Merry Christmas, 4:13ers! This is an audio Christmas card to brighten your day and let you know how much we love you.
We’ve got a few of your favorite 4:13ers who want to give you their Christmas greetings, including Kathie Lee Gifford, Laura Story, and Kelly Minter. And then, Michael O’Brien will sing you his Christmas greeting.
We hope you are enjoying the peace and blessings of this season with the people you love.
But we also know that you may have lost someone you love, and it makes Christmas hard. So, we’re playing a song by Craig Aven that will bring you much comfort and joy.
We pray this will be an encouragement to you as you’re reminded of the true hope we have in Christ.

4:13 Podcast: Audio Christmas Card Featuring Your Favorite 4:13ers [Episode 225]
Jennifer Rothschild: Hey, this is Jennifer. I want you to meet somebody. She's my precious girl that I sponsor through Compassion International. She's a little girl from Ecuador who has no dad, but she has a Heavenly Father who is meeting her every need.
If you're like me, you can feel overwhelmed with all the needs of the world. COVID-19 has affected all of us, but it has devastated those who already live in poverty. We can't do everything, but we can do one thing, and that's what Compassion International allows us to do. It's a one-on-one relationship with a child who needs you, and it releases children from poverty in Jesus' name. So go to 413podcast.com/Compassion to meet my precious girl from Ecuador. And while you're there, I invite you, I challenge you, and I encourage you to sponsor a child along with me. That's 413podcast.com/Compassion.
And now it's time for some practical encouragement and some biblical wisdom on the 413. Merry Christmas!
K.C. Wright: Merry Christmas!
Jennifer Rothschild: We are so glad you're here. This is an audio Christmas card that is just to brighten your day and let you know how much we love you.
K.C. Wright: We've got a few friends who want to give you Christmas greetings also, and then Michael O'Brien will sing you his Christmas greetings.
Group of Women: Merry Christmas, 4:13ers!
Kathie Lee Gifford: Hi, everybody. I'm Kathie Lee Gifford, and I want to wish all of you God's great blessing at this beautiful season of the year, where we stop from all our busyness -- if we're wise, we stop from all our busyness -- and we remember that a baby was born. Whether it was in December or any other time, it doesn't matter. God sent his Son, his beloved, perfect Son, to be born for the express purpose to die that we might know life itself. God bless you all.
Laura Story: Hey, it's Laura Story. I'm a singer-songwriter, but most importantly I am Jennifer's friend, wishing you and your family a very merry Christmas.
Kelly Minter: Hey, everyone, it's Kelly Minter. I am the author of a Bible study on the Book of Ruth and also the host of the Cultivate Podcast. But even more important, I am a friend of Jennifer Rothschild. And so I am here to wish all of you 4:13 friends a very, very merry Christmas.
Michael O'Brien: Hey, this is Michael O'Brien., And I am Jennifer Rothschild's brother in Christ, and she's one of my dear friends. I hope you have an amazing Christmas. Actually, have yourself a blessed little Christmas.
(Singing Have Yourself A Blessed Little Christmas)
K.C. Wright: We hope and pray that you are enjoying the peace and blessing of this season with the people you love. I learned a long time ago, it's not about what's under the tree, it's who's next to you under the tree. Amen?
Well, we also know that you may have lost someone you love, and it makes Christmas hard. And as we close, it is our prayer that this song, The Sweetest Gift by Craig Aven, brings you comfort and joy.
Jennifer Rothschild: Yeah. Merry Christmas.
K.C. Wright: Merry Christmas.
Craig Aven: (Singing The Sweetest Gift)
