Knowing Jesus should bring a peace to our lives that surpasses all else. Celebrating His birth should be a beautiful time of sharing the Light of the world with others.
Yet, as the holidays approach many people fall apart, Christians included. We get wrapped up in all the busyness of the season and forget to let Christ’s peace reign in our lives. We worry about holiday meals, presents, relatives, and keeping sane through it all.
This year, I could easily get “too busy” and lose my peace and focus in the process. Our family has some traveling to do, some decisions to make, and I’m due with baby #9 just days before Christmas.
Back in 2008, I purchased The 12-Week Holiday Planner. Our daughter, Emily, had passed away earlier that year, and I was due with baby #6 on Christmas Day. Having that planner was such a blessing to our entire family. Now it has become a tradition at the beginning of every October to get out the green binder that holds my 12-Week Holiday Planner and purposefully plan so I can stay focused on WHY we celebrate Thanksgiving and Christmas, rather than muddying up the season with stress.
This year, I would like to invite you to join me in preparing for Christmas with the peace of Christ at the forefront of your planning as we journey through The 12-Week Holiday Planner together!
The 12 week series will begin on October 5 and will be hosted here on Raising Arrows, with Sheri Graham as the guest writer. Sheri is a homeschool mom who loves to blog about homeschooling, homemaking, healthy eating, home business, and more. Her desire is to provide encouragement to the Christian family, touching on matters that are close to her heart. Sheri sells a variety of ebooks on homeschooling and homemaking, as well as publishing books in print and Kindle formats.
Let’s start preparing!
