Intentional Gifting and Gutsy Girls: Strong Christian Women Who Impacted the World The year was 1985, and I wanted one thing for Christmas. Other kids could keep Care Bears, Pound Puppies, and She-Ra action figures. Those were not for me. I had my eye on something better; I coveted the wildly popular, Family Feud board [...]
