How do you honor Jesus' birth amidst the blitz of the holiday rush? Pastor Osteen shows you! Sharing personal stories of celebration, gift giving, and acts of charity, he offers an intimate portrait of how he and his family keep "Christ" in Christmas through worshiping God, serving the needy, choosing meaningful presents, and more. Jacketed hardcover.
For many, the Christmas season can be filled with distractions and anxiety rather than the joy and peace it is supposed to bring. In The Christmas Spirit, his first holiday book, Joel Osteen offers uplifting and inspiring stories of family and friends celebrating Christmas traditions that will help readers return to the essence of the holiday by practicing the principles taught by our Savior, Jesus Christ, whose birth we celebrate that day. With these stories, Joel reminds us all of what is truly important in life. Filled with humorous and compelling holiday memories from Joels family and friends, this heartwarming collection will inspire and amuse readers while enhancing their faith in Gods goodness and eternal wisdom.
The stories in The Christmas Spirit reflect that this Christian holiday is a celebration of family: Gods family, our own, and the diverse global family. Friends and families from near and far share faith and Christmas traditions: They laugh together. They grieve together. They support each other. They offer proof that the best way to overcome hurt and loneliness is to reach out to others who may be hurting and lonely, too.
Joels unique stories and memories will encourage readers to savor their own Christmas memories, to share them with loved ones, and to create new memories and traditions that will be passed down for generations to come. For those feeling stressed, hurt, or lacking direction this holiday season, these heartwarming stories will serve as a healing balm and a guiding light to a more hopeful and peaceful holiday.
