planning for peace

Planning for peace during the holidays

Christmas is a time of celebration. Sometimes it is also a time of conflict. And “hope it goes well” is not a plan, my friends. Today on the podcast, we are discussing how planning for peace in the midst of conflict can calm the overwhelming feelings we are are all getting just thinking about it all. You are often forced to celebrate the holidays with people you have a history with. You love them, but some aren’t as enjoyable to be around as others. Maybe you just hope for the best and that you get through the day. Kathi says, “Hope is not a plan!” Kathi and Roger discuss tips for planning Christmas with less stress and more enjoyment by planning for peace.
