In our last series, we journeyed through Advent looking at the parallels between the iconic movie, It’s a Wonderful Life, and Jesus’ birth story. We looked at what it means to have a “wonderful life” rooted in the hope and salvation of Christ. Beginning this new year, we want to look more practically at how we can live a more wonderful life full of signi cance. Considering the amount of distraction and pressure that exists in society today, living a ful lling life may seem like an unachievable dream, but over the next six weeks, we will look at a number of habits that we may develop to make this impossible dream a reality. ese habits, rooted in Scripture and offered in Rachel May Stafford’s book, “Hands Free Life”, will hopefully inspire us to adopt mindful daily practices and new thought-processes that will help us:
- Make meaningful, lasting human connections despite the busyness of everyday life.
- Live in the now despite that inner nudge pushing us out of the moment toward perfection and productivity.
- Protect our most sacred relationships, as well as our values, beliefs, health, and happiness, despite the dangers of technology and social media.
- Pursue our passions without sacri cing our job or our daily responsibilities.
- Evaluate our daily choices to insure we are investing in a life that matters to us.
