“In everything I did, I showed you that by this kind of hard work we must help the weak, remembering the words the Lord Jesus himself said: ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’”

– Acts 20:35 (NIV)

Many of us may get stressed around the holiday season searching for the perfect gifts for everyone on our lists. That’s because we forget why we should give. We give to help, to show love, and to be like Christ.

Still, it’s challenging to not get wrap up in just buying things this time of year. One family decided to make it a point to give lifesaving gifts in order to help transform lives this Christmas.

For Jay and Michele-Lyn Ault, the World Help Christmas Giving catalog gave them a way to refocus on the birth of Jesus with their kids. After a stressful holiday season, the parents of four knew something needed to change.

“Christmas was really supposed to be about Jesus, and we were only spending a few minutes reading the Christmas story on Christmas Day,” Michele-Lyn said. “The rest of it was going to gift buying.”

During the year, the Ault family sets aside money in a red tin can they call “the Jesus Jar.” When Christmas comes, they take the money from the jar, and the Ault children each pick a gift from the catalog they want to give to someone in need.

“We have been given so much here, and we have the choice to consume it all or give,” Michele-Lyn said. “When God gave His son, He gave because He loved the world — so because we love God, we love the world, and we give.”

When you give a gift through the World Help Christmas Giving catalog, you choose how you will transform a life. Whether you give the gift of clean water to a person in need, a Bible to a persecuted Christian, or a pair of chickens to an impoverished family, you will be meeting their physical needs as well as sharing the love of Jesus this Christmas.

This holiday season, leave the stress behind and join with your family to give hope to people around the world.
