The Reality of Christmas: Choosing Joy Over Chaos

The kick-off has begun, and I am not talking about football! Although we’ve been watching lots of football at our house lately.

Christmas is just around the corner and how are we going to keep our joy and not freak out with all we have on our list? How can we worship Jesus every day in the middle of the Christmas rush?

If you are following me with my cousin Andrea in our Live Bold Series FB Group you would notice that we’ve offered  a free resource exclusive to our Live Bold Subscribers called, The Reality of Christmas: Choosing Joy over Chaos. I’m offering this to you too!

This is the first week of advent and the season of advent has long been a tradition in the Christian Calendar. Advent means, “coming” or “arrival” in Latin. I wanted to give you this Christmas gift early because I can’t wait to share it with you!

I am excited to offer, Reality of Christmas: Choosing Joy Over Chaos which is a free printable download designed to encourage your devotions this Christmas season. This is graciously made possible by Crossroads Church which happens to be where Cynthia’s son, Jordan and his wife Julie, are pastors.

I want to help you (because I need this too!) this Christmas to stay focused and fuel your faith in worship and reflect on the greatest gift ever given—Jesus Christ.

You’ve heard me share that I am a recovering perfectionist. It’s so easy to fall into the trap of thinking I have to provide the “perfect Christmas” for my family. If we are not intentional about getting our hearts ready for Christmas, we will fall into the trap of getting caught up in our to-do lists and shove Jesus out of the manger!

Will you join me for Reality of Christmas: Choosing Joy Over Chaos? It is four weeks and each week features scripture reading with reflection questions, activities you can choose to encourage you during the season, and a variety of family activities you can use with your kids and grandkids.

I’d also like to invite you to join me and my cousin Andrea as we will be hosting a FB Live each week on Wednesdays that reflects the week theme of bible reading and activities. We will also have some fun surprises along the way, because I love celebrations. The first video happened today and you can watch the replay. Just request to join the Live Bold Series FB Group to be inspired by the community of women choosing to Live Bold for Jesus!

Stay tuned and in the meantime download your Reality of Christmas: Choosing Joy Over Chaos copy and have it handy next to your bible.
