    based on 71 ratings

    At Christmas, we might wonder what made Mary so special to God? We may find the answer in one word she used to describe herself to Gabriel: "Handmaid".

    Mary the "Slave-Girl" Luke 1:26-38 Pastor Dave Campbell Mary must have been quite a girl. To be chosen of God to bear His Son and raise Him to adulthood was no small thing! When the angel Gabriel appeared to her and spoke of God’s plan for salvation and her part in it all, she responded more

    Contributed by Joseph Smith on Jul 3, 2001
    based on 381 ratings

    Christ comes to dwell in our messy, imperfect homes, just as they are, to build love, not a museum-like perfection.

    A house is not a home. A house is not a home. A house is a house, and it may be lovely to look at and fine to visit, but a house, by itself, is not a home. What is the difference? Let me tell you a tale of two houses. These are the best of houses, these are the worst of houses. See if you more

His own future was uncertain; the nation’s stability was shaky; the confidence of those around him was low; and, most of all, his relationship with his son was in jeopardy. There had been a more

    The story of the angels isn’t so much about a heavenly sing-song than God announcing the end to the war between himself and the human race.
