25 Days of Peace: December 12

As part of our new Gift Catalog, we created this activity guide to help you practice peace in small ways during the holiday season.

Today, look for signs of peace—or opportunities to wage page—amid your immediate surroundings…

Day 12: Soap as a Lesson in Perseverance

Watch our video to see shining examples of perseverance, courage, and hope from some of our refugee friends in Iraq.

Sometimes our lives begin to feel overwhelming and hopeless. But the truth is, we are surrounded by shining examples of perseverance, courage, and hope.

Take a few minutes to watch this video about our refugee soapmakers with your family or friends. You might also consider purchasing some of their soap to support their businesses.

Whatever you do, the next time you wash your hands or take a shower, let the soap you use remind you to think about and pray for our sisters in Iraq.

Come back tomorrow for day 13! You can also view the full 25 Days of Peace activity guide here.


Wage Peace in Iraq as You Wage Peace at Home…
