Helpful Hints Thursday: Giving

I don’t know what your Christmas giving looks like, but in our family we have frequently enjoyed finding at least some way to give to a missions organization at Christmas. We try to be creative in how we plan and do it, but it’s a lot of fun no matter how it happens.

One thing that can be difficult, though, is sorting out which organizations are legitimate and which ones actually end up passing the donated money on to the causes they claim to support. My goal for this post was to make a list of some of the organizations we have given to over the years, but my wonderful husband beat me to it! So, I’m just going to link you over to his post:

Christmas Giving Guide 2011

Whatever, however, and to whomever you give this year, I pray that your giving will glorify God in amazing ways. It’s beautiful to me how even simplest gift to a family member can bring honor and glory to the One whose birthday we are celebrating. May your giving strengthen your relationship with Christ in the most beautiful of ways!


I am a homeschooling preacher's wife and managing editor for the Well Planned Gal. But, I also love to write just for the fun of it. I also process best through writing, and my thoughts tend to flow from things I learn through the Bible, interacting with my family, and moving through life in general. Thanks for joining me in my not quite ordinary journey.

What are your thoughts? I'd love to hear from you!
