Do you enter every holiday wanting it to be meaningful, only to find that it feels chaotic with no direction?
We set New Year’s goals we can’t keep, struggle to love or be loved on Valentine’s Day, and find it hard to celebrate the risen Jesus when we are searching for the perfect Easter dress. Our summer and back-to-school seasons are whirlwinds, even as adults; we aren’t quite sure what to do with Halloween as Christians; and we feel less than grateful at Thanksgiving because it is sometimes full of complicated people. Even Christmas becomes a challenge, as celebrating Jesus gets lost behind twinkling lights and a mountain of gifts.
Holidays are meant to be more than chaos with glimpses of grace; they are meant to draw us closer to God and one another. We want all the whimsy and joy the holidays held when we were children, before life crowded it out. We want the holidays to reflect our love for Jesus and reveal the grace that has been lavished on us, but life is so busy that setting a game plan just doesn’t happen.
No more. It’s time to stop trying to survive the holidays or over indulge the whimsy, and instead live in the abundant life God called us to live.
Sacred Holidays is part book and part resource: meant to help you avoid what has tripped you up in the past and give you insights, tips, and tools to make your holidays less chaotic and more about loving Jesus and others.
Don’t let your holidays be marked by regret, whirlwinds, or survival mindset. Let’s celebrate every holiday together purposefully and worshipfully–loving Jesus and others well in every moment.
Whether you've been a mom for all of a day after seeing those two stripes or got the call that you've been matched with a child, or if it's been decades since you've first heard the words, "Mama," the emotions never quite change. They are constantly evolving, just like our children, but we have All The Feels regardless if our babies are swaddled in our arms or flew out of our nests years ago. Motherhood is this beautiful yet terrifying juxtaposition of emotions that only other mothers can fully get. We can trust God with our children, and yet fear what will happen to them. We can feel like we've had a #momwin of a day and seconds later we do a total #momfail. We can feel that we have this mom thing down, and yet feel wildly insecure in our ability to be a mom. We can be annoyed with our kids and find them absolutely hysterical. Motherhood brings us the deepest sorrows and the highest joys. All these emotions, and more, are processed through on these pages. This book is part story and part reflection to help you realize that you are not alone in feeling All The Feels. Through story, Scripture, and reflection questions, you will find freedom to feel All The Feels and live more confident today in whatever stage of motherhood you find yourself. Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths. Proverbs 3:5-6 We would LOVE to connect with you and follow along with your journey as you reflect on the emotions of motherhood!
