Give This Christmas Away

101 Simple & Thoughtful Ways to Give This Christmas Away by Matthew West is a delightful little book full of ideas to make this Christmas different from any you've had before. Some simple (hold a door open for someone), some a little more intense (forgive....), and some downright fun (give yourself a silent night). Okay, I've shared three of them with you but I didn't share the explanations that go along with them, and there are still another 98 for you to discover on your own. This is a great little book that I recommend for anyone who is looking for something different this year, for something more.

About the book:
“What if December looked different this year?” Featured on the new Veggie Tales Christmas DVD (Saint Nicholas: A Story of Joyful Giving), the forthcoming single “Give This Christmas Away” is a duet between Matthew West and Amy Grant destined to become a holiday classic. Now, in this tie-in book, Matthew West shares 101 inspiring ways for you, your family, and your church to give this Christmas away. Mirroring Jesus’ message of love for the unloveable and compassion for the broken, this book will share practical ideas and inspiring stories of giving that will help you give the message of the ultimate Christmas gift this year—Jesus. Includes 101 Scriptures from the New Living Translation.

What a great idea for a book. Some of us need a little help not being total Scrooges during the holidays. : ) (I'm not one of them. Just some people. People I know. . .Nope. Not me...)
