What stresses you most about the upcoming holidays? Do find yourself feeling discouraged, dreading family gatherings that fraught with stress, when it seems everyone is having picture perfect holidays? You’re not alone. Today, we're tackling different ways of dealing with family tensions and fractured relationships.

Join Bonnie in a powerful, heartfelt conversation about how to overcome family holiday stress with author Becky Keife – a child of divorce and a woman who struggles with anxiety as they explore the question we all ask: Why does it have to be this way?

They discuss:

- How our holiday stories, no matter how fraught or difficult they are, are not going to define us as God’s beloved daughters.

- How we can use our broken stories to shine God’s light in our lives – and draw closer to God and each other through the very struggles we would rather run from. And that’s the miracle of grace.

Today's Scripture: And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. Romans 8:28
