Beloved author and God Hears Her podcast host Elisa Morgan explores how God coming to earth as a human child transformed each of the biblical characters who experienced it firsthand. She reveals how the lessons of the first Christmas can change us today. We learn to say yes to God, accepting His design for our lives. We learn to rejoice, even when we don’t understand His ways.
