Don’t wait until Christmas Day to celebrate
the real meaning of Christmas.

My STORY “How I Changed the Way I Celebrate Christmas”

Every year I would anticipate getting up early on Christmas Day morning to read the Nativity story in Luke 2 and have a special spiritual quiet time thinking about the spiritual meaning of Christmas. But it didn’t happen.

Instead Christmas Day EVERYONE got up early and I was tied up for 2 hours making individual Norwegian “Tynepanakage” (thin pancakes) for each person.

The day continued filled with excitement, stockings, opening presents, and finally I got to bed happy, tired, and feeling like I missed the whole spiritual meaning of Christmas! Ugh.

I felt like a failure at honoring the Christ child and the spiritual meaning oft Christmas.


Finally after years of this repeated failure I felt led to write a booklet where I would start December 1 with a verse a day leading up to Christmas Day.

Ah, that year my heart was prepared. It worked!

The result? My Booklet…
