Are you feeling overwhelmed? Want a quick tip that can work better than a day at the spa? A quiet moment with God can be very simple and refreshing, especially during the rush of the holidays.

Are you asking the same question?
Will making time for Jesus this Christmas really change my life?
Choosing to spend time reading His Word and praying for a few quiet moments uninterrupted and without distractions is a life-changer. Taking just 60 seconds to stop and listen for His response may make all the difference.
