SHOP WITH PURPOSE
Several years ago, the Christmas season had begun to lose its luster. As my relationship with God grew, I realized more and more that Christmas was losing its true meaning. Out of necessity, I was just buying things for my loved ones, sometimes things they hadn’t even stated they needed or wanted.
I was simply buying to buy. And unknowingly feeding a machine that was hurting people instead of helping.
So, I began searching for more meaningful gifts and discovered that many different nonprofits and ministries sold handmade items that helped others in need. So, when I purchase a gift for my loved ones, that gift would tell a story to the one who received it. The gift they held in their hands on Christmas morning was the hands and feet of Jesus in motion.
