DJ and Brittlee Flynn contemplate the eternal majesty of the birth of Jesus Christ who came as a light unto the world. They know from personal experience the magnificence of receiving a son from God, whom they named Wyatt, and being entrusted with the care of a little one while he fills his purpose on Earth. They have a deep empathy for Mary and Joseph and the paths they were wont to travel as they raised the Son of God to fulfill his divine purpose on the Earth.
