Letters to Jesus

This year what if instead of writing letters to Santa, we wrote prayers to Jesus. Maybe let’s try writing a Christmas prayer to Jesus. Let’s pour our heart and our belief into it. Let’s have the expectation that His desire is to grant us the petitions of our heart. We could even ask our families to join us. Let’s start a new tradition.

Uninhibited

Kids learn fear, self consciousness, and timidity and they turn into us — adults. This year, let’s get back to our truest, boldest, most confidence, bravest selves. Let’s live in our authenticity. Let’s boldly sing our song to the world. Who knows — just maybe they will sing along.

From Thankful to Thoughtful

As we move into gifting season, be mindful not to simply scratch off people’s gifts like to-dos on a grocery list. Select thoughtful gifts. Gifts that speak to your loved ones truest selves. Give (gift) from your heart ❤ as Christ gave from his. Christmas is about love and love is kind and thoughtful.
