Sparkly lights, Hallmark movies, heartfelt gifts, and too many cookies. ‘Tis the season for all these things.

Unfortunately, ’tis also the season of chaos that can make it all too easy to lose sight of what Christmas is really about. So, in the spirit of keeping “the reason for the season” at the forefront of our hearts and minds this year, we’ve put together a list of the 14 best faith-based gifts to keep your focus on the true blessing of the season.

1. She Reads Truth Bible  This Bible is as gorgeous inside as it is out. It’s perfect for those precious quiet moments spent recharging in God’s truth. Added bonus? Mini-devotionals are built in throughout to help the reader make real-life connections to the word.

 

2. Bible Study Kit  We love, love these Bible study kits! The pens are designed specifically for writing in your Bible and won’t bleed through the thin pages as you take notes and reflect on scripture.

3. Beginner’s Bible: Timeless Children’s Stories   While you’re enjoying your own Bible study, you can encourage your little ones to develop their own love for God’s word. We have this Bible at home, and our 3-year-old refuses to go to bed at night without reading at least one of the colorfully illustrated “stowys” inside.

4. Lauren Daigle CD  If you haven’t heard Lauren Daigle’s hauntingly beautiful voice, you’re missing out—seriously, the girl can sing! This praise CD is perfect background music during a bible study or just as worthy of being blasted in the car or during a house-cleaning sesh.

5. Thankful, Grateful, Blessed Scripture Cards

These short and sweet scripture cards can be left anywhere as reminders of God’s truth all day long. The set comes in a series of three themes: Thankful, Grateful, and Blessed, and each one is about the size of a deck of playing cards. Can you say stocking stuffers?!

6. Faith Blanket We’re just going to leave this right here, because who doesn’t love to cozy up under a soft blanket—especially one covered with inspiring faith-filled affirmations?

God Has You

In: Faith, Motherhood
Woman hugging herself while looking to the side

Holding tight to the cold, sterile rail of the narrow, rollaway ER bed, I hovered helplessly over my oldest daughter. My anxious eyes bounced from her now steadying breaths to the varying lines and tones of the monitor overhead. Audible reminders of her life that may have just been spared. For 14 years, we’d been told anaphylaxis was possible if she ingested peanuts. But it wasn’t until this recent late autumn evening we would experience the fear and frenzy of our apparent new reality. My frantic heart hadn’t stopped racing from the very moment she struggled to catch a breath....

My Husband Having a Stroke at 30 Wasn’t in Our Plans

In: Faith, Living

“‘For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.’” (Jeremiah 29:11, NIV) This verse in the book of Jeremiah has long been a favorite of mine. In fact, it’s felt relevant across many life events. Its simple, yet powerful reminder has been a place of solace, perhaps even a way to maintain equilibrium when I’ve felt my world spinning a bit out of control. In this season of starting fresh and new year intentions, I find great comfort in knowing...

She Left Him on Valentine’s Day

In: Faith, Marriage

“Can you believe that?” Those were the dreaded knife-cutting whispers I heard from across the table. I sunk deeper into my chair. My hopes fell as everyone would forever remember that I had left my fiancée on Valentine’s Day. Maybe one day it would just dissipate like the dream wedding I had planned or the canceled plane tickets for the Hawaiian honeymoon. Some bridesmaids and guests had already booked plane tickets. It was my own nightmare that kept replaying in my head over and over again. I had messed up. Big time. To be honest, if it made any difference,...

God was In the Room for Our Daughter’s Open Heart Surgery

Child's hand with IV

I’ve had a strong faith for as long as I can remember, but I always felt bad that I never had a “testimony.” I had never gone through something that made me sit back and say, “Wow, God is real, He is here.” I have always felt it to my core, but no moment had ever stopped me dead in my tracks to where there was no denying that it was God. And then, that moment happened to me on December 5. After five months of fervently praying for a miracle for our daughter, the day came for her heart...

A Benediction for the Worn Out Mother

In: Faith, Motherhood

Blessed are you, Father, for bestowing upon me the honor of motherhood. For allowing me to experience the deep joy of bringing forth life—a joy I often take for granted and instead choose to begrudge. My children’s cries and demands have worn me down. I do not recognize myself. I selfishly long for the old me. My thoughts are an intangible mess of never-ending tasks, self-criticism, and comparison to those around me. RELATED: God Sees You, Weary Mama But Your word says you are near to the broken-hearted and downtrodden. You do not forget the cause of the tired and the...

God Doesn’t Forget You When You’re Lost and Unsure

In: Faith, Living

I’ve been wandering around feeling lost for over a year. Wondering where I’m going, what I’m supposed to be doing. Nothing seems to make sense. I felt purposeless. I felt stuck. I questioned everything: my faith, my marriage, my career—if it could be questioned, I doubted it. And I was completely clueless how to fix the funk. For over a year, I’ve been in the wilderness. I’ve wanted to find my way, but every path seemed like another dead end. The wilderness. I’ve been residing there. Not feeling fed. Not feeling heard. Not feeling seen. Struggling to find a purpose....

And Then, the Darkness Lifts

Today when I woke, it had lifted, like sunshine peeking after rain. And as my toddler clicked on the lamp beside my bed to see her mama, I saw me too. I got out of bed and I walked down the hall. And the coffee pot sat there waiting for me, as always, like my husband at the kitchen table with his books. He smiled at me, and I think he could tell as I took my medicine, took down a mug, and poured my coffee. I opened the secretary desk and pulled out the chair and my Bible, like...

Joy in This Stillness

In: Faith, Motherhood

I woke up suddenly in a sweat while it was still dark. Except for the humming of the oxygen machine, the house was silent. For a moment, I thought I might have time to enjoy a cup of coffee before my son woke up. However, a glance at my daughter’s crib told me that feeding my caffeine addiction would have to wait. My daughter has a terminal brain disorder called Lissencephaly, a side effect of which is uncontrolled epilepsy. Many mornings, a subconscious recognition that she is having episodes of repeated seizures rouses me from my sleep. Throwing on a...

Sometimes All We Can Do Is Say How Hard Motherhood Is

In: Faith, Motherhood

I have been sitting in the peace and quiet of the office to do some long overdue Bible study for all of five minutes when the baby wakes up. With a heavy sigh that is becoming all too common, I go to the bedroom to pick up my fussy, probably getting sick, 8-month-old daughter who has been asleep for approximately 15 minutes. I bring her to the office and put her on the floor with some new books and toys. Sitting back down in front of my own new book of Bible maps and charts, I begin reading once again....

Sometimes I Want to Skip This Part

In: Faith, Living

Kelly Clarkson’s new album Chemistry is about the arch of her relationship with her husband and their divorce. The first song on the album is called “skip this part.” It begins with her asking if she can skip the heartbreak. She begs to jump over the deep pain that came with her divorce. The song is haunting and beautiful and says things like, “my heart can’t forget the ache before the mend.” She is honest and vulnerable, admitting she is not sure if she has the strength to get through the pain. She just wants it all to be over, for...
