Faith Filled Christmas

Tagline: One family. One day. One purpose. Short description: The Fairway family is determined to honor God during the Christmas season. But serving God never looks quite as we expect. Grandparents Simon and Mildred (retirement community residents) realize they must spend the day apart in order to seize the ministry opportunities available. As Simon and Mildred follow God, He goes to work in ways both great and small: mayhem and ministry rage at the retirement community, Mildred and her grandson experience a very special day at the beach, and a foster child visits her biological mother. Faith Filled Christmas tells the story of a very special family and their style of ensuring that Christmas is seasoned with significance.
