Jesus Christ is the “Light of the World” (John 8:12)

Last year the LDS Church started a Christmas initiative, Light the World, during the month of December. Its purpose is to share the Light of our Savior Jesus Christ through love, and service. This changed my family’s Christmas last year. This year thousands are ready to participate again. It starts today and runs through Christmas Day. To learn more about Light the World go to and see the video that is shown in 33 languages. They also have a calendar that you can download HERE.  A Year of Family Home Evenings has a calendar for kids to participate HERE.

Jesus taught us, “Ye are the Light of the World,” (Matthew 5:14) You can participate in any way that works for your family. For ideas to do service check out JustServe and download their app to find service ideas near you. Share your experiences on social media using the hashtag #LIGHTtheWORLD. I’m so excited for this Christmas Season and I will also be doing giveaways of "a few of my favorite things". Watch for those on my Instagram @roots2blossoms
