What better way to follow Christ, than to try to become more like him!
This year is wrapping up and we all tend to evaluate our year. What did we do as a family? What did we accomplish? What did you learn? And what are the goals you are going to set for next year? Make this year’s resolutions more meaningful. Dig down deep and think of what type of person you want to be. Then come up with a list of what you will do to become that person. If you want to strengthen your marriage you might make a goal to date, flirt, and serve your husband more. If you want to be a more patient mother you might set a goal to enjoy the journey and go with the flow more, learn to smile and laugh during the day, even when it’s hard, and enjoy the kids while they are little. So think to yourself what do you want to be. Developing any good, righteous goal will bring you closer to Christ. He wants us to be happy and cares about each of us personally. Setting a goal to become a better person and finding ways to serve His children is giving back to Him. So, what is YOUR Gift to Jesus Christ this year?
We like to write letters on Christmas Eve stating what we are going to give Christ throughout the next year. One fun way to do this, is with a special WHITE STOCKING that is just for Christ. Everyone puts their letters in the stocking and they can be reflected on, the following year. You don’t have to use a white stocking though, you can also just put them in an envelope on the tree, or in an ornament, or in a gift box.
We hope you will use our cute printables and give a gift to Christ this year!
Once you have set your goal ALWAYS display it somewhere that you will see it. A daily reminder of the person you want to become and the things you are going to do, to get you there.
