This is exactly what my heart needed. Christmas was always my favorite time of year growing up but in recent years it's felt chaotic and stressful. From the presents to buy, to endless lists to check through, and the overall busyness of the season.. I stopped looking forward to Christmas. This book answered the ache in my heart. As a Christian I WANT Christmas to be about Jesus, not more stuff. Because of Advent Conspiracy, I have practical, life-changing ways to celebrate this year. Don't wait until next year to make a change. Do it this year and celebrate Christmas with a full heart.
