What's Peace On Earth? Jim Garlow Explains!

Jim GarlowI know the holidays have really begun when Christmas Carols become a regular part of my life (I don't count any that I hear before Thanksgiving though). Not a year goes by that I don't end up singing "Peace on Earth and Mercy Mild...God and sinners reconciled." While culture usually drops the latter part of that phrase, Peace on Earth seems to have become a mantra during the holidays. Believers and unbelievers alike regale the season with this slogan, but what is peace? Is it no violence...or total agreement? What about just letting everyone do their ...

RESOLVE--in the world . . . not of it!

How can Christian students live in this broken-down world, filled with sin and distractions at every turn, and not compromise?  Is it even possible?

This is the question posed to students aged 12-18 during a weekend conference presented by Transform Student Ministries, the generational equipping of Precept Ministries International®. 

This conference will be held December 4-6 at the ministry's headquarters in Chattanooga.  It's an opportunity for students to learn Precept's Inductive Bible Study Method, bringing them into a direct engagement with Scripture.

Transform Student Ministries' conference is the only one that puts middle and high school students ...

What's Your Favorite Christmas Memory?

I have many, but I'll always remember Christmas morning when, after sharing gifts, my Dad would read aloud the Christmas story from Luke.  It's a tradition that we now practice in my own family.

As a child, I didn't realize the impact of that special time together as much as I do now, being a mom of two young children.  Recognizing how important it is to reflect on God's gift to us and that Christmas means so much more than if we got exactly what we'd wished for that year.

Well, Elizabeth George beat my ...

A Perfect Christmas

If you're planning the "perfect" Christmas celebration, forget it!  There is no such thing, and you'll just end up exhausted and frustrated when it doesn't happen. Emilie and Bob Barnes and Sheri Cooper

Instead, Emilie Barnes, says just "Keep It Simple!"  If you simplify your holiday plans, you will enjoy them more.  But, with all the things most of us want to do this probably doesn't sound possible.  It is - really!

As you make your plans just keep saying to yourself - keep it simple.  Take out a monthly calendar and schedule the things you really want to do - forget the rest!

Here are ...

What Are Your Christmas Traditions?

This weekend I started to think about some of the Christmas traditions my family shares:

  • Christmas Cards
  • Nativity Display
  • Caroling
  • Reading Luke 2
  • Decorating the Christmas tree
  • Shopping
  • Christmas movies
  • Cookies and hot chocolate 

Speaking of traditions, the "Hour of Decision®" programming for December includes wonderful Christmas messages from Billy and Franklin Graham along with traditional Christmas songs-all focusing on the true meaning of Christmas.

And, you'll also want to be sure you journey through "Christmas Past" with the Graham family in the classic television specials available on the ministry web site. Heartwarming stories, beloved guests and stirring seasonal ...
