Christmas, Holidays (Other)

Bloggy Holidays!


Happy holidays! The three big ones – Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s – are right around the corner, and it’s time to celebrate- even here on the blog! So just to give you a heads up, here’s what that’s going to look like as I trade my regular blog schedule for a holiday schedule…

🦃 Starting tomorrow through Thanksgiving, I’ll mainly be featuring articles to help you get into an attitude of gratitude. God has been so gracious to us. How can we limit the giving of thanks to Him to one day?

🙏 For those participating in our current Bible study, Sweet Hour of Prayer: Learning to Pray from the People of Scripture, our two final lessons of the study will be on November 20 and 27. We will not have a weekly Bible study between Thanksgiving and New Year’s. Our new study will start sometime in January and will most likely be an expository study of a New Testament book.

🕯 Looking for Advent devotionals and resources? On Monday, November 25, I’ll have a bunch of awesome ones for you, many of which are free!

🛍 If you’re a Black Friday shopper, stop by the blog on Thanksgiving evening (28th) before you hit the stores. Last year’s article, Holy Holidays: 38 Christian-Owned Businesses to Support while You Christmas Shop, was so popular that I’m updating it and adding even more shopping options for this year! Why fight the lines and the traffic when you can curl up by the fire, shop online, and support your brothers and sisters in Christ?

🎄 December 2-25, I’ll be featuring Christmas-themed articles – some old, some new, and, hopefully, some from you!

Got a Christmas-related question for The Mailbag? Comment below, or drop me a message on social media or via e-mail.

Were you saved at Christmas time or at a Christmas event? Did God answer a prayer, do something amazing in your life, or teach you something unforgettable during the Christmas season? How about writing it up for Testimony Tuesday? Drop me an e-mail and let’s chat about it.

Want to write a Christmas-related guest post? It would need to center on the Scriptures dealing with Jesus’ birth or discuss a “Christian living” type topic that has something to do with Christmas. (No anti-Christmas articles, please.) Drop me an e-mail and let’s chat about it.

(December is fast approaching, so keep in mind you’ll need to be able to write quickly.)

🎉 If Bible reading plans are your thing, ring in the New Year with my annual round up list! It’ll publish on December 26 to give you plenty of time to consider your options and choose the plan that’s best for you so you can jump right in on January 1.

🎉 Between Christmas and New Year’s I’ll have some “year in review” and New Year’s themed articles for you. Then, depending on any holiday travel plans I might make, we should be back to a regular blog schedule the first or second full week of January.

Happy holidays – all of them!
