2023 Holiday Gift Guide:
Gifts to help you bless others, be healthy and connect with God

gift guide

As believers, we know the true meaning of Christmas isn't in the giving or receiving of gifts, because we have already been given the greatest gift of all, Jesus, our Immanuel. But, many of us still partake in the exchange of gifts as a way to show generosity and to bless our loved ones.

This year, I want to challenge you to be a more conscious consumer as a follower of Christ. The truth is that we've been given this earth to steward, and I don't know about you, but I want to steward it well!

There are SO many great swaps you can make at Christmas to buy ethical, eco-friendly and just buying things that promote whole-self health for those you love!

Let's jump in and make this our most mindful Christmas yet! 🎄

Ultimately, our money, our time, our energy is all a gift from God, so let's commit together this season to making conscious choices with those resources and glorifying God in all we do.

Seasons blessings, friend!
