Advent

When my husband and I were first married we travelled to Hawaii for our honeymoon. As young explorers do, we set out to experience all Hawaii had to offer. While visiting Maui, we decided to wake up early one morning and go watch the sunrise on Haleakala. Arriving at the top of the massive volcano, […]

ASCENDING CALVARY Last fall we introduced a new study entitled He Is: Experiencing the Power of Jesus’ Name. This beautiful fictional narrative was written by Kara Holmes, Gretchen’s sister. It combined elements of a fictional story with truth from Scripture, and we spent the time leading up to Christmas digging into the names of God. […]

Prince of Peace | December 20: Wanting a deeper relationship with God must involve forgiveness on our part towards others. Is there someone in your life that God continually brings to your mind because you harbor unforgiveness towards them? They may be completely unaware that you feel this way. What instruction are we given in […]

Everlasting Father | December 14: Have you shared your story of Christ’s redemption in your life? As you invest time into the life of another person, sharing your story with them will be a natural overflow of that relationship. Your story is how Christ has saved you and given you new life. Has there been […]

Mighty God | December 8: Have you experienced a tragedy in your life that consumes you? If so, what was it? Because of Christ’s death on the cross, it is possibly to have peace even when suffering has been or is a part of your story. Read 1 Peter 5:9-11. What is the promised end […]

December 1 It’s December 1, the beginning of a month that can bring about mixed emotions. For some, it’s the start of the Christmas season and nothing but joy fills your heart and home. But for others, it’s the start of a holiday that brings sadness because of lost loved ones, tense family dynamics, financial […]

Thanksgiving is TOMORROW, and then comes the official start of the Christmas season! The time has come to pull out all the Christmas decorations, pick out a tree, and start thinking about how you’ll spend the next few weeks as a family. We want this season of Advent, anticipating the coming of Christ, to be […]

Earlier this year we planned on releasing an Advent resource to encourage you to treasure Christ the days leading up to Christmas. As I was writing and praying through Advent, I knew the Lord wasn’t calling me to finish it this year and instead wait until next year. Little did I know, at the same […]

For the woman who tends toward being an overachiever (like myself), Pinterest and Instagram can be our worst enemy in this season! There are countless ways we can celebrate Christmas and participate it in Advent activities and readings, but it is impossible to do everything. I know my own heart tends towards the “doer” mentality in my Christian walk, but over and over in Scripture I am reminded that it’s not about what I do that brings me satisfaction, it’s about what Christ has done. My actions should flow the directly from the cross. When I put my hope in a “perfect” Advent and Christmas, I am let down. When I place my hope in my perfect Savior, I am set free.

Make room for the gift of Jesus Christ the King, and accept the greatest gift you will ever be given, the life of Christ in you.
