A Season of giving

We have come to a very special time of year when people tend to be (or should be) a little kinder, a little more grateful, and also maybe a little more cheerful. I’ve been working on some Christmas artwork lately – check out my illustration blog to see – but this one in particular is a little special to me.  First of all, I did it in a completely different medium (I drew it in pencil, scanned it in, and colored it digitally), but it also was created for the purpose of reminding people of the meaning behind this season and to encourage charity. I call it “Charity from a Child.” I think there is something beautiful about the selflessness and kindness young children often show. Where do we lose that innocence? Jesus Christ was innocent, compassionate, and kind.  He was the only adult to preserve that little special something kids have for his whole life. I hope we can all be a little better this season, myself included.

About sisterweber

I am currently a Mormon missionary serving in western New York for The Church of Jesus Chirst of Latter-Day Saints! Let me tell you how strange I am currently - I don't watch tv or any form of entertainment; I left behind my family, home, school, and art I love so so much; I'm working 6 days a week, 14 hours a day to bring people unto Christ; I'm not getting paid (I'm actually paying); and I CHOSE to do it! The reason why? I know this is the most important thing I could ever do. I know that there is nothing in all the world that can bring people greater happiness than the Gospel of Jesus Christ in its fulness. This message I'm sharing with people is unique and true. God loves all of us so much that He has restored the church Jesus Christ set up onto the earth again, and all people have a right to know. Everyone has a right to be as happy as I am.
