Christmas Newsletter 2021 Joe McDonald Ministry

Christmas Newsletter 2021

Dear Readers and Friends of the McDonald Family:

Our Ministry January Newsletter will be out soon and many news items about Christmas 2021 will be featured there, with pictures, of course, however, I wanted to post our December Newsletter ICYMI!

As “Professional Mom,” preparing for Christmas was a true joy this year. In addition to having several children and grands nearby to “help” with decorating and enjoy the food and goodies, we had a fun Christmas holiday, with the usual caroling/hayride and multiple combined breakfast and dinner opportunities.

During December we had the blessing of being in three local parades (as mentioned in the letter) and attended Christmas Eve service as a family at Cottage Hill Baptist Church. Our tradition of Christmas Eve at Nanny’s was moved to Christmas Evening to accommodate our out-of-towners, and I think it will stick as our party time from now on.

Enjoy our newsletter and Family News (page 2) and share some of your Christmas traditions in the comments!

Blessings for an awesome 2022!

January gives us a moment to pause and recommit to what’s truly important in our lives- our goals, our faith, our family, our friends.

 

This turn-key lesson kit will take just 60 minutes to teach, but it will jumpstart a child’s mindset as they look forward on the next 365 days.

 

Happy New Year!
