How to bring enlightenment to your holiday gatherings without making waves

The holidays often mean dinners and gatherings with family, which is sometimes difficult for those of us who know and care a great deal about subjects that other family members would prefer to avoid. Kimberly and Foster Gamble have created a highly recommended video and blog on how to share difficult information without losing friendships, killing the mood or disturbing the peace this holiday season.

The THRIVE blogs below are not copyrighted by the Gambles, and are intended for sharing.Please view the links below for the original article and video blog and share freely.

The key points to remember as you carry on discussions with family and friends are: focus on shared values, discuss actions each person would take based on those values in ideal circumstances, and focus on principles, such as non-aggression. And don't forget to listen!

May your holiday season be blessed and filled with peace, joy, love, abundance, good health, and belonging.
