Keeping Christ in Christmas – Part 1

Here is a fun family activity that will help you and your family keep Christ in Christmas and hold on to the true meaning of the celebration of Christmas. #WomenLivingWell #KeepingChristinCHRISTmas #Christmas #randomactsofkindness

“It is more blessed to give than to receive.” Acts 20:35

Have you ever imagined what it would be like if we took the Christ child out of Christ-mas?

Since I grew up in a Christian home – celebrating Jesus as “the reason for the season” is all I know. But for some of you – you came to Christ later in life and you know what it’s like to do Christmas minus Christ.

In today’s video, I talk about “Random Acts of Kindness” and spreading the love of Jesus at Christmas.

But let me caution you. Do not let these ideas put pressure on you.  I am giving many ideas just to get our minds thinking of the many ways we can touch others with the love of Christ during this season. Pray over what is best for your family and your calendar.

Christmas is a season to spread the love of Christ but it’s also a time when we make sure those inside our four walls also feel loved and tended to.

{This video was originally created to correlate with week 2 in the FREE Advent eStudy – so you will hear references to the Advent Study Guide.  For the “Random Acts of Kindness” ideas, check out the list in our ebook.  Another great resource I mentioned in the video is Courtney from you can find her list of “100 Ways to Light Up Your Community with Kindness.”  <- here.}

God is love.

They will know we are Christians by our love.

Let’s live out our faith radically so all will see that we walk with the King!

Don’t be afraid to say the name of “Jesus” to those who do not know him.

There is great power in His name and He is so worthy.

Walk with the King!

How do you keep Christ in your Christmas?

What practical ways do you spread the love of Christ at Christmas?

Do you have a favorite random act of kindness you can suggest – we’d love to hear them!


  1. Courtney, you are precious to me. I am grateful for you. My parents live outside of Akron (where I grew up), whenever I come home to visit them, will you let me come on over to give you a hug, please?!? Random, and a little nutty, yes! xo Dawn

  2. These are such great ideas. It’s so easy to get caught up in acquiring presents and gifts that we forget that this is a season to give. I appreciate this reminder.

  3. I recently saw the idea of a “blessing bag” that you keep in your car and/or purse in case you see someone homeless. You stuff a zipped up baggie with toiletries (who doesn’t have some trial sizes or hotel soaps at home already?), snacks, a note of encouragement, maybe a little cash, etc.

  4. Courtney,

    This is what we do as well during Christmas. It started 3 years ago when we were trying to make it through our first Christmas after my husband died and my kids and I started what we call Days of Joy. We needed to help turn our grief inside out. We’ll do it again this year and I love to see what others are doing to get some other ideas. Off to read Courtney’s Little Light Of Mine blog as well. Here’s some of what we’ve done.

  5. Courtney,

    I just love the things you & your family do at Christmas & I will certainly go check out the link to the other site with all the other ideas. You have such a wonderful personality & you touch my life in so many ways that I want to take this time to say Thank You so much for all you do in God’s Precious Holy name. From my home to yours have a Very Merry Christmas.
