He is the gift

Brandon designed the campaign for our Church. Its a Christmas message titled He is the gift. And it has been great for both of us to be able to think more about the Savior and to think about the first gift that was given on Christmas. So in efforts to spread goodness, we wanted to create a small video of a few our greatest joys; Our family, and our beliefs. Before our family went to Temple Square, I wanted each of my boys and me to think about the true meaning of Christmas. We read the scripture found in John 3:16

"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life."

We decided that we would each prayerfully think of something we could give to our Savior while we were walking around the Temple. We obviously had to help Daxton and Tayte, but it was sweet to hear what we each wanted to give, it created a beautiful memory. 

I hope that we can step back now and through out the whole year and think of the wonderful gift we have been given. If you want to watch the campaign about this message here is the link, or you can click on the widget on the side bar. 

Merry Christmas!
