7th Day of Christmas Giveaway…..with Sharon Glasgow

Happy Sunday and welcome to the 7th Day of Christmas Giveaway. If you are just joining us in our 12 Days of interviews and goodies, click here to get caught up. You can enter to win the prizes on any of the 12 posts until midnight EST on Sunday, December 13th.

Today’s Proverbs 31 featured speaker is Sharon Glasgow. If you’ve ever longed for a spiritually in-tune friend, one who listens to God, knows His word and understands how to apply it to everyday life issues and difficult situations, then you will LOVE sweet Sharon. Her spiritual roots run deep and she is undoubtedly one of the most mature Christians I know— Don’t let the “she-is-so-pretty-and-looks-more-like-a-sixth-sister-than-a-daughter-in-that-photo” image on the P31 magazine cover below fool you! She looks like a teen, but is wise beyond her years. Today, take a few minutes to meet my P31 sister Sharon, in her own words:

sharonHi! I’m Sharon Glasgow. I live on a farm in Fredericksburg, Virginia with my husband and best friend Dale and our youngest daughter Elizabeth who is 14 years old. We have 5 daughters in all, Heather the oldest (26) is married to Jeff, they live in VA, Jennifer(25) works and lives in LA, CA, Hannah (21) and Rachael (19) are attending Virginia Commonwealth University.

We have owned our own business our entire marriage. Dale is a full time artist, and is able to work from home while I work along side of him writing and preparing messages to speak across the nation. Our daughters have followed in our footsteps, they are all artists and ministering.

Christmas is our favorite time of year, when we’re all together. We’re always huddled close to the fireplace and sharing what God is doing, giving spiritual insights and encouraging each other in the Word.

If you would like to connect with me, please visit my website @ www.sharonglasgow.com. I don’t have Facebook yet, but our daughters made me a fan page, www.facebook.com/pages/Sharon-Glasgow/89772909801. I pray you have a Merry Christmas!

Now, for our get-to-know-you interview:

Sharon, can you share a Christmas tradition your family has done over the years that stands out to you?

Christmas is a very hard holiday for many people who are suffering. I’ll never forget my first Christmas without my dad. I wondered if anyone really understood how bad my heart hurt that holiday.  The next Christmas I decided that from then on our family would start a tradition to minister to hurting families on Christmas Eve.

That year we knew of two families who had lost loved ones, a family who had undergone financial devastation and a lonely old man down the road. These would be our Christmas Eve targets. We made gingerbread houses and hot crab dip to deliver to them. We made everything look as festive as possible and then loaded the family and presents  into the vehicle and started out on our Christmas Eve journey.  

As each door opened you knew immediately you were where you belonged. One was drinking their sorrow away and cried when we gave the presents and offered to pray. The next didn’t have a tree up or anything cooked for Christmas, the hot crab dip would be their dinner. We finished our trip, I wish I could say the kids enjoyed it, but they didn’t! Instead they said, “This is the most depressing Christmas Eve ever, do we have to do it next year?” However, we kept our tradition going.  

Today as our children look back over all the holidays they may not remember what presents they got or how beautiful the tree was but they’ll always remember the faces of those people who were ministered to on Christmas Eve.

What are some of your favorite Christmastime foods? Any recipe you might share with us?

This is a recipe we have made for our Christmas Eve deliveries. The dish is a gift so look for deals throughout the year. We deliver the dish and baguette slices in a basket.

Crab Dip with Baguette Slices

  • 1 pound jumbo lump crabmeat, free of shells
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan
  • 1/4 cup green onions, minced, optional
  • 5 to 6 roasted garlic cloves or 2 cloves minced
  • 3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon
  • 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Directions: Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Combine all of the ingredients, stir and pour into a small casserole dish. Bake for 40 minutes. Serve hot with crackers or thin baguette slices toasted with a spray of oil on top.

CHRISTmas Blessings,


  1. There is a girl at the school I work at who lives with her grandparents and they don’t have alot. Mom is not in the picture much. My daughter and I shopped for her yesterday to bless her this Christmas. We are praying this little gal will be truly blessed this year.

  2. this woman i never personally met, but who’s husband works for Family Like, and who has blessed us all these many years with their encouraging letters and prayers.

  3. My friend who just returned from living two years in Paris. The adjustment has been difficult for her. Especially returning to MI where it is so cold and gray. I look forward to seeing her for coffee when I return for a Christmas visit.

  4. I have one friend still to purchase a gift for this Christmas and I really feel God wants me to bless her in a special way. My mind is still blank as to the how, but I’m trusting God to reveal that to me, and hopefully soon :)

    For the record, we don’t have Target stores here, so please don’t enter me in today’s drawing.


  5. God has been telling me over and over to support organizations that help children/people in 3rd world countries. I’m listening…

  6. God put on my heart for us to go and be with my husband’s family back on the East coast this Christmas. So it may be someone there the Lord may want us to minister/bless during this season. I’m keeping my heart open for the opportunity!

  7. There are 3 families my church is trying to get presents together for this Christmas. I lost my job a few weeks ago and we just don’t have the money to participate. This would be a great way to be able to get something for them.

    Julie =)

  8. There is a family whose daughter was in a serious car accident and I would like to do something for them this Christmas. Thanks.

  9. I feel like we need to bless our son’s preschool teacher…she is a single mom raising two beautiful daughters , working two jobs..and to top it off her birthday is Christmas day also!
