Today, in the spirit of the true meaning of Christmas, I wanted to announce one last ‘bonus’ giveaway. This past year I have become familiar with a music composer by the name of Rob Gardner. He is truly a genius and has created some of the most beautiful, touching music I have ever heard. A couple weeks ago a friend gave our family a CD tilted The Lamb of God (composed by Rob Gardner). We have listened to this CD for several days and it touches my heart and soul in ways that no other music has. It is truly breathtaking! The Lamb of God CD is a musical depiction of the life of Jesus Christ–all put to music. It is unlike anything you’ve probably ever heard. If you love the New Testament and want to strengthen your knowledge and testimony of Jesus Christ, this CD is a sacred and special musical performance that will touch your heart. Here are a few examples of the music on this CD and/or Rob Gardner’s work.

Hosanna from Lamb of God on Youtube

My Kindness Shall Not Depart from Thee 

Savior, Redeemer of My Soul

Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing

After I listened to this CD I knew I wanted to end our 12 Days of Giveaways in a way that would bring us back to the true meaning of Christmas. I contacted Rob Gardner and he was so sweet and sent us the LAST two CD’s of The Lamb of God they had  (CD’s are currently on back order). He was so kind and shipped them to me and I am super excited to share these CD’s with two of you.

We also have a copy of the LDS Church’s Bible Video DVD Compilation. This DVD has 50 video presentations of Christ’s life. They are each done so well and are completely non-denominational so all Christians can enjoy them and share them with your family. My family loves watching these videos every morning before school after we read the scriptures. It’s a great way for the scriptures to come to life for my kids (and me!). ALL of these videos are available FREE for all of you! Or, you can buy this DVD for only $5.00 here.

We hope this combination will be a special treasure your family will enjoy for years to come! Before Christmas comes and goes, I wanted to share my testimony, gratitude and love I have for my Savior, Jesus Christ. I know He was born to this earth to save us from our sins, to succor us from our pains, our disappointments, our heartaches,  and has made it so we can live again after we die–and find peace and happiness through the process. His life brings light and hope to my soul. He is what keeps me going through the hard times and helps me feel like I can conquer each and every day–despite the hard things that come our way.  I couldn’t believe in Him more if I saw Him with my own eyes. I have felt his love in my life more times than I can count, and I have seen his healing hand and miracles in my life, as well as in the life of my family. I know He lives. I know He loves me. I know He loves you. I love the second verse of Away in a Manger when it says:

Be near me, Lord Jesus; I ask thee to stay
Close by me forever, and love me, I pray, 
Bless all the dear children in thy tender care, 
And fit us for heaven to live with thee there. 

That is my hope and prayer for each of us. That we will take the time to get to know our Savior. That we will keep Him near us ,and carry the joy we feel at Christmas time, throughout the year to come. May God bless you and your families and may Christ’s spirit be in your homes this special season.
