QIC encouraged the PAX, as fellow leaders, to be the light for their family on Christmas this year. Christmas 2020 will be very different for a lot of reasons, and our families will be reaching for reasons to be happy in the midst of it all. First and foremost, Jesus is the reason for the season, and we are responsible for making sure that this is the primary focus. As leaders, we of course can be subject to feelings of sadness and frustration that things aren’t the way they always have been. We also can’t just snap our fingers and change the circumstances. What we can do, is rise above our feelings and project strength and happiness for others to hold onto. Happiness and laughter will bring joy to your family members who may be struggling. Get out front and bring that cheer! No matter how small your Christmas gathering is, use it as a time to push your loved ones into 2021 with a nice Christmas memory. Momentum is so powerful!


El Chapo left a Christmas present on my car by mistake. It was addressed to Abercrobmbie, and I’m totally jealous
