Ruin (or Save) Your Holiday Season

18:26 – 

Here they come: Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s Eve — holidays that are fun but can also be complicated and hard. This week, Jake and Lisa tell suspiciously similar Thanksgiving injury stories, Matt gets honest about awkward family issues at Christmas, and Kathryn talks about how a golf cart helped her love and honor her family. The holidays don’t have to own you. We’ll share strategies for making them meaningful amid busyness and unmet expectations.

Former lesbian Rosaria Butterfield was drawn to the love of Jesus through one couple’s unconditional love and hospitality.

Instead, it’s huge bowls of average-tasting soup, asking guests to fold laundry, and befriending neighbors who turn out to be meth addicts. Join Lisa and Rosaria for a deep dive into how you can love others boldly like Jesus.
