HOW PINTEREST STOLE CHRISTMAS

Now THAT'S a title that makes you stop and think. As we head quickly toward Christmas, are all the wonderful decorating, baking and gift-giving ideas that abound out there distracting you (and as a result, your family) from the true reason of the season? Take a few moments to listen to this two-part audio series on how to truly keep the CHRIST in Christmas. You will be glad you did!
