Publisher's Summary

The Christmas season is a particularly difficult time for women to slow down and relish what's right in front of them. An annual marker for many, it is a holiday that can often remind us how life is not going as we'd planned. Our family relationships remain strained, our finances stretched, and our schedules stuffed with too much to do in too little time.

Following the formula of her successful Loving My Actual Life, Alexandra Kuykendall shares with listeners her own personal experiment to be completely present in her life as it is during the holiday season. Addressing the themes of Advent and Christmas, she reflects on hope, love, joy, peace, and relishing the season, with practical pullouts on common Christmas stressors, such as finances, schedules, and extended family. Kuykendall's signature candor helps women go easy on themselves, remember what truly matters, and find joy in their imperfect Christmases.

Doing The Christmas Season Differently

This refreshing look at the stresses of Christmas, gives us new eyes to see how "our actual life" integrates with holiday expectations...all the while focusing on the central theme of the "babe in the manger is Emmanuel -God with us " Do the holiday different this year with intentionality and purpose....your family will thank you ! You will thank you!
