It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…

We’re halfway through the month of December, and I can hardly believe it. My brothers come home from BYU this week for Winter break, and I am excited to see them.

Earlier this month I made wreaths with girls from my church congregation. A big shout out should go to Sarah Bennett and Stephanie Johnson for planning and coordinating such a great event. It was quite an undertaking, and I for one had a great time.

Last Saturday, my ward (church congregation) had our annual Christmas party. This was an ugly Christmas sweater party. I always enjoy the ward Christmas party.

Last night I finished wrapping the presents for my family and put them under the tree at my parents’ house. I always love the way my mom decorates the Christmas tree.

In all of the hoopla that surrounds the Christmas season, it’s easy to forget the true, joyous reason we celebrate Christmas – the birth of our Savior Jesus Christ. In the past few months, I’ve had a few experiences that have really reminded my heart that Jesus Christ truly overcame death, sin, and sorrow, something we would never ever be able to overcome on our own. I wrote a little bit about this on The Faith Friends last week. Below is a video I’ve seen floating around my Facebook newsfeed that also beautifully illustrates the true reason for the season.
