I was going to start the series with everyone else this week but due to being really laid up, I will be posting this weekend and officially starting on Monday. I am sorry for the delay. Love And Hugs, Sarah
It’s the first night of Hanukkah tonight. In my home we will light the candles together and celebrate the traditions that have carried our ancestors forward for generations. We’ll also be making the delectable dessert fritters below, a beloved family recipe. For more last minute recipe ideas, check out my Hanukkah and Winter Holiday categories.
Wishing you a season filled with love and Light, no matter which holiday you celebrate!”
From Sarah :
Having a late Thanksgiving certainly gave us a hurried Advent season. Hard to QUIET YOUR HEART when you have less time to prepare. It’s also hard to believe that Christmas Eve is less than 2 days away. That’s our big celebration night.
MERRY CHRISTMAS To all of you.
Love and Hugs, Sarah
Hello! The holly jolly-ness continued for the Fagan family over the weekend. With what feels like a very condensed holiday season thanks to such a late Thanksgiving, it seems like everyone is cramming all of the usual holiday festivities into a shorter time frame and our family is no exception. After we hosted our friends […]

Welcome to week three of our study. Here are this week’s resources:
THE STUDY GUIDE – FREE Printable Below
In the guide (find link below), you’ll find that I have selected scripture to read on Monday, Wednesday, and Fridays. On the alternate days it’s my hope that you’ll dig a bit deeper. For example, you could… look scripture up in your favorite commentary, read it in the interlinear Bible, look up words you want to gain a deeper understanding of, and watch sermons on the topic.
WEEK AT A GLANCE – FREE Printable BelowWeek at a glance is a synopsis of the study guide. It can be used as a book mark for your Bible, or you might want to put it up on your fridge as a reminder of each week’s focus. I printed mine out on card stock, and I’ll be keeping it in my Bible.WEEKLY QUESTIONS
For those who want questions for reflection or group study, I’ll have new ones each week.
BIBLE VERSE CARDS – FREE Printable Below
Each week I’ll give you seven cards. There are 30 in total. I cut mine out, hole punched them, and put them on a little binder ring so I can meditate on one scripture/day. They’re so cute. I love them! These cards are a keepsake you can use for years to come. I picked Bible verses that remind me of the REASON for the season.
You don’t need to pick up a copy of my prayer journal to do this study with us. That’s totally optional. You can use any journal you have. In fact you could use a simple piece of paper. What I encourage you to do is to use your journal to journalize daily prayers, and to give thanks for a few things each day. ”
Around the holidays, there are three dishes I like to prepare on certain days: turkey (smoked or roasted) for Thanksgiving, ham (citrus and honey glazed) for Christmas, and a rib roast for New Years Day. My traditional rib roast recipe is featured in The Heritage Cookbook, but last weekend I wanted to try out a […]
