Tuesday's Tip

As Christmas cards start to pour in, create a cute bowl or bucket to place them in as they arrive. My mother has a metal wreath that she fills with cards. Each night, choose a card (or let your child choose) and tell your family how you know this other family. Then, pray for your friends. It's a great way to quite literally bless others!

I always put mine in a big silver bowl. I love the idea of choosing one family to pray for each night. We will do that. Thanks for the idea!

What a wonderful idea! I love how it creates a history and compassion ~ you are a fabulous roll model to your children!

Super tip! I LOVE it and will start that tradition with my famuily. This is my first Christmas as a mom and I cannot wait to send out our card. I hope others will pray for us and I will be sure to pray for my family and friends.

Aww, I love your prayer idea! We stick all our cards in one of those photo stands with all the "arms" sticking out of it so we can look at them all season long!
