Single Moms at Christmas Time

Single Moms, single Dads, orphans... We often think of them at Christmas time. Many people reach out to them to make thier holiday special.

There's another unwed Mom we should remember this time of year: Mary. She may have been single, but she had Joseph.

Here's more for those in an unplanned pregnancy:

Finding God in an Unplanned Pregnancy

You may be single, but you're never alone.

"The angel said to them, 'Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord. This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger'" (Luke 2:10-12, NIV).

Getting through Christmas in Tough Times

When we're experiences tough times, the expectations of Christmas seem to make them feel all the tougher.

I remember that feeling, and the feeling of loss, after my brother was killed when he was 22. I was 18. If you're feeling loss this holiday season, I have a little blog coming on December 22 just for you.

Today, I'm hoping this will help: Recently, I was honored to be part of a new book:

Chicken Soup for the Soul: Devotional Stories for Tough Times: 101 Daily Devotions to Inspire and Support You in Times of Need

The book released just this past October, and it's available both as a print book and for immediate download on Kindle. 

My story is about how the death of my brother, Fred, affected me.

I always think of him around Christmas because his birthday was December 14th. Who are you missing this Christmas? Will you let Christ and forgiveness fill that hole in your heart? Hang on. He loves you.
