of days? Christmas amazes me by the sheer fact that we have a God who comes to earth to be with us, to walk with us. He spent 33 years getting to know us, our sorrows, and our doubts.
Of course He knows all and is in all.
Of course He never even needed to draw closer…
but He did.
He came to us.
Just as He comes to us every day in His Word and through our relationships with one another; as the Holy Spirit moves and does His thing changing hearts and lives.
Even in a season of grieving, even in a season of blah, even in a season of busy- that is the promise we hold tight to.
This Christmas I’d like to give you something to help you to cling to that promise. Yes, baby Jesus is the best gift, but He’s not the only gift.
Christmas Day only, please download the Kindle versions of my print studies, Think on These and Casting Stones for free.
Who doesn’t love free?
Here are the links for each book:
Think on These has 5-10 minute daily reads. It is meant to be short and sweet, but allow you to linger in the Word with questions and contemplation if you desire. It’s good for individual or group study. There are YouTube Videos to compliment your study if desired.
Casting Stones came out of a time when I was struggling and I think you can see, hear, and feel the struggle in this study of the seasons of life. This is a longer text, still with five days of study a week, but slightly longer daily reads for more contemplation. Color outside the lines! No need to follow the study each day. Pick it up, put it down, repeat.
And of course, a Happy New Year!
