It’s the most wonderful time of year! Or is it? Are you starting to feel overwhelmed at the thought of homeschooling and trying to finish your Christmas to-do list? Well, today I am talking about eliminating the stress of the season by incorporating Christmas into your homeschool. This is the time of year we should be anticipating our Savior, not swamped in stuff.
Some ideas talked about in this episode:
- Unit studies- Special studies for Christmas ( Colonial Christmas unit study, studying Jesus’ birth, etc.)
- Letting kids address Christmas card envelopes or write notes
- Practicing random acts of kindness
- Delegating by incorporating your children into all the “to-do’s:- baking, wrapping, etc.

This summer, I am hosting a women’s retreat in Gettysburg, PA. In a world of excess, we are going to focus on that fact that Jesus is enough. The world will tell you YOU are enough. But truly, HE is enough. He is all we need. We don’t rely on ourselves, or earthly comforts, but on Him alone. I have lived with it all stripped away, and I have seen that yes, Jesus is enough. In fact, Jesus is MORE than enough.
