Holiday Traditions: Renewing our Minds!

Curtis Family Portrait

Christmas and other holiday traditions are dear to many of us, but as we grow in the Lord, we want our traditions to more accurately reflect our growing faith and maturity in Christ.

Traditions are set patterns that constitute a way of life, past down from generation to generation. Some traditions are inherently evil, such as getting drunk on New Year's Eve and some traditions are inherently good, such as going to church every Sunday as a family. But many traditions are neutral.

Celebrating God's Goodness

Luau Gang 

Traditions can be a wonderful tool for your family to celebrate God's goodness; to instill values; to establish a unique identity for your family; to provide security; and to build memories.

"The joy of the Lord is my strength." (Nehemiah 8:10) is a verse we often quote; but did you know that the context of that verse is celebrating the Lord's goodness with feasting?

Holiday Traditions Instill Values

Children at Easter 

We have the great privilege as parents to train our children to walk with God and to walk in all His ways.

Traditions are the perfect time to instill values in a positive, fun way!!! What fun to learn to honor parents by serving them breakfast in bed or giving them beautifully wrapped presents on Mother's Day or Father's Day. How nice to learn the importance of thankfulness by sharing praise reports around the table before indulging in a delicious meal. What a blast to have patriotism taught by acting out skits about our country's heritage while wearing red, white, and blue.

Each holiday can have a specific thing that we celebrate and specific values and Biblical principles that we strive to instill.

Traditions Establish Your Family's Identity;
Provide Security; & Build Memories!

Curtis Family Portrait 

Marriage ushers in a new family unit with or without the blessing of children. You not only become a couple, but a household. You are separate from your childhood families and are now establishing your own identity, habits and traditions.

By wisdom a house is built, and through understanding it is established; through knowledge its rooms are filled with rare and beautiful treasures."
(Proverbs 24:3, 4)

You are building and establishing your own unique family and you are filling their lives with rare and beautiful treasures. This is an ongoing process throughout your career as a wife and mother.

Routine, habits and traditions all provide security and a sense of "this is how we do it at my house."
