At His House, Thanksgiving and Christmas are very special for children experiencing anxiety and sadness during what should be an otherwise happy and joyous time for children. For many children living at His House, the Holiday experience they have with us is the first of many first experiences.
It is the first time they sit down as a family and enjoy a home-cooked hot meal sitting at a table joined in prayer and love; the first time they not only receive their first Christmas gift but one that is unique to them. The first time they may not only have a Christmas tree but actually be around others who love and care for them as they decorate it and put up the Christmas star or angel. It is through these special intimate times where they can truly experience the spirit of the holidays therefore creating positive memories.
