“Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith ... being rooted and established in love...”  Ephesians 3:17


WHAT DOES IT MEAN?


Today’s woman faces challenges in every area of her life: family, career, socially, health, financial, emotional, and spiritual. Sometimes it can feel overwhelming trying to manage it all. This ministry is here to offer hope and support as we encourage women to keep their focus on the cross, on Jesus.


Through bible study, prayer, service, Christian fellowship, and a sincere heart for Christ you will be transformed by the Holy Spirit – whether you are a new Christian or a mature Christian – transformation is continual for those who seek the Lord. Through transformation, not only will you and your life be changed, but you will help change the lives of others – in your family, at work, at church, and in the community!

Because of Bethlehem

Love is Born. Hope is Here.

For some, Christmas is a time of excitement, celebration, and quality time with loved ones. For others, it's full of loneliness, grief, and loss. Join New York Times bestselling author Max Lucado as he unwraps the enduring promises of Christmas and discovers a lifetime of hope, all because of one baby born in Bethlehem.


It's easy to lose sight of the remarkable story of Christmas. We forget that a king ordered a census, Joseph was forced to travel, Mary bounced on a donkey's back, the hotel was full, the hour was late, and the event was one big hassle. Yet, out of that hassle, hope was born.


In Because of Bethlehem, Max invites us to look at the Christmas story from a different perspective. He reminds us that Christmas is about more than a pretty tree with presents piled up underneath it. Christmas begins what Easter celebrates: the child in the cradle who goes on to become the King on the cross. Because of Bethlehem, we have a place on earth and a Savior in heaven.

In the midst of your hectic Christmas season, Max will give you the encouragement, advice, and tools you need to:

  • Rekindle your connection to the Christ of Christmas
  • Receive the promises of the Christmas season
  • Lay down your endless Christmas to-do list and trust what Jesus has already done
  • Heal your heartache by embracing the God who is always near you, always for you, and always with you

Each copy of Because of Bethlehem will also include an Advent Devotional Guide designed to help you reflect on the miracle of Christ's birth and the promise of his return.

As you curl up in a comfortable spot and take a closer look at the wild and wonderful story of Bethlehem, may you find enduring faith for all seasons of your life. No matter what this season holds for you, rest in the truth that the promise of Christmas has the power to bring you a lifetime of hope and healing.
