Jesus Christ is my hero, and this Christmas I want to celebrate him. At the beginning of the year, I read a book by Emily Freeman, in which she described one Christmas when she had each of her children pick their favorite image of Christ for a present. The picture had to be one that strengthened their testimony in some way. I thought it was a good idea, so for everyone's birthday this year, we let them choose a picture of Christ to hang on the wall, as well as a fun present.
I wanted to share the pictures we chose:
|My husband chose this Carl Bloch painting of the angel comforting Christ|
|My thirteen-year-old wanted a picture of the premortal Christ. |
He chose this one by Robert T. Barrett. He sells his prints from his website,
and it was fun to contact him directly.
|My ten-year-old chose this picture of Elijah and the priests of Baal that shows the power of God.|
|My youngest chose this painting of Jesus raising the daughter of Jairus by Simon Dewey.|
