From home to home and heart to heart, from one place to another, the warmth and joy of Christmas brings us closer to each other. (Emily Matthews, poet and writer)

Many families celebrate the holiday on Christmas Eve. While there may be a confusion of gifts being opened, wrapping papers covering the floor, new toys being tested—yet there’s a calming warmth because joy surrounds the loving family. Take a bit of time, during those moments to recognize the reason for the real, lasting joy that Christmas offers.

I bring you good news that will bring great joy to all people. The Savior—yes, the Messiah, the Lord—has been born today in Bethlehem, the city of David! (Luke 2:10-11)
