Saint Johns, FL:
Three years ago my wife purchased the book, Christmas Jars and we read it as a family. Of course, it touched our hearts so profoundly that we immediately began our own family Christmas Jar project! The first year we gave away $120, followed by $160 the second year and this year we have collected $200! In each occasion, we have looked for someone or family in need and have secretly delivered our money. I can't begin to tell you what a blessing it has been to our family as our children get excited to deliver it on Christmas Eve!
We have shared our love of the Christmas Jar with our families and encouraged them to do the same! It is truly more blessed to give than to receive and each year the Lord teaches us the value of giving!
