Pre-Holiday Links and Resources -Advent 2018 and Christmas

With Thanksgiving this week, Advent is following quickly behind it!

But besides the busy preparation for Christmas, there are a lot of things we can do to really observe the season of Advent! Over the years I have collected links and resources for the holidays that I thought would help me and my family prepare our hearts and spirits to celebrate the birth of Baby Jesus.  I haven't done everything on this list.  Some of it is a wish list, but there was something in every link that I thought was worthwhile.

      If the GOP is able to contain and cooperate with the tea party, and recharge
      its evangelical wing with Beck-style talk of faith, it spells the kind of change
      Ratliff and others like him are searching for.

      The promise of change helped President Barack Obama win the White House in
      2008, but could turn against his fellow Democrats this year. Americans’ dim view
      of the economy has grown even more pessimistic this summer as the nation’s
      unemployment rate stubbornly hovered near 10 percent and other troubling
