Countdown to Christmas – Day 12

The little brown bags I’m using in the Countdown to Christmas aren’t big enough for today’s surprise! In fact, today’s gift is not for Joe…or for me.

It’s for YOU!

Joe and I are thrilled beyond even the happiest of Christmas cheer to share that we have co-authored a 365-day devotional book on the promises of God, and it is available as of TODAY!

Containing 365 promises from the Bible (and over 400 total verses*), Petals of Promises makes a great Christmas gift, birthday gift, “Happy 2018” gift, or a “Just Because It’s Tuesday” gift for your family, your friends, and you!

From the back cover of the book:

“This year, this month, this day, this moment. Each is a gift from God. The Bible contains numerous promises from this gift-giving, promise-keeping God, and they, like all Scripture, can teach us, correct us, and guide us (see 2 Timothy 3:16-17). This year-long devotional book contains daily readings written by husband-wife authors Joe and Brenda Henderson, each using his or her own perspective when sharing the various promises of God. The daily entries are brief, encouraging, and based solely on God’s promises in Scripture.”

Merry Christmas from the Hendersons!

Suggested Scripture reading today in the Countdown to Christmas: Luke 12 (or listen to it here via

Luke has 24 chapters. Even though some are QUITE long, I love to read the 24 chapters of Luke on the days leading up to Christmas and then re-read Luke 2 on Christmas day!
