Merry Christmas! Yes, December 25th, 2014 has come and gone, but who says we can’t celebrate and rejoice in the coming of our Savior Jesus Christ any day? 🙂 We were so glad to be able to remember the birth of our Lord at home and to worship at our home church. After 75 dates and over 25,500 miles across the United States, we are off the road until next year and relishing these moments of refreshment. Plans are also forming for our fifth CD, Arise to the Call, to be recorded in January — Lord-willing! (We can’t wait to tell you more about it!)
It is our prayer that you had a wonderful Christmas season, cherishing your family and praising God for His good gifts. Remember, Jesus was given UNTO YOU! He is the only source of peace, joy, and love; hope and salvation can be found in no one else.
We have much news from this year and will be sending out a ministry update via email soon — stay tuned! In the meantime, here are a couple pictures from our family’s Christmas Eve photoshoot. 🙂

Merry Christmas from our family to yours! What a wonderful gift our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ is! It is a joy to know Him as our personal Savior.
As a present from us to you, we are offering a free MP3 download of “Silent Night” from our Christmas CD. It is one of our favorite songs of the album. Click here to download your copy! Also, don’t forget to read our Christmas letter.
Here are some photos from our Christmas Eve photo shoot – enjoy!

We pray you and your family had a delightful, most blessed Christmas; ours was relaxing and reflective, and we enjoyed our time at home. May you continue to be blessed exceedingly throughout the rest of this year, and into 2012!
“But when the fullness of time had come, God sent forth his Son, born of woman, born under the law, to redeem those who were under the law, so that we might receive adoption as sons.”
(Galatians 4:4-5 ESV)
Blessings and Joy in the Journey! The Garms Family
A special thanks to everyone who came to our special Christmas concert at our home church, St. Stephen’s Lutheran, on December 4th! We enjoyed dusting off our Christmas songs, debuting some new ones, and even rearranging some off of our latest CD (you should hear the LAs exciting new arrangement of “Go Tell It On the Mountain” with full instrument back-up now; my favorite part is the ending – it’s awesome!). It was so neat to have friends and family in attendance (Grandpa Pete stayed the weekend and sister Uli came to the concert) – and we made new friends as well. It was a blast!
We were extremely blessed and flabbergasted by the generosity of our friends: St. Stephen’s has been raising money for our family while we’ve been away at concerts on Sundays. Pastor Anderson presented Dad and Mom with their gift, along with the freewill offering. Wow. Thank you all SO much!
We’ve been having a wonderful time at our other Christmas concerts as well! Last night we had an enjoyable evening at Kost Evangelical Free Church in North Branch, MN with friends new and old – thank you Linda for having us come to your church! And, we were thrilled to return to Eagle Bend Assembly of God this last Sunday (the meal was absolutely delicious, y’all!). We’ve been so blessed.
Here’s a highlight from our concert at our home church; enjoy!
Blessings and Joy in the Journey! Taylor for the Garms Family
