Your Guide to Shop Small This Christmas

We’ve all seen and heard about what a hit small businesses took this year with the shut downs, mandates, and restrictions. What better time to help support local businesses, families working from home, and people’s dreams than at Christmas time.

The internet is a wonderful place for shopping, but with major retailers advertising and hours upon hours upon hours of scrolling available for shopping, it can be so overwhelming. To give a hand, I wanted to share some resources that are perfect for the young or mature woman wanting to grow deeper in her relationship with Christ.

These resources are all created by women with a deep passion to serve their Lord Jesus, their families, and the women that they cross paths with. By purchasing from these shops you are not only helping each woman’s business succeed, you are furthering the cause of Christ.

Can Christmas get any more meaningful than that? You will also find several links for blog posts by other women that might help you shop, or find more meaning for your Christmas season…

    Need a little more inspiriation for your Christmas season?

    Although this guide is about purchasing Christmas presents, or other things to celebrate, Christmas doesn’t have to be just about purchases. In fact, it shouldn’t be. We MUST first remember that this is a season about GIVING.

    “Here is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance: Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners—of whom I am the worst. But for that very reason I was shown mercy so that in me, the worst of sinners, Christ Jesus might display his immense patience as an example for those who would believe in him and receive eternal life. Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honor and glory forever and ever.” – 1 Timothy 1:15-17

    Christmas is a time to reflect on the goodness of Christ and the Father and to share that with the people that we love, and especially with people that are outside of our regular sphere of influence.

    Establishing His Name

    Hi, my name is Rebecca Cruz and I am the founder of Audience of One Creations (AOOC).  AOOC’s mission is to create products that provide opportunities to connect with God on a deeper level.  My newest project is a 4-book series of devotionals titled, Establishing His Name: Exploring the Width and Depth of God’s Character.  The first of the 4-book series will be releasing on December 1st and I am so excited!  Each chapter of the devotional focuses on an attribute of God’s character.  These attributes of God are found in the Hebrew language of the Scriptures.  The devotional challenges you to identify how God has manifested these attributes in your life.  Each chapter also provides ample space for you to meditate on the Word, as well as to journal about your experience and discoveries.  Establishing His Name is meant to provoke you to dig deeper as you build an intimate and thriving relationship with God.  This devotional series has been written in both English and Spanish and will be available in both print and digital copy. Along with the devotional, there are other products such as personalized pregnancy journals, tote bags, t-shirts, stickers, bookmarks, etc that would make great gifts for this holiday season.  The revamped digital store will be going live on December 1st!  So make sure to visit Audience of One Creations at and join the mailing list so you are notified of new product launches!
