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.

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.
