Celebrate Christmas WITH Jesus

Mamas,
 
Christmas is just around the corner! There are meals to be made, gifts to be wrapped, cookies to be baked, decorations to be strung about, and no shortage of gatherings to attend this Christmas.
 
But if you only do one thing this Christmas, make it this—don’t lose sight of Jesus in the frenzy.
 
I know it sounds cliche. After all, Jesus is the reason for the season! But cliches aside, taking this to heart and living it out has the power to transform the way you do the holidays.
 
Don’t just celebrate Jesus from afar this Christmas—do it WITH Him! I can assure you, He wants to be an intimate part of it all!
 
Before the holidays begin, pray this short prayer out loud and set your priorities right:
 
“Jesus, thank You for loving us so much that You entered into our mess to rescue us. I ask that in the midst of the busyness, You remain the focus of my heart this season. Help me to pause and look at You, and as I do, reveal Your love in new and profound ways. By Your grace, may I still my anxious heart and walk in the peace and purpose that You came to bring, helping those around me to see You more clearly in the process. In Your Name, we pray. Amen.”
 
Dear one, that’s what this season is really all about, so don’t miss the forest for the trees!
 
It is not too late to join our Holidays with the Help Club Bible study! We at Help Club for Moms are committed to helping you walk through this busy season well as we walk through this beautiful study together.
 
If you haven’t yet, order your book HERE on Amazon and together, let’s make this holiday season the most meaningful yet!

Co-founder at Help Club for Moms
My name is Deb Weakly and I helped create the Help Club for Moms with one goal in mind: to create a community in which moms help moms to know the love of Christ. My own childhood was difficult and filled with sadness. I didn’t grow up in a Christian home, so when I became a Christian (and soon after, a mom), I had no idea what I was doing; I didn’t know what it meant to raise Christ-centered kids, but I so desperately wanted to learn.

I remember going into my daughter's room night after night and kneeling beside her bed and crying my heart out to God because I didn’t know how to be a Christian mom; I felt like I had no idea what I was doing. You know what? God is so faithful! He answered me and simply said, “Spend time with me, Deb.” And so I did. I began arising 15-30 minutes earlier each day so I could read my Bible and pray, and plan out my day with my family.

If there was one thing I would love to share with you is that God is personal and loves you as you are. You don’t have to be perfect to be loved by our amazing God! Come as you are! His loving presence can be practically known and experienced. He is not a God who is far away, He is near and easily found. He longs for you to come to Him!

Randy and I have been married for 28 years and we have two grown children, Christie, and Jack, and one answer to prayer son-in-law named Alex. And now I get to be a Gigi to my sweet little grandbaby, Aspen! Yay!
