About this Episode

Listen in as Zan and Nancy Manos share ideas for alleviating pressure and reducing stress during the holidays. The goal is for you to be free to enjoy your kids, family, and friends, and to celebrate the true meaning of Christmas– without killing yourself in the process. From reading books aloud to serving others to enjoying experiences together, the holidays provide unique opportunities for your family to bond and create special memories. Even when the holidays bring unexpected twists and turns, remember that with God’s grace, you can embrace this holiday season and find joy where you are.

Podcast Sponsor

At BJU Press Homeschool, we’re committed to providing children an education from a biblical worldview that is academically sound and challenges them to advance, think critically, and live like Christ. This type of education is not often possible in public schools because of the number of children taught in a classroom, a difference in worldview, and peer and societal pressure to conform. Homeschooling allows parents to instruct and disciple their children without daily fighting messages from an opposing worldview taught in the classroom. And with tuition costs and fees for private schooling or tutoring, homeschooling may be the only option for parents who are concerned for their children’s physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being.
