Here’s What’s Inspiring Me…
Inspire Me Monday Turns 100
Happy Inspire Me Monday, dear friends!
Can you believe that this week, we are celebrating
100 weeks of creativity and inspiration?
Thanks to all of you who contribute to our community and
Make Inspire Me Monday a success!
This year, December 1 marks the beginning of Advent –
A season where we are invited to remember the first coming of
Jesus Christ, which we celebrate on Christmas Day, and to
Look forward to His second coming in the future.
Song Of The Week – O Come O Come Emmanuel by Selah
Today’s hymn – O Come O Come Emmanuel – is a
Haunting and majestic hymn that draws forth the
Ancient biblical prophecies and captures the longing
Of a people in need of a Savior.
The War On Christmas Book Tour
The War On Christmas
Last month, I received an invitation to participate in an amazing book tour.
The War On Christmas could totally change your perspective on this holiday!
Take a moment to watch this fascinating video and answer the questions.
Did you get all of the answers right?
I did not!
On this book tour, 20 bloggers –
Including myself and a few Inspire Me Monday contributors –
Will be sharing what we learned from specific sections of the book
On our designated tour days!
Please join me on Saturday, December 7 as I write about
Misconceptions Surrounding Christmas and The X Stands for Christ
And support the other members on this very important book tour!
(P.S. There will be an Exciting Giveaway on my tour stop!)
