  1. I signed up for the magazine today and thought I was getting several free things looks like you only get a couple items depending on which part of the site you respond to. I wanted more on Christmas. Can I get the extra fee things?

      Johnnie, you should have access to everything on the site. If you search for Christmas on the site, over 10 pages of results will come up. Let us know if you need anything.

  2. Hello. The link to the 4th free lesson “Jesus the Best Gift Ever” does not work. We started using these series and I nees this lesson for this Sunday. I hope you can help me.
