Christmas time is about the heart – it is about what we believe about Jesus. As a Christian I celebrate the beginnings of God’s redemptive plan. As a Christian parent I want my children to understand God’s story; but I also want to build strong family memories. So in the midst of, or maybe in spite of, the rush and hustle of this time of year I want to pause and plan so I can be heart focused in all that we do.
Over the years I have blogged a lot about Christmas: about keeping Jesus in the center of our celebrations, about making it heart focused, along with making it a fun family time. So here is a collection of posts that focus on getting ready – getting ready to make your Christmas a heart focus time in your family.
Christmas time is a busy time – but we still need to be intentional about teaching and training our kids’ heart. Don’t be distracted by other things.
Planning Christmas need not take all our time – especially if we focus on what is particularly important to our family instead of a generic to-do list.
