Discussions about which family house to be at, on what day and what time....

…the hokey pokey dance of spending equal amounts of time with all sides of your family

…The "must gift" mentality that stares you in the face every December

…Magic acts of coming up with extra money for gifts that rarely please

…And the endless wondering on how to make the season focused on Christ and not commercial consumerism

You’ve probably heard this dozens of times : Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year.

And you believe it (why else would you have Hallmark movies DVR’d and a plan to bake at least 6 different thumbprint cookie recipes!)

Everybody says it, but secretly you wonder: Is this just something we are saying to ourselves?

Each time you get into cozy chit-chats about Christmas, inevitably the words “busy” and “crazy” get tossed into the conversation like cranberries craisins into a broccoli salad.

Everyone says these things as a point of connection, but lately it’s been bugging you that the holy holiday of Christ’s birth is being identified with words that are the exact opposite of PEACE.

Especially when you find yourself feeling like you’ve spent all year trying to get a sense of forward motion in life and all you have to show for it is a half empty journal of Power Sheets with a lot of color-coded ideas that never happened (reading the Bible in a year included).

You wanted something different this year, but you’re exhausted and you are not a Pinterest mom (That adorable origami advent calendar made from quilted fabric will not be made with your hands any time soon).

You know it can be different.

And it can be…

But BEFORE it can be different you need to sit down by the fire

and pour a cup of hot chocolate with whipped cream and a bit of toffee sprinkles

You’re gonna need it…

because it will help you swallow these Christmas season truths that no one is willing to say.

What if you decided to DEFINE and DETERMINE what being HOME for CHRISTMAS looks like for your family?

If you made it this far, then you ALREADY know that having a memorable Christmas that is marked by REST and not STRESS
requires a few essential ingredients:

simple strategies to make connection happen with each other rather than a device!

clear boundaries and a road map that steers YOU clear of Burn Out

an easy to follow solution for making Peace on Earth happen at home (no more sibling squabbles)

It doesn’t have to.

MYTH #3.jpg

Hi there! I'm Therese McDonald from Attaching Hearts to Home. Every year I meet with hundreds of parents who have faced tremendous challenges, heart ache and suffering in their parenting and marriage journey.

From tech and screen addiction to festering old wounds, I've discovered that families don't need another gadget, they need more time together. 

But is that even possible any more?

>>>What if I told you that you could have a connected Christmas - not an internet connection, but a heart-to-heart connection?

>>>What if I told you that it was possible to celebrate a joyous Christmas even if you are feeling like the burned out stub of a candle?

>>>What if I told you that there was a simple and practical way to give yourself the kind of Christmas that reflected the birth of Christ and what you truly wanted Christmas to look like for your family? is possible. 

Let me show you how!
