The Christmas Story
Each year our family—babies to grown ups—gather around the tree while my husband reads the Christmas story. Add this reading to your Christmas morning and give the best gift of all.
Merry & Bright
With a bit of preparation and forethought, your Christmas celebration can be both simple and meaningful. Small details, like the ones here, go a long way in creating a home full of peace and joy.
How Sweet It Is
Good things come in small packages—especially if the gifts inside are creamy chocolate truffles, chewy salted caramels and other delicious homemade treats. Make several batches, then wrap them in pretty packaging like ours.
How To Stay On Track
Corporate parties, family get-togethers and other holiday gatherings mean lots of festive food and cocktails that can put a damper on even the most-seasoned dieter’s efforts. By taking a different approach this season, you can enjoy your favorite foods.
4 Ways to Celebrate Fall
Activities to celebrate cool days and colorful vistas of fall.
Pops of Color
Flowers are a Glory to behold. Which is the most beautiful? Peonies with their glorious watercolor petals? Ranunculus blooms with their vibrant, tightly layered designs? Or even intricate protea—otherworldly assemblages of tiny florets? Each is unique and treasured by the Designer, their details a symbol of His artistry and love. Yet these are only flowers. How much more artistry do you think God has bestowed upon you, sculpted in the beauty of His image?
Fresh and Light
Gather the neighbors, the couple from down the block or the single guy at work to enjoy a flavorful outdoor supper together. The recipes are easy—make them ahead and have the salmon ready for the grill—so everyone can relax under evening stars and savor good food and fellowship.
Hosting an afternoon tea party can be a wonderful way to reflect God’s love through the gift of hospitality. We open our homes to others with a servant’s heart, ministering to them and providing fellowship. Creating a beautiful setting and providing yummy treats need not be too labor-intensive. After all, the focus is on the people. This party is both gracious and easy.
