Holiday Blogging Break

Holiday Blogging Break

As of last month, I’ve been blogging continuously for three years. It’s hard to believe!

During that time, the longest I’ve ever gone between blog posts has been two weeks. I’ve decided for the first time ever to take a month-long break this month. I need the time to  focus on my family during the holidays and to pick up the pace on writing my book  (have I mentioned writing a book takes a LOT of time?!).

I look forward to posting regularly again starting in early January. In the meantime, I wish you and your family a WONDERFUL Christmas, filled with all the joy of remembering Jesus’ birth!

I’ll leave you with two links to timely posts I wrote previously that might be helpful to you as conversation starters with your kids this month:

3 Simple Ways the Birth of Jesus Changed the World

Is Believing in God Childish? (This post explains why believing in God is NOT like believing in Santa – a great conversation to have this time of year!)

See you in 2015!

      Merry Christmas to you and your family as well!

    I had a question for you, when you get back. I’ve wondered the last couple of years about whether we are doing the youth of our society a dis-service by telling them stories about Santa Claus. I’ve wondered if when kids grow older and know more, if they say that he was part of a fictional tradition, maybe Jesus is, as well. I would really appreciate your take on this, as well as any suggestions. Thanks!

      As a grandmother, I have had a spiritual tug-of-war on this topic every Christmas and Easter over the last few years. I checked to see what your thoughts were about this topic. I decided to do a search on your blog site in case it had been discussed at an earlier date, which it had. Your post on 12/11/12 was particularly insightful on so many different levels. Your comments on this issue, as well as, the opinions of the parents on either side of the topic were both well thought out and sensitive to not being judgmental of other Christians who might celebrate differently.
