Christmas is right around the corner and I’ll admit! I’m more troubled each year to see what our society does to Christmas. We no longer keep Christ in Christmas.
Does your home feel busy and hectic more than peaceful and reflective
Would you like to scale back the materialism and focus more on Christ in Christmas this year?
Is time a challenge during the holidays? Needing more time? Or searching for down time?
Is it all out schedule chaos for you during the holidays?
Do you tend to go over board?
I want to help you focus on what’s important rather than all of the material things. I’ll share how I failed at Christmas (big time!) and the changes I made to keep the focus and peace of our holidays. If you’ve ever started crying from the stress, you’ll want to hear my story.
But, it’s not just in our homes. It’s everywhere we look that Christ is removed from Christmas.
An anonymous parent at an Arkansas school tried to stop a field trip to watch Merry Christmas, Charlie Brown because it had religious content and would be performed at a church . . . even though a parent could opt-out of the field trip. The attorney says this field trip oversteps the lines between church and state.
And in my own home town, the Office Depot clerk remarked on her headset they could not wish customers “Merry Christmas”. She went on to say, she could wish them “Happy Hanukah, Holiday, Kwanzaa” or whatever else!
I could go on and on, but I won’t.
When I look around me and see how empty and commercialized Christmas has become, I realize I need to watch out for my own family. I may not be able to change the world, but I can add purpose & meaning to celebrating Christmas in my home. I can be sure to keep “Christ” in the center of my family’s Christmas, and so can you!
If you are on the constant go, go, go or trying to slow down to remember the real reason of Advent & Christmas, I want to invite you to a free masterclass called, 3 Clues to Keep Christ in Christmas. This may be the most important online masterclass you’ll watch this entire year!

I love this “putting Christ back into Christmas” theme. We started it when our eldest was 4, he’s now 18, after a totally over the top family Christmas. I adore anything wrapped in paper, and Christmas trees and decor make my heart sing, but the meaning of the “event” gets so lost in the commercialism and credit card debt.
Thank you for being brave enough to speak against the tide.Jayn, Homeschool Mom
