3 Things to Write in Your Christmas Card

Soon you’ll receive the Christmas card you’re going to send to your sponsored child. But what to write? You’ve only got a couple of lines and unless you’ve got the tiniest but most legible handwriting in the world, that means you’ve got to think smart about what to include.

Before the panic sets in, here are three helpful suggestions to make use of the short amount of space:

1. The highlight of your year

As much as you want to know about the life of your sponsored child, they want to know as much as they can about yours! Now is your opportunity to share your highlight of the year and give them a glimpse of your life.

For example: My favourite moment this year was when I moved house. What was yours?

2. How you celebrate Christmas

Christmas is celebrated in different ways around the world. For example, in rural Mexico some families carve radishes into nativity scene figures! However you celebrate, your sponsored child will enjoy hearing about your plans for Christmas Day.

For example: On Christmas Day, I attend church with my family and spend the afternoon at the beach. How do you celebrate Christmas?

3. Your prayer for the year ahead

Share a prayer you have for your sponsored child for the New Year. It can be something really simple, but that doesn’t make it any less important.

For example: I pray you will grow in your love for Jesus this year.

Now, that wasn’t so hard, was it?

Thank you for writing to your sponsored child this Christmas. Your message reminds your sponsored child they are loved and cared for—and the cards often become treasured possessions kept for many years.
