… Okay! Now onto this week's encouraging episode!
Today is all things Christmas! Alexandra Kuykendall is my guest on the show today and we're going to be talking a lot about Christmas — including an experiment that she did in her home last Christmas. It was really interesting! She wrote a book all about it called Loving My Actual Christmas. Can I hear a little”Amen” out there? Too many times we look on social media and we start thinking, "Oh I wish we did this or that," when we really need to slow down and just enjoy this season for what it is. Even if you don't get to all the traditions that you want to, take time to savor this Christmas! I want to help you to give yourself permission this season to slow down. To pick one or two things, with your family, and enjoy this Christmas fully!
I can't wait for you to hear this episode with Alexandra—and Merry Christmas!
