Episode Info:

We all see the ads and the Hallmark movies this time of year. We see happy, joyful people shopping for their loved ones and enjoying bountiful Christmas dinners. In reality, do we display such joy and happiness in the marketplace while shopping for our loved ones? Why not?


In This Episode, We Look At:

Three keys to a joyful Christmas shopping season.

First: Determine to keep your family's focus on the meaning of Christmas. If the primary focus is the buying and giving of gifts, you're doing it wrong.

Second: Determine a budget for Christmas related spending (including food). We cover some tips here in the episode.

Third: Be intentional to spread joy and the love of Christ to others.

Consider how other people feel as they work long hours at the stores this season, trying to tolerate impatient, rude, and belligerent customers. What difference can you make by offering a genuine smile and a "Thank you for working."
