It's Christmas week. Here's a roundup of the best posts from around the web to help you celebrate with faith, friendship and fun.

Merry Christmas Week!

To help you fill those quiet moments… (I know. What quiet moments.) But if and when you get a few minutes to yourself I thought it might be fun to share some of my favorite Christmas posts.

So, I’ve been making a list and checking it twice…

I’ve gathered posts to inspire your faith, bless your friendships, and even a few to give you ideas for fun and food.

May you and your loves be blessed with a beautiful Christmas celebration.
