Here we are again—the holiday season. Thanksgiving is here, Christmas is coming, and we’re supposed to be full of joy and gratitude. Or at least act like we are!
But I’m not feeling it. Have you ever struggled with this? I have an awesome family and a great life, and I’m grateful—but I always have a hard time getting into the “Christmas spirit.”
And even when I do, I find it easy to get overwhelmed by the commercial aspects of the season and the overwhelming social requirements. (Christmas parties! Christmas shopping!) I need reminders to focus on the simple ideas of family and gratitude and Jesus as the “reason for the season.”
So this year I’m doing something about it! And I’m inviting you along for the ride.
*30 Ways to Cultivate Gratitude During the Holidays*
My team and I have created a free giveaway. It’s a downloadable PDF of 30 scripture-rooted actions we can do between Thanksgiving and Christmas to help us improve our gratitude this season.
Some will be reminders; some may even be brand-new ideas. My hope is that we’ll take some action in the next month to become more grateful.

Here’s to a better Christmas Season, unlike any we have had in the past, full of real gratitude!
But he answered, “It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.’” (Matthew 4:4)
