I know you have probably read your share of Holiday posts, but this is a very important one! This article is for all you wives and mothers who desire to have a stress free Christmas with your family.
I am not one to try and fight the crowds during Christmas. In fact, even if I try my anxiety kicks into high gear. If I want to enjoy Christmas I have be intentional about keeping it low-key.
Here are a few ways to enjoy a stress free Christmas:
– Take some time to pack a gift box for a needy child through Operation Christmas Child and teach your children the joy of generosity.
– Get a Christmas CD or use your ipod to play only a few seconds of a Christmas tune and have your family guess the title of the song! This one is really fun and gets everyone laughing!
– Instead of going to the mall or a department store to shop, intentionally go to find a family you can bless with money or a gift card. You can even offer to pray for the family you are blessing.
