>> this is a meaningful project going on. >> 22 years this year. >> this year to know that 6,600,000 children will really be receiving the gift of goodness, why do you want to do this time and time again? >> what it is, we have got 60,000 that's going to iraq. we collect about 10.2 million this year for children in 110 different countries. but i believe that these -- you know, the children of the world, god made us and created us. and christmas is about going giving, god gave his son to this earth to take our sins. and if we're willing to put our faith and trust in him he will forgive us of his sins and heal our hearts. christmas is about god giving. the bible says that god so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son that whosoever should believeth in him shouldn't perish but have everlasting life. these boxes, we ask people to take a box and fill it with toys for a child.
school supplies in here pencils and pens and tooth brushes. >> glimpse of the greatest gift that we have in christ. pure joy. reverend, this is what is happening across the globe. >> we ask everybody that pack as box to pray for the child who will get the box. no one -- i mean, i don't know where a person's box is going to go. god does. god will answer the prayer of one righteous personal. can you imagine 10 million people praying for 10 million children what god will do this christmas in the hearts and lives of these little children around the world? you take the refugees in the middle east. about 70% of the refugees are children. and they have lost their homes. they have lost everything that they have known or loved has left behind. and they are afraid, they are cold, they are scared.
and when you can give a gift to them. the joy and the hope that it puts in their heart that somebody out there loves them and hasn't forgotten them. >> kids pack it up. we know as doing it as a family. kids across the globe in their hearts and sharing that message is so important. i have to think that dad had such influence on you and spirit of giving and loving. how is he doing? >> he is 96. he is doing fair. it's been a hard year for him. >> yeah. >> he is just slowing down. but his health is still pretty good. and, you know, he meets with family and friends. people come by to see him every few days. so he is staying connected. but he is just moving ayr8 little slower this year. >> aren't we all? you know, i think a lot of people can say that but not slower in heart at all. you have 10 grandchildren. >> 10 grandchildren. >> how are you celebrating christmas this year? >> we will have some of them -- i have a son in the
army. he will come with his family and spend christmas. we are looking forward to that. >> we thank him for his service and his entire family. what's your message to everyone this christmas? >> that god loves sinners and that god is willing to forgive sin. and this christmas god will heal your heart. he will forgive you and he will take the pieces of one's life and he will put it together and he will make sense out of it. there are so many people out there that feel the things that they have done, they will never be forgiven that god can't forgive them. >> no matter what they have done? no matter what i have done this week. how bad i have been? >> many people feel that god cannot forgive them. he will. you have got to come to him through faith in christ. jesus christ is the only one to take our sins. no other person in history has taken our sins except christ. when he went to the cross and he head his blood and suffered on that cross for our sins, he was buried for ourñh
>> what a message to share and gift to give to so many families across the globe. thank you and best to your dad. big hug to him this christmas. >> thank you. >> merry christmas to you. and now steve is over with another friend of ours, scottie mccreery with some cheer. in just a few short years from when we met him on "american idol," scottie mccreery has become one of america's favorite country stars. we are glad to have him back this christmas. >> glad to be here. >> how do you spend christmas. >> i get away for christmas. we go home. raleigh, north carolina. we have a good time. >> what are the traditions at the mccreery house in your head now you say that i is christmas glun before those things where the family gets together. as much as i am on the road these days. cousins. santa in red sisters in
green. i don't know if that's the way it is around the world. >> is there a food loved one prepares that's what we have in our house. >> i'm a ham guy. as long as momma makes the ham i know it is the holidays. >> ham. very good. you cut an album a couple years ago it was a christmas album. >> i did, i did. >> it's got to be kind of weertd. even though they play it at christmas time, you record it during the summer, the fall. >> yeah, yeah. we did it smack dab in the middle of the summer. it's a little different when you are going going in there. 90 degrees. wearing short and t-shirt. let it snow. we try to decorate the place all nice and christmassy. >> it's hard to sing i'm dreaming of a white christmas when you really, really could use a big sweet tea. >> definitely. >> what are you going to do for us today? >> we're going to do a little elvis for you right now. a little santa claus is back in town. >> ladies and gentlemen, let's get to it to his album. santa claus is back in town.

from god to us. it goes like this. here is another chance. here is another chance, and it is not a chance that you have to get right perfectly on your own, but rather i as god am going to come in the form of a little baby. i am going to take your place, to die for you so you may have life. does that make sense? >> it does. and there is an innocence about children too. >> you can see the christmas in their eye and the wonder and the joy. the second chance you can see it in your children's eyes. >> clayton, if you could think of anyway that god could possibly come and give us the second chance, that would be acceptable to us, how about coming in the form of a baby sph . sure. >> a baby who doesn't stand in judgment over you and say if you don't do this i am going to get you, but a baby that begs to be cuddled and held. i love that. >> and what about for those people who say, you know, we have lost that vision. we have lost that idea. it is about santa claus and presents? >> it is okay that it is also
about that. those are very human things. god came to us in a human way, a messy way. what could be more human than a dirty diaper or a stable? stockings are very human. we celebrate in a human way, and i think god and the angels are up there very happy that we are very happy. >> we are happy that you are part of our family. you have been for years and we love you. >> thank you very much, guys. >> it is strange. brian used to glaze over when i would talk about spiritual things and now you are engaged. we've come a long way. >> you have come a long way. >> nice to have you here, father. >> now back to music. remember her? america fell in love with jackie when she was 10 years old and a contestant on "america's got talent." >> she is now 14 and her voice is more beautiful than ever. here is jackie evanco singing "the christmas song."

elf on the shelf and decorating the tree with my kids. >> look at that. >> fantastic. >> we have a lot of christmas traditions, but only one that lasts all year long. getting the kids to sit peacefully for a christmas picture. it is misleadingly looking. there they are. that was the christmas picture having dinner. it doesn't look like a big deal. i spent 12 months figuring out how to saw date them. they are like amazonian villages with their soul being stolen. when they were little they would speak in accents. how do you make them sit for a picture? >> what are their names? >> lily, buckley, hopey and dorothy. anymored after our siblings and relative. >> i like them all. i tell them all you are my favorite secretly. >> for me growing up christmas was every day of the year. my folks owned a christmas
store in my hometown charlotte, north carolina. so as retailers, busy, busy, busy. we were eating fast-food a lot of nights. we would make these peppermint christmas pecans and give them to my teachers and friends and neighbors. >> did you bring any here for us? >> i will. i will. >> yeah, your co-workers, you left them out. >> you make them with mom? >> we make them with mom and apple cider. >> did you have people come from other states to go to your parents' store just to shop? >> yes. >> and didn't your father cree 80 -- he created his own christmas tree? he invented a christmas tree? >> he worked with the manufacturers. >> and he made his own christmas tree? the fir. >> great tradition. >> coming up, we ask your kids to send us their christmas wishes and we will air some of the cutest that you sent us straight ahead. >> first, famed opera singer

i travel a lot. as it gets closer to christmas i try to think of all kinds of alternatives to getting home. if my flights get canceled or weather leaves me stranded someplace i don't want to be. i have had close calls of almost getting stranded in new york around a christmas. i wanted just to be home. but while i have gotten home later than i wanted, i have always made it home for christmas. no gift under the tree is as good as that for me. i thought of the first christmas about how joseph and mary had seen their plans to get home get all messed up as well. i'm sure they wanted to be back in nazareth for the birth of their baby, but instead they were stuck in bethlehem. i'm pretty sure that weather and airline schedules had nothing to do with that. they didn't realize it, but they were having an appointment with destiny. centuries earlier when the prophets predicted the birth of the messiah, the city for his arrival wasn't nazareth or
jerusalem. instead it was the sleepy little village of bethlehem. and it was inevitable their baby would be born there. i'm sure they suffered anxious moments trying to figure out what they were going to do if they didn't get home. after all, that's where their families were. that's where they would have support and comfort and be surrounded by those who could help make the birth as easy as possible. instead all of their hopes and prayers could not sway the will of god who had determined long ago how and where his son would be brought into the world. there are times in our lives when things go exactly according to plan. but when god has a bigger purpose we can possibly imagine, none of our efforts no matter how well intentioned or practical will ever be able to change his course for us. we may be able to get the airlines to change our flight, but only god can control the actual journey. and no matter how ipg strange
-- how strange or irrational it may seem to us, there really is a purpose to the path. we all want to be home for christmas and i hope you and i both make it. but being where god wants you to be, that is to be home for christmas. so here is wishing your christmas to be your best ever. >> she considers herself a singer and a reality star and a red neck. jesse james decker is here to share her family christmas story with you and she is going to sing for us too. >> you heard them earlier, recreating a christmas classic on the harp. the sons of serendip have another surprise for us when we come back. stay with us. you are watching a fox and friends christmas. >> ♪ for younger ♪ a glorious life sphoat. ♪ ♪ oh
