Thankfulness is an attitude and emotional state that allows us to see the larger and more eternal perspective on our daily lives, especially when things are difficult. But such an attitude is not easy or natural for us to have. So what are the methods by which we can develop an attitude of gratitude, and how can we have a lifestyle which reflects a thankful spirit? Monday on Mornings with Eric and Brigitte we welcome pastor and counselor, Norm Wise as he outlines some practical means by which we can start turning the troubles of our lives into opportunities to give sincere thanks under pressure.
It's time to think about the holidays and how to approach our spending. When gift-giving it's good to set a few simple rules. Set some expectations and limits, get organized, and think creatively! Also, try to avoid the dangers of credit card debt. A small, thoughtful gift is worth more than an expensive gift that someone may never use. Monday on Mornings with Eric and Brigitte, financial expert, Lori Taylor will share some tips on setting up a holiday spending budget and keeping yourself out of debt in the New Year.
