God Reached Down from Heaven with the Best Gift of All A sacred season is about to unfold for three women whose hearts belong to God. Elizabeth is barren, yet her trust in God remains fertile. Mary is betrothed in marriage, yet she is willing to bear God's Son. Anna is a widow full of years, yet she waits patiently, prayerfully for the Messiah to appear in the temple courts. Following in their footsteps, you too can prepare for the Savior to enter your heart, your mind, and your life in a vibrant, new way. Best-selling author Liz Curtis Higgs explores the biblical stories of Elizabeth, Mary, and Anna, unwrapping each verse with tender care and introducing you afresh to The Women of Christmas.

Let every heart prepare him room
Let all mortal flesh keep silence
The virgin mother kind
O tidings of comfort and joy
With heart and soul and voice
The wondrous gift is given
And our eyes at last shall see him
Joy of every longing heart.
