We Stopped Going House to House for the Holidays. Here’s Why.

Here’s the thing: Jesus has given YOU freedom. Even on the holidays.

This year, let us leave behind the obligation and lie that we need to be all things to all people.

Instead, let’s focus on honoring God with our lives while clinging to our own little families during the holiday season.

Slow down. Go to church or make a cup of hot cocoa and enjoy the day inside with your little family. Simply do your best to love and serve those around you without allowing pressure or obligation to consume you.

And most importantly, spread true joy and the love of Jesus with those you come across. It might even be a lot easier this time around because you’ll be rested enough to do so.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays, everyone!

With Grace,
