Do you feel disillusioned with the materialism of holidays? Inundated with Santa, reindeer, wish lists, football, turkey, and Easter baskets only to find yourself too wrapped up in the chaos to enjoy the real meaning of the holidays?
A few years ago I found myself struggling with these questions, too. I wasn't that I had anything against these things, but that we just seemed to be missing the point of it all. After much prayer and intentional planning, I found that keeping our focus on Christ brought a spirit of true joy and peace to our home during the holiday season.
This study was written to help families like yours do the same thing. Trade in the hustle and materialism for joy and peace this year!

Thanksgiving may be a national holiday, but it’s also a posture of praise. 1 Thessalonians 5:18 tells us to give thanks in all circumstances. This study challenges students and their families to do just that. You’ll journey through 3 beloved hymns: Count Your Blessings, Great is Thy Faithfulness, and The Doxology. Through the pages of scripture and the hymns of praise, your hearts will be reminded of what thanksgiving really looks like in the Christian life.
The study is written for older elementary students to do on their own, if you wish. Or you could work through it as a family. Copywork of the hymn lyrics is provided for older children as well as younger children. If you work 20-30 minutes a day, the flexible schedule will span about 3 weeks. You will learn the story behind the hymn, the biography of the hymn writer, dig deeper into God’s word, and even start a list of blessings to be thankful for.
