I’m not a killjoy. If you love Santa, believe in Santa, and want to perpetuate the myth that a jolly fat man dressed in red comes down the chimney on Christmas Eve to leave presents (at every house in the world, all at the same time) I am not here to take all that away from you. I promise.

We just finished your Parenting DVD series in our church. I am so grateful for this teaching! The timing was perfect for my husband and me.
