Friends! I hope your Christmas preparation is off to a fantastic start. (Are you shopping, wrapping, baking, or still making that never-ending list?) Can I share what has been going on in my world? First, it has been a meaningful Christmas season as I have had the opportunity to teach God's Word at churches across Arkansas. What a JOY to talk about Christmas peace and the beauty of the advent of Jesus . Here are a few pictures!
Then, on Saturday morning, I received a message from Facebook that my social media accounts had been suspended. I will be honest, I was shocked by the message, but I thought the situation could be easily resolved. (Blonde moment, for sure!) After hours of trying to resolve the situation, I decided to give it 24 hours, hoping things would resolve during that time. Well, that has not been the case. Jay and I have spent hours and hours trying to resolve the situation, and we would appreciate your prayers as we try and find the right avenue to get the case reviewed. Needless to say, this has really impacted ministry and communication, especially in the Girl on the Go Communicty!
Thank goodness for my blog and the ability to directly communicate with you. We are trusting God in all things! Remember--- trouble does not overwhelm, surprise, or negate God's plan. With that said, we are moving the Girl on the Go teaching over to the blog. I will keep you posted as we continue to try and resolve the social media situation!
We are continuing our study on Christmas Peace and Luke chapter 2. In the first Christmas Peace Video, we talked about the opportunity to make room for Christ at Christmas. In today's Christmas Peace Video, we will discover the beauty of unwrapping the first (and best) Christmas gift! Friends, Jesus is our Redeemer, Deliverer, and Soon-Coming King! Let's celebrate Him today. (He is our VICTORY!)

Oh, and here is the Ginger Streusel-Topped Cheesecake recipe I talk about in the video!
1 cup coarsely crushed gingersnaps
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 Tbsp. finely chopped crystallized ginger
1 (30oz.) frozen New York style cheesecake (I use Sara Lee)
Combine first five ingredients, mixing well with a spoon. Sprinkle streusel over top of frozen cheesecake. Bake at 425 for 16 to 19 minutes or until streusel is browned. Scoop warm cheesecake into serving bowls.
