Its day five of our week of Untangling Christmas giveaways! (Be sure to head to my coauthor LeAnn’s site for her week’s giveaways too and be sure to scroll down to enter all of the giveaways here this week.)
I have a confession to make.
Sometimes, at the holidays, I’m a little bit of a control freak.
I want the gifts to be just so; the kids to open them in a certain order; I like to plan the menu and make sure the house is decorated Norman Rockwell perfect.
Yep, the control freak in me kicks into high gear whenever it begins to look a lot like Christmas.
My newest book LET. IT. GO. How to Stop Running the Show & Start Walking in Faith is about how we women like to controls things. And people. And the appearance of the house. And our circumstances.
In conjunction with its release, I am going to be offering a little challenge to us all. It will be a five-day study called From Chaos to Calm: The LET. IT. GO. Christmas Challenge
This challenge will come to your inbox once a day for five days beginning with the day you sign up.
So, if you sign up November 5th–the day it launches—you will get the practical, devotional-like challenges once a day for the next five days. If you don’t sign up until a week or two later, they will begin on the day you sign up. This way you can do it over a five-day spread that works best for you.
We’ll be tackling five different areas where we need to let go of control at the holidays. Or where we need to let go of unrealistic expectations.
I hope you’ll join me!
Now, for today’s Untangling Christmas giveaway. It includes:
~ A copy of the ebook Untangling Christmas: Your Go-to Guide for a Hassle-Free Holiday
~ Some Starbucks Cinnamon coffee
~ Some gift tags
~ A dark chocolate mint bar
~ A Kenny G Christmas CD
To be entered, leave us a comment with the area of Christmas you seem to struggle a little (or a lot) with control. Is it the look of the house? The expectations of extended family get-togethers? What traditions you will do? The gifts? The annual Christmas photo? (You know—you want to be the one to pick which one will be sent out so you can make sure that it is one where you look gorgeous, the kids look darling and if the hubby has his eyes shut—so what!)
