  • Thinking about the holidays and how excited we are as parents and grandparents, yet at the same time trying to determine how much we need to budget can be stressful.

  • Speaking from experience over this past weekend, this topic hit home for me. As fast as I was wrapping presents and putting them under the tree, my 4 year old granddaughter was sneaking them off and unwrapping them.

         Christmas is almost upon us, and we will be celebrating the birth of the Christ, but the miracle was not the actual birth of Jesus, the miracle was the conception. That a human body could be conceived within a mother’s womb, without an earthly father and without sin. We celebrate Christmas because of how the Christ came.
