It’s easy as a mom to spend all of your time leading up to Christmas morning checking off a giant to-do list and completely neglect to set aside any time to focus your heart on what the point of all this fuss is - JESUS’s arrival!

Today we are getting started in Luke 1 with the story of Zechariah and his wife, Elizabeth.
