I am a Navy wife, currently living in Southern Virginia, home schooling my two oldest children, and chasing my youngest. I'm also very active in my church. This year, I was blessed to help write and compile a book of Advent devotionals for my church family. Some of the entries are mine, while others were contributed by brothers and sisters from my church. To encourage friends and family, I wanted to share these these selections from "By the Light of a Star: Devotions, Poems, Prayers, and Meditations to Encourage You at Christmas Time."
