Wrapping up this year's Christmas is Coming Series, Krista and Alex talk about what God is teaching them, what they are letting go of, the power of "Oh Well," and their ritual for reflection as they contemplate the past year and look forward to the one ahead.

Christmas is a time of joy, but it also highlights the pain some are experiencing. Krista and Alex offer a helpful prayer and perspective as people navigate both.

Listen in as you are driving around shopping for last minute gifts, whipping up something special in the kitchen, or taking a much needed walk. Let's finish out 2021 together!

If you listen to anything this Christmas season, listen to this conversation with Nancy Hicks. She lost her son to cancer this year and she shares with us what this Christmas season means to her. It is raw. It is powerful. And it approaches grief with such honesty you won't know what hit you.
 
God didn't come as a savior over two thousand years ago to save us from our comfortable lives, he came to rescue us from our real pain. That's not a free pass from experiencing loss, it's an invitation to sit with him in authentic tenderness. And anger? Oh she covers that too.
 
Nancy covers how to approach grief this Christmas. If you are wondering how you're going to face the holiday because of disappointment, loss, anger, please push play and then let us know what you think.

Tama Fortner is a mom to college aged kids. She can look back with clarity on the ways she managed (and mismanaged) the Christmas years throughout her mothering career. This episode is full of Tama, Krista, and Alex’s insights on helping moms manage Christmas, keeping the special without keeping the crazy.

 

Tama shares some easy recipes, how she divides and conquers on food responsibilities, and how she creates gifts themed around what someone loves. We talk through how to manage a child’s gift request that parents aren’t willing or able to fulfill and how to approach the child about the why behind the decision.


Whether you are wanting to simplify food or gifts, you are wanting to ensure you keep the holiday season meaningful, or you simply want some fresh encouragement as you step into a busy few weeks, this episode will break down how a few moms consider food and gift choices this time of year. Tama’s new devotional book is titled Simply Christmas, and it’s about keeping the simple in Christmas.
