If you’re like me, you always intend to keep the holidays Christ-centered, but in reality it isn’t easy. In the busyness of the holidays, we often finish the Christmas season feeling defeated and depleted. Today’s guest, Ruth Chou Simons knows the hectic nature of the holidays; raising 6 sons and running a retail business that is thriving over the holidays, the Simons family has to be intentional to keep Christ at the center.
Pour a cup of coffee (or some holiday cider!) and join Ruth and I as we talk about family traditions, (or lack of!) our shared love for raising boys, and how we can all set our hearts on Jesus during the holidays, and beyond!
