How Holiday Hygge Rhythm can Help Your Girl Move in God’s Time

Have you heard of the Scandinavian cultural practice of “hygge”? Spelled “H-Y-G-G-E”, it is more a rhythm than a season. In countries like Denmark, Iceland, and Sweden, people insulate their lives in the home with simple things like cozy blankets, a candle, spiced cider, and more books than you can imagine. The colder months are marked by a slower way of life meant for introspection, rest, and healing. How different than our culture of holiday busyness!  

Think about doing a spiritual hygge inventory with your girl. It starts with the calendar—remove all the “extra.” Bring a blanket, a new Bible study on the humility of Christ, contentment, or Sabbath rest, and a quiet corner chair near a window or your home fireplace. Help her build a new rhythm with the Lord.
