"We light a new candle and read a Bible story every Sunday leading up to Christmas."
As we seek to fix our eyes on Christ in a culture driven by materialism, Leading The Way friends and partners share the creative ways they celebrate the glory of Christ's arrival—keeping Christ at the center of their traditions.
THE KHOUZAM FAMILY
"When we lived in Syria, we would go to a poor neighborhood or a Muslim neighborhood and knock on the doors to sing a Christmas song to the kids and give them a small gift and a Bible."
THE KLAYMAN FAMILY
THE KIGER FAMILY
"For 41 years, my husband and I read passages from Scripture about the birth of Jesus. Once our children were old enough, they read them, and now our oldest grandchild reads them! I also make a birthday cake for Jesus to help the little ones understand who the celebration is about."
THE KING FAMILY
"Our family used to volunteer to be a part of a live nativity. This was especially cool when the kids were old enough to participate."
THE SELF FAMILY
"We do a lot of Christ-centered charity work—making gift bags for families, delivering it to them, and telling them about Jesus."
