christmas cookie exchange

Warning: If you have a raging sweet tooth, are trying to exercise some sort of self control this time of year…or are just generally hungry, you may want to divert your eyes.

Otherwise, enjoy!

As you can see, there was no shortage of cookies up in here! We also got to love on sweet Halle with Kim as our host! To end the night, we shared all that God has been teaching us and working on us during our study of the book, “Lies Women Believe: And the Truth that Sets them Free” by Nancy Leigh DeMoss. God has been teaching me so much and working on my heart and mind during the past few months of studying His Word through this book, and I can tell you that we highly recommend it!

Thank you to Katie C. for the above picture!

“God wants us to grow up, to know the whole truth and tell it in love—like Christ in everything. We take our lead from Christ, who is the source of everything we do. He keeps us in step with each other. His very breath and blood flow through us, nourishing us so that we will grow up healthy in God, robust in love.” Ephesians 4:15
