Welcome back to Parents Talk, a conversation with parents for parents!
Today, Jay and Amy begin a conversation about the holidays!
From traditions to stories, to the stress and the expectations that come with the holiday season,
Jay and Amy hope to encourage you to as you get ready for Thanksgiving and Christmas.
We love Thanksgiving and Christmas. But they haven't always been as fun and stress free as they are today. Our culture has elevated the holiday season raising the levels of expectation and stress for parents. From finding the perfect gift to giving the very thing they wish for, it's sometimes a challenge to get it right. We have had our fair share of years filled with stress and disappointment because we have focused on Christmas lists and shopping instead of being thankful and celebrating the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ.
The holiday season doesn't have to be stressful or disappointing. You can give and receive gifts, spend time with family and friends, and celebrate and enjoy the holiday season. In this episode of Parents Talk, we share how we have changed the way to we look at the holidays. From the planning, to the shopping, to the gift giving, to the day after, rediscover the joy of the season! We're talking about the holidays!
In this episode we mentioned a few resources that we have used with our kids. We shared these ideas because we participate in OCC every years, and we love both books, Jotham's Journey and A Time To Remember. This was a sponsored or product video. We did receive anything for mentioning the resources. To learn more about the items we mentioned, click on the links below.
