A Present for the Birthday Boy

In all of your holiday preparations, did you remember to buy the birthday boy a gift?

Now before you rush off to the mall in search of the perfect gift for Jesus, let me save you some time and recommend you browse through the Compassion catalog. It's full of gift ideas and the prices range from $5 - $325 with many prices in between.

There are several ways you can implement gifts of Compassion into your Christmas giving.

You can be like Jessica's family, who forgoes all gifts and only gives to Jesus. Each member chose a gift from the catalog to give to birthday boy.

Or you can forgo material gifts to extended family members and give them gifts of honor. This is what we are doing and I was pleased to find appropriate gifts in the catalog that held meaning for our family members.

For example, there are 3 new babies on my husband's side of the family so we chose to feed babies for survival.

There is a dental student in the family and so we chose dental care.

One of our grandparents used to own a school supply store....

You get the idea. There really is something for everyone in the catalog - and ultimately it's a gift for Jesus so you can 't lose!

Here is a great video you can watch to see how other families are using the catalog.

And here's another one showing how it works.

I would LOVE to hear how you are using the Compassion catalog in your family this year.
