Love INC Impact Stories

Creating Christmas Memories

Posted by Paige Price on

"Michael" and "Kiana" shopped at a Christmas Store hosted by one of our partner churches last year. They have six children at home, with the youngest being just a few months old. Michael works two part-time jobs to support their family, but Kiana had to stop working because of ongoing medical issues that resulted from her previous job.

With the loss of her income and the addition of a sixth child, finances were tight and the kids' school referred them to Love INC to sign up for a Christmas Store shopping appointment. They were grateful for the assistance and had so much fun picking out gifts for the kids! They commented that the holiday season was a stressful thought, but the Christmas Store experience helped them relax and think about all the fun memories their family will make. They also appreciated that a volunteer took the time to listen to their story and pray specifically for their requests before they left.

Michael and Kiana's story illustrates how the Christmas Store is about more than helping families provide gifts for their kids, but about connecting, listening, and sharing God's love with those we serve. We are excited to meet other families like Michael and Kiana at this year's Christmas Stores!
