But really, I love the traditions and quality time spent with loved ones. Every year I have two thanksgivings. Morning Thanksgiving with my family and real Thanksgiving with my best friend's family.
Lexi and I have been friends since we were 13 and I've been celebrating Thanksgiving at their house since I was 15. They are more like family.

I get to share about what God is doing in my life and share the gospel. I get to talk about why I do full time ministry (most people think I'm totally nuts! lol) and get to show the love of Christ through my actions.
Not many people in my family (or my pseudo-family...) are Christians but I get to display Jesus to them. If you're in my shoes, you might benefit from these tools.

This time of year is a great time to bring up spiritual conversations and transition into sharing the gospel. Many people are already focused on thankfulness (a major biblical theme) and Christmas (the birth of our Savior!) and it can be a natural start to a conversation about Jesus. If you need more evangelism ideas, check out my friend Nate's website Eternity Impact and you'll find 137 easy and creative ways to share the gospel!
What does your family do for Thanksgiving? Do you have opportunities to share Jesus during your holidays? Or do you have any neat ideas or stories for sharing Jesus at Thanksgiving?
