Christmas. Just the word makes our hearts stir. Beautiful trees strung with tinsel and lights. Carols ringing through a frosty night. This is a special time of year when hearts, hands and homes are open, to each other and to the Savior.

The Spirit will guide you to know exactly how and with whom to share the gospel this year as you consider these five principles and ideas for their application.
