7 Days Christmas Challenge

This challenge is a simple and easy way to remember the purpose of Christmas and spread love and joy among ourselves and around the world.
Every day for the 7 days before Christmas there are:

  • Meditation on one of Jesus’ deeds on earth
  • Reading a passage from the Bible
  • Gift giving
  • A challenge

Gifts can be from the suggestions we have made or anything that goes with the theme.
Do what you feel will bring you and your family closer to the Savior.
At the bottom of the page, there is a card that you can print out and attach to the gift
Share with us every day of the challenge via #ta7adiChristmas
