FAMILY FAITH CONVERSATION: On January 7, you will hear the story of the Wise Men who brought Jesus gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh. If you were going to give a gift to Jesus, what would you give? What do you think Jesus wants more than anything else in the world?

Christmas vacation is a great time to clear out closets, toy bins and basements to see what gently-used items could be better enjoyed by a new recipient. Involve the whole family in decluttering your home and share your abundance with others by donating to local organizations that pass along pre-enjoyed donations.
