Hour 1: The Giving Manger

If you want to make this a special Christmas, today we're going to talk about how The Giving Manger helps families shift the focus of Christmas back to giving and create a family tradition at the same time! Co-creator and author of The Giving Manger, Allison Hottinger joins us on Tuesday to talk about how as your family works together to give gifts of service, you will find your hearts and home filled with more joy during the holiday season than ever before.

Hour 2: Choices and Changes

Even though this holiday season looks much different from anything we could have imagined, we can still make it the best Christmas ever! Although none of us chose 2020's trauma, we can make choices to transform what's next. Licensed professional counselor, Marti Wibbels joins us on Tuesday to share five choices we can make that will help us to face whatever's coming next for us in the days ahead!

Allison Hottinger and Lisa Kalberer

Allison Hottinger and Lisa Kalberer are sisters who are passionate about giving back. Christmas is one of their favorite holidays, filled with fun and festive traditions. As they began to raise their own families, they often felt like the true meaning of Christmas and the spirit of giving was getting lost in the hustle and bustle of the season. They put pen to paper, wood to the saw, and clay in our hands to create a book, manger + baby Jesus –– a complete tradition to help families focus on giving and the real meaning of Christmas.
