I’ m just going to say it.
There are only 24 days until Thanksgiving, and 51 days ’til Christmas. It appears the holiday season is officially upon us.
Does reading that make your blood pressure rise and your stomach begin to churn? Me too! I’m already calculating how much shopping time I can squeeze in, what our budget will allow, the recipes for my holiday menus, when I am going to have time to decorate my home, scheduling time to see everyone, and how I’m going to fit it all in on top of my normal life and work responsibilities!
No doubt about it, the holidays can be the most stressful time of year for all of us.
But friend, holiday stress does NOT have to be our fate because when our hearts at peace, our holidays can be too.
I’ll be posting articles throughout the season on my blog addressing the most common stressors that many of you mentioned in the comments last week. But in addition, I have some fun things coming up and I hope you will join me, and even consider inviting your friends!
I am so excited to be hosting two live conference calls in November and December through Proverbs 31 Ministries as part of my ‘Managing Holiday Stress’ Conference Call Series. We will talk about how to handle many common holiday stressors, plus discuss fun and inspirational topics like budget friendly gifts, holiday traditions and how to keep Christ in Christmas.
I have devoted a full page on my website to fully inform you about these calls. Click here to get detailed information about the conference call series. Space is limited, so don’t delay in reserving your spot! I would love to chat with you and my prayer is that the information shared will help you have a stressed-less and Jesus-filled holiday this year.
I will also be hosting three live holiday Facebook parties this month and next, which are going to be so much fun! We’ll have lots of questions, conversations, and many fun giveaways including free books, gift cards, holiday items, and several sets of my free conference calls. Click here to hop over to Facebook and accept your invitation to the party!
The holidays don’t have to be all stress and no joy and this is the perfect time to embrace the peace that Jesus came to bring.
Let’s kick off this season together with our hearts filled with peace, our faces filled with smiles, and our holidays filled with joy.
