"The power of a thankful heart is truly amazing."

Do you worry that everything won't be perfect this holiday season? Do you spend too much on presents and end up stressed out even thinking about paying off all those credit cards? And speaking of cards have you started writing them yet? Feeling stressed already? I know I sure am. But it was with relief that I read this calming book.

Judy Pace Christie has some good ideas that will make the holiday season more memorable. She suggests you make a list of words to describe the Christmas you want to experience. Words like "peace," "comfort," "happiness," and "love" might be on your list. Then all you have to do is figure out how you can get more of these wonderful emotions into your Christmas plans. You can also do this little exercise about Thanksgiving and New Years.

The normal tradition in our family is to make food to take to a family gathering but this year seems like it is going to be different. Family members have moved out of town and celebrations are not being held at the same place. This might be a blessing since my father is dying and would love to see me. So really my Thanksgiving holiday may turn out a bit different than usual. Driving to see family for seven hours round trip will be worth it in the end.

Now the author talks a lot about presents and how we stress ourselves out by overspending. She suggests buying smaller presents or at least only buying gifts for those who really mean something to you in your life. Some people decide not to have any presents at all or ask that no one buy them anything and they will do the same. We have done this for a few years but I will admit I feel guilty not giving something. Even a bag of home baked cookies is better than nothing. So you really have to do something that makes you comfortable and happy.

A lot of people who talked to the author seemed to have given up sending out Christmas cards. I think this is one thing that you shouldn't skip. I did for numerous years and have lived to regret it. You can literally lose track of people over the years. Sometimes people move but will still get a Christmas card that has been forwarded to their new address. They can then send you a card in return and you can update your address book. Also starting to write the cards early, like at the beginning of November, can make the task less stressful. I buy my cards from a dollar store and they are just as nice as anything I would pay ten times more for at other stores.

In the end I think this book makes the point that it is the thought that counts and that people will remember that you thought of them.

Largely dealing with the big picture of visualizing how you want your holidays to look, this book is more about making the decision of what to do and what to let go of rather than figuring out exactly how to implement that. From the joys of Thanksgiving to the focus on Jesus from Advent through the Epiphany, this is a Christian-centered book on bringing back the spirituality and letting go of the hub-ub. I am in whole-hearted agreement with her philosophy and she challenges some of the deep rutted thinking about what MUST be done. I particularly appreciated the part where she has you come up with a word (or two) that describes what you what the season to be and then challenges you as to what that would look like. Some very good stuff here to get you thinking.

Where the book fell slightly short for me is that you can't really implement many of these items without family buy-in (cutting out or cutting back gifts for example) and that buy-in can be hard to get. There is often a lot of negotiation with family over expectations of travel, time, and gifts and this part is largely glossed over as if just making your wishes known will be all that it takes -- no hard feelings will be caused by this. Trying to navigate blended families, in-laws, extended families add a lot of stress for many and, while she acknowledges that, it would be nice to have a little more ideas for how to make this happen without leaving damaged relationships in its wake.

Overall, a very refreshing look at the holidays -- especially Epiphany.

As November is drawing to a close and I am dealing with all the yardwork associated with the coming winter (leaves, cutting back perennials, etc) as well as the rush of Thanksgiving and Christmas right around the corner, this book just called to me. I had picked it up earlier but saved it for the "Holiday Season".

I really enjoyed the first Hurry Less book, but this wine has not held my attention like the last one

I liked this book for its ideas to focus on what's really important during the holidays, the celebration of Jesus. I have taken a few of the ideas under advisement and implemented others. Working well already! The save tine recipes were underwhelming. I prefer a little bit more gourmet and or less fat.

A+: Fast delivery. I would order from them again. The book was just as described!
