The holidays are often stressful, with a calendar full of events and parties, shopping and other preparations. But this song, “Do You Have Room?” by Shawna Belt Edwards reminds us of the Reason for the season, inviting us to make room in our lives for the Savior, Jesus Christ.

Shawna is posting an inspirational story every day for 40 days on her website. Most of these stories have been sent to Shawna from people who are sharing how they or others in their lives have made room for the Savior. So far, she’s shared seven stories.

Day 7: In My Arms Again

Day 6: From a  Hum­ble Apart­ment in Oregon

Day 5: Christ­mas the Way it Was Meant to Be

Day 4: Bal­loons and Birth­day Cakes in Michigan

Day 3: Christ­mas at the Waffle House

Day 2: A True Friend in Virginia

Day 1: From India
