14: Does God Still Give Good Gifts at Christmastime?
This is the story of a Christmas baby.
This season is all about gifts. We give gifts to one another, and we remember the very good gift of God's son, given to a weary world on the first Christmas Day.
But is God still in the business of giving good gifts?
Lisa-Jo tells the story of her own Christmas baby. It's a story of how shame and sorrow gave way to peace and joy. It's a story of good gifts freely given, no strings attached.
If you feel discouraged, if God's goodness feels a little hard to grasp, we hope you'll listen and be reminded that something as small and ordinary as a baby can change everything.

Special Free Gift for You: Thanksgiving through Christmas only
An Illustrated Guide to the Four Seasons at Maplehurst.
Like Book Pages Pulled from a Vintage Treasure.
Printed in full color on quality paper, these prints are like illustrations pulled from an old almanac or diary. The separate black and white prints are ideal for adding your own artistic touch in watercolor or pencil.
This illustrated guide, with inspiration for the kitchen, the garden, and the bookshelf, would make a meaningful gift, perhaps with a clipboard for display, bundled with art supplies, or included in a notebook of seasonal inspiration. If you package or display these creatively, I would love to see! Use the hashtag #weareplacemakers and tag me @christiepurifoy on Instagram.
This is a special gift celebrating the upcoming release of Christie's new book: Placemaker. Only available during this gift-giving season. Pre-order your book before December 25 and we'll pop these lovely prints into your email inbox right away!
