I am so excited that my turn to share a message with you falls on the first Sunday of December! We love Christmas! This time of the year is, with out a doubt, the most demanding for our family. My husband is a District Manager for a retail company and this requires him to travel a lot, and around Christmas his schedule gets worse! It can be exhuasting for him, and us, because we miss him. Things like this and other demands this time of year can, if you let them, really make you lose the "Christmas Spirit". We don't want that to happen! So, when we are together we try to make it count.
We love our families and naturally want to give them everything we can. But, the most important thing we can give, is our time and to teach our children about Christ. “And we talk of Christ, we rejoice in Christ, we preach of Christ, we prophesy of Christ, and we write according to our prophecies, that our children may know to what source they may look for a remission of their sins” (2 Ne. 25:26).
This year, let's not get bogged down with shopping and going and coming. Let's remember the real reason for this Christmas season...our Savior's birth. Merry Christmas!
