I write about what you---
women, wives and moms---
about your family, faith and future.
I write about what's hard, what helps and what heals.
I show you how it's done. And not done.
I hold your hand as you find what matters to the Savior.
And let go of those things that mattered to you, but not to Him.
I write about what Him.

Story Behind the Songs
Christmas carols of the past told the story of Christ coming to bring hope, courage and salvation.

These stories tell the story behind the song: how these great songs came to be.

In some, like O Holy Night, the power of the salvation’s message is told even by an unsaved world.

The message of the season is not some story delegated to the back corners of a grandmother’s attic. It’s a story that gives hope for those burdened today. Read the story behind the song and bring those songs back to Christmas season.
