There is something special about the Christmas season. A quiet stillness sits in the cool air as we wait with wonder and anticipate the celebration of the One who has come as a descendant of Abraham to bless all the families of the earth.

The King of kings came as a baby over 2,000 years ago, not born to royalty in a shiny palace, but born in a manger next to the animals’ trough. Why was royalty born in such an odd place? Because God’s ways are not our ways. They are higher. In fact, His ways are often the exact opposite of our own human perspectives which leaves us in awe at the wonder of His love.

The Middle English word advent means arrival or approach—the Latin prefix ad meaning toward and ven meaning to come. The celebration of someone special is coming!

Please join us as we celebrate the gift of His presence—that special silent night when God sent a baby to us, for us.

It’s time to prepare our hearts for the Holy One to come. You will not want to miss this season. Please join us!

Many Blessings, Mindy Lee Hopman

About the Author

Mindy Lee Hopman is a Jewish believer, Bible teacher, author, and dynamic speaker with a Master of Arts degree in Religion from Liberty University with an emphasis in Christian Leadership. She also holds a Master of Arts degree in Education with an emphasis in Curriculum and Instruction from George Mason University.

Mindy's focus is on teaching believers how each person's individual faith story fits into the greatest story from the beginning to the end of time. Her grandfather was a great influence on her faith as a child, and even more as an adult when Mindy began to understand how her Christian faith directly connected to her Jewish roots.

Mindy's first book entitled Beautiful Legacy: Our Roots Run Deep uses personal narrative and Biblical application to trace the Jewish heritage of how one seed gives birth to the Christian faith-family tree. Mindy emphasizes the mystery of how, similar to the biblical olive tree, God grafts us into His faith-family tree in order for us to grow, thrive, and bear fruit. She helps readers recognize the origin of the Christian Faith Roots to pass the legacy on to future generations.

In her free time, Mindy delights in being with her family on the water boating or paddleboarding. She also enjoys walking her dogs (Jamaica & Champ), running in the early mornings, and taking sunrise/sunset pictures on the beautiful island where she lives.
