In this (50th!) episode, we are talking about the Christmas Crazies and how to avoid them. In addition to recognizing that you are in control of many of the pressures you feel this time of year, I share some other ideas as well:

1) Keep some of your routines.
Daily routines and habits are part of how you and your family can find comfort and stay sane during crazy busy holiday celebrations.

2) Watch your sugar.
It's just EVERYWHERE this time of year. You don't have to say no to everything, but give some serious thought to the ways in which continually over-indulging in sugar makes you miserable in the long run.

3) Know when to say no.
You do not have to attend every event and send every gift and acrd just because you were invited to. Know your personal lists and your family's limits, and do your best to respect them.

4) Make room for quiet. 
Never more than this time of year, our souls crave quiet. Find yourself some in any creative way you can.

I also answer questions from listeners about how to handle Santa Claus and whether or not to take young kids to Midnight Mass. Let me know what you think!

INTERVIEW
This week we have such a fun conversation with Lisa Henley Jones, blogger at Of Sound Mind and Spirit. Lisa shares so beautifully about faith, family, work, and what she has learned (sometimes the hard way!) over the years about what is really important.
