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.
