This Christmas I feel so very blessed for each one of you who have read my blog and traveled with me on this journey!

Over the next few weeks my blog will be going through a holiday renovation. No, we are not taking away the Super Sleuth Challenge, or writing tips, or other fun features. I’m just inviting some incredible author friends to join me.

Watch for the big event week to launch the new year here at with prizes, surprise unveiling of the newly extended blog family, and fun for all.

Until the first week of January, my blog’s elves will be working their magic…okay, maybe they don’t have pointy ears. I can’t wait to see you in the new year!

From Christmas Programs, to baking cookies, shopping, family gatherings, and the wonder of the season, I am running full tilt ahead. This holiday I’ve spent a bit less time online and more time with family.

Sometimes it is okay to take a deep breath and find joy in the simple things. I hope you are able to do that this season as well.

Settle back with a cup of hot chocolate and watch the tree lights chase one another, sprinkle reindeer food in your yard, bake goodies with your children, go sledding, and read an amazing book.

Embrace the joy of the Savior this season above all else. A tiny baby revolutionized the world, may He revolutionize your heart.

This year I’m excited to help direct the children’s Christmas musical at our church. I’m singing with my kids, sorting through costumes, practicing lines, and enjoying the fun they bring to the season.

We will be baking tons of gluten free, egg free, milk free goodies that taste amazing! A yummy and messy adventure.

But most of all, just being together as a family is the best thing about the season. Time to share hugs, adventures, and Jesus.

Until the new year, what are you planning to do to celebrate the season? Do you have a favorite snack, tradition, or event?

  1. Our church has a Christmas Eve candlelight service and for years I was unable to attend because I was in Chattanooga every Christmas. But for the past 3 years circumstances have allowed me to be there and it is a wonderful experience. I’ll get to go again this year!

    Reading your dietary restrictions made me sad. No Norwegian cookies for you! Lotsa cream, flour, butter, and of course, almond flavoring. Beka and I even visited a Nordic museum in a quest for some holiday heritage. Blessings to your family!
