The Joy of Christmas 2012

Courtesy of
The First Presidency of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints released its 2012 Christmas message a few weeks ago. It's fitting that we revisit it as the holidays approach, with all their hustle, bustle, toys and stresses.
Remember the Reason for the Season, even Jesus Christ, who came into the world to save all mankind from our sin.
At this time, let us also remember the greatest gift we can give is ourselves:
"Each act of kindness to anyone becomes a kindness to the Savior because He loves all of Heavenly Father's children. And because that brings joy to Him, it also brings joy to His Father, to whom we owe thanks beyond measure." (First Presidency Christmas Message)
The Church is commemorating the birth of Christ with a Christmas campaign in New York City and across the Internet. If you see this campaign, take a minute to stop and reflect on the power of Christ's atonement in your life.
"With the birth of the babe in Bethlehem, there emerged a great endowment—a power stronger than weapons, a wealth more lasting than the coins of Caesar. This child was to become the King of kings and Lord of lords, the promised Messiah—Jesus Christ, the Son of God." (Pres. Thomas S. Monson)
Merry Christmas, everyone.
