On today’s solo podcast episode, I am taking to the show to share about the importance of cultivating a truly Spirit-led holiday season and how we can go about doing so. My prayer is that you would walk away from today’s talk feeling inspired and equipped to really live out the fruits of the Spirit this Christmas!

What She Chats about in Today’s Episode:

~The importance of walking by the Spirit during the holiday season, and listening to the Lord rather than man

~Three steps for walking by the Spirit this Christmas:

*Pray

*Be in the Word

*Pray some more!

~Creative and yet practical tips and ideas for how to prioritize those things which make Christmas special for your own unique family, while at the same time saying “no” to the hurry and stress; really soaking up the beauty of this season

~The crucial importance of showing your friends and family Christ-like love this Christmas – whether you see eye-to-eye with them or not: 7 tips for how to do so:

*1. Assume the Biblical Position (and, no, I don’t mean the republican or pro-life position; I mean James 1:19-20).

*2. Assume the best about the other person.

*3. Speak with love.

*4. Focus on what does unify you.

*5. Understand what the holiday is and is not for.

*6. Understand that it is humility, love, and kindness that changes hearts and inspires repentance – not your beating someone over the head with truth.

*7. Seek to understand where the other person is coming from, and be teachable.

~How to take your eyes of Pinterest (if it’s not serving you well!) and plan for a truly lovely holiday season
