    The Holy Night

    The Holy Night, by Carl Heinrich Bloch

    “Be at Peace”: Elder Christofferson invites us to take time this Christmas season to sit quietly and think about baby Jesus. Consider reading the article together as a family and then inviting a spirit of reverence by reading scriptures, singing hymns, or watching Bible videos (available at about the Savior’s birth. Then allow time for each person to think about the Savior’s birth and what it means to them. You might consider having journals or paper available for those who wish to record their thoughts. Ask family members to share their thoughts if they so desire.

    Christmas video, Consider ways your family can use this year’s Christmas video to share the gospel with others. You might make Christmas treats to share with friends and deliver the treats with a card containing the web address to the video. You could also plan a family social media campaign and make goals for how many people you can share the video with. Another option would be to invite friends over to watch the video with you.
