Merry Christmas


"Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord." (Luke 2: 10 - 11)

Some say Christ wasn’t born on December 25th. They claim Christians took the date from a Roman holiday to rival the pagan feasts that took place during the Winter Solstice. This occasion honored a new age brought by the sun. Depending on location, the Winter Solstice occurs on or around December 25th. However, it’s not the date we celebrate. It’s Christ’s life, His Gospel of love and sacrifice.

 “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.” (John 3: 16 – 17)

“…They will condemn him to death and will turn him over to the Gentiles to be mocked and flogged and crucified. On the third day he will be raised to life.” (Matthew 20: 18 - 19)

Christ’s gift to us—eternal life!



“Where, O death, is thy victory... ’’(I Corinthians 15:55)

Christ lives today!

“…And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” (Matthew 28: 20)

Christmas is when we open our hearts to Him.

Celebrate the birth!

Honor the name, CHRIST, our Savior!


Sing it! Say it! Praise it! Shout it!

Linda Shares a Devotional based on a passage from Hosea
Hosea Chapter 12 talks about Jacob's journey, how God called him and blessed him though he'd been a deceiver, how he wrestled with the angel until he submitted.

Jacob's family was riddled with strife. With two wives, sisters who obviously had serious jealousy issues, and two concubines who squabbled as well, and twelve sons who fought continuously. So fierce was there jealousy, they plotted to murder their little brother. Joseph's story is familiar. God used the dysfunction of a family to save a nation. Family rife is as old as Cain and Abel and sometimes with just as serious consequences.

In Hosea’s Heart, my main character, Aubrey Beaumont, worried for his children because of his addicted wife’s choices. Darlene became an overachiever, Paul excelled in golf and sought a…

June shares one of her favorite Bible verses and a delicious recipe to nourish us body and soul.
"For I am convinced that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities, nor things present nor things to come, not powers, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord." Romans 8:38-39

Hi Pamela, first, tell us a little about yourself.

Thanks for having me Gail! I am a mother and grandmother, author, editor, promotions expert. I am a licensed insurance agent and am studying to be certified as a Life Coach. Those are the many hats I wear. On a more personal level I am a woman of God whose soul (and sole) purpose is to share my faith, knowledge and experience with others and in doing so, (hopefully) in some small way, soften hearts, open minds and touch lives.

Many writers were avid readers as children. Were you? If so, what did you read?

YES always! I’ve been an avid reader as far back as I remember and I read horse books (Black Stallion series, Misty of Chincoteague, etc.) voraciously. In fact, I still love horse s…
