With the holidays upon us it is hard to not get the wrong idea about the holidays. It can become a time where you are caught up in the frenzy of all the different ads and sales that are around you, if you aren’t proactive in filling your heart with the real meaning of Christmas. You can show your children the magic of Christmas by leading in that example and not allowing the way past holidays have been to completely take over.
