The Crooked Christmas Tree {Book Review}

The Crooked Christmas Tree Book Cover Title: The Crooked Christmas Tree Author: Damian Chandler Genre: Religion Publisher: FaithWords Release Date: October 3, 2017 Pages: 144

In this real-life Christmas fable, when a Dad decides to let his kids select the family Christmas tree, he gets an unexpected lesson about God's love. In this thoroughly contemporary holiday story, a father lets his children choose the family Christmas tree. To his surprise, the kids pick one that is crooked. As he tries one thing after another to make the tree look right, he rediscovers the power of God's love. He begins to understand Christmas in a new way, particularly when his family decorates their tree and crown it with a star, never even noticing the crookedness he spent hours in the garage struggling to hide. The tender and laugh-out-loud narrative of real-life relationships propels the reader through the most un-generic Christmas story. This upbeat and comedic treasure refreshes the Christmas message of love and faith.

I enjoyed reading this book. In fact, I read it all in one day. πŸ™‚
It isn't a long read, but just the right length. It has an amazing message, and really helped me to understand how God sees God sees all of his children. A reminder that we are valuable to God. Great book! This would make a great gift. read more

I can’t believe Christmas is already over! A new year is upon us, and going into this new year we should always keep in mind the true meaning of Christmas. It is something that we should always remember and be thankful for, not just this time of year, but year round.

Online Shopping-Saving time & money?

As much as I love going into the stores, sometimes it can be really frustrating. The crowds are getting bigger & bigger the closer to Christmas it gets. Online shopping is just necessary at times. I shop online when I can get a great price, and get free (or low) shipping.

This morning I shopped a little online and found what I was looking for on sale for 30% off. It was 30% off a price that was already the lowest I’ve found, with free shipping & no tax. Yay! :o) I get excited over things like that, haha! read more
