As our family gathers to celebrate Christmas in the President’s Home, we wish you a season overflowing with the joy and peace of Jesus Christ.

Like so many families of Hope students, we will be reunited with three of our own children who are away at college -- Tracy, Charlie and Mary. We’ll also be joined by our daughter Amanda, her husband Brian and our new granddaughter Sophia.

Our family is grateful to the extended Hope College family for the warm welcome we have received during our first semester on campus. It is indeed a blessing to be part of such a special community.

We pray that you will experience God's grace anew as we give thanks that “The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and Only, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth” (John 1:14, NIV).

Christmas blessings,
John and Kelly Knapp
