Do you struggle to hold onto joy during the holiday season?
The call to sing carols and celebrate often magnifies the pain of those who suffer during this season. Christine Trimpe offers solutions to how to find Christmas joy while "the weary world rejoices," as the favorite hymn so aptly states.
In this episode of Flourish-Meant, we discuss the disappointments triggered by a cultural emphasis on circumstantial happiness. Christine Trimpe and I explore the ways to anchor yourself in the good news of great joy through intentional joy seeking instead. We reveal how to stay focused on joy when facing dark circumstances.
In this episode, we also contemplate the season leading to Christmas. Advent season, as some denominations call the four weeks leading to December 25th, inspires us to consider the birth and final, triumphant appearance of Jesus Christ.
Christine explains how to center your mindset and heart on scripture each day in what she calls "Bible and beans" time.
We also share recommendations for gifts to maximize the joy and minimize the strain of Christmas.
