How will you share the gift of Jesus Christ this Christmas?
One of my favorite ways to do this is by sharing Christmas stories with my children. Right now I am using a simple advent calendar full of stories from LDS writers, compiled by Amy Jones over here at LDS Holistic Living. Go to the right of the page and click on the button that says “Download Calendar.” I usually read the thought and story during one of our mealtimes. I downloaded it onto my Kindle so that makes it easier for me to keep track of. On some mornings we also sing the song as part of our Opening Time for homeschool. The calendar also has an activity to do, if you feel up to it.
I hope you also #sharethegift by sharing the above video through your social media outlets. No matter our problems or challenges, we each have the gift of Jesus Christ available to us. Without him, we would have no hope. With Him, we have all the hope that is possible, to rise above our current circumstances and have eternal life and happiness!
Here is another Christmas advent that tells the story of the Nativity, a little bit each day, by one of my other favorite bloggers.
If you are up to more high energy ideas of Advent activities, here are a grundel of them, collected by Jordan Page over at one my new favorite blogs, funcheaporfree.com.

I will also be sharing some links to other Christmas stories I find during the season. Merry Christmas!
