The theme for January is "New Year's Huddle."
In Minnesota where I live, January can be a drag. It’s often bitterly cold, icy and nearly impossible to go anywhere without taking ten minutes to bundle up. However, there is a little secret we Minnesotans have — January compels us to stay home, nestle in and slow down. When you don’t feel obligated to go out, you stay in and spend time together.
But you don’t have to be a resident of Minnesota to do this. Even if you live in a place where January is warm, your family can make a commitment to keep this month simple by slowing down and rediscovering the joy of your faith in the company of loved ones. Spend some time together praying, working on a craft or activity offered here or simply reading side-by-side.
