Tips To A Less Stressed Holiday

December 19, 2016



I come from a very large family. This year alone we have six, yes six Christmas. And if you are interested, that is just intermediate family (literally just parents and grandparents celebrations). So with that said we are ALWAYS very busy during the holidays.

So how do I maintain a stress-free holiday season? I don’t. Just kidding, I have gotten a lot better at not stressing as the years have come and gone.  It’s always a little stressful, not matter what but here are a few ideas that might help you out.

Plan: Plan ahead. Get with everyone in your family, tell them your situation and what you can and cannot accomplish during the holidays. Be honest. Don’t expect them to completely reorganize their schedule for you, but I bet they will appreciate the heads up and try to work a schedule that is good for you. While we are on the topic of planning, go ahead and cut out some work and plan you and your family’s outfits. Go ahead and get everything cleaned and ready and if you can go ahead and put it away so you can just grab it, iron it, and head on out when it is time.

Pray: I don’t just mean the “please let us get there on time” prayer. I mean to honestly pray, tell the Lord you are stressed out and need help controlling your emotions. Pray for the silliest of things, remember he wants to be a friend we can “vent” to and call on when we need help up.

Realize You Aren’t A Miracle Worker: You are human. You aren’t going to be able to make every appointment, every time. You will wake up late, you will forget things, and you will get angry over it. It’s okay! Take a 5-minute breather and go back at it again. You can’t make everyone happy, and that is perfectly okay too.

Learn To Laugh: If you think the rest of this is nothing more than silliness, than please pay attention to this part! There is nothing worse than an unhappy mama! However, as a mama, your going to have to learn to laugh, even at yourself. Stuff is going to happen, the kid is going to poop out of his pants as you walk through the door or he is going to throw food all over his brand new outfit. Try to find the humor in this day and keep on going.


I sure hope this helps you out. What are some of your lessons you have learned to help you get through the holidays without being super stressed? Let me know below!

The First Step In Finding Your Purpose

December 8, 2016

The First Step is always the hardest, here is yours for finding your purpose.


So many women are trapped in an endless cycle of the mindless tasks, and we are so unhappy. We do these mindless tasks and wonder why we are unhappy, we wonder why we become overwhelmed, and we wonder why we have such a short fuse. We struggle to see the purpose that God gave us and we don’t know why. We are doing what we are supposed to do right? Wrong.
