Christmas traditions vary by family and organization, but I wanted to share a new one from the Focus campus here in Colorado Springs.
For the first time ever, we planted and lit a 30 foot evergreen tree here at the front of our property. We also dedicated and lit a beautiful new creche beside it.
Just a week after the lighting, a massive windstorm of 100 mph gusts blew through the town, toppling ten other trees on our property.
The Focus Christmas tree survived!
I hope you’ll enjoy this short video. Please come see us in Colorado Springs some time.
From our home to yours – Merry Christmas!
-Thank you for the “card” and the story to go with it. This newsletter always blesses my heart.

-Merry Christmas FOF! Loved the video. I have been following Focus since the 1970’s and brought my children up on Focus wisdom and advice. Thank you for what you do! May God Bless you in the coming year and beyond. Kathy C
-Thanks! We miss the Springs and the neighborhood just up the hill from Focus, but we’re thrilled to see the hood work continuing beyond Dr James’ leadership. Can’t wait for our grandchildren to follow in their parent’s footsteps and have many an Adventure in Odyssey. Blessings to you all.

-So glad to see Focus campus again. We have been for almost 3 years in Texas now after living in Colorado Springs for 40 years and working at focus on the family as volunteers for about 15 years. God bless all of you and the work that you’re doing. I’m so thankful the tree did not go down in the wind. Have a merry Christmas Ralph and Jimmie Bohannon
