Here’s what women are saying about this beautiful book:

I had, over the years, come to hate Christmas..really really hate Christmas with all of it’s “musts” and “shoulds.” Your book helped to “re-mind” me of what Christmas is supposed to be – a celebration of love. It helped me to see that I can choose to reinterpret Christmas; to take my attention and focus from those aspects that drive me crazy and, instead, place them on the multitude of blessings God sends my way. Thank you for that timely lesson. — Jocelyne

Usually these gift books for women are tripe…too girly, too flowery, too pie-in-the-sky spiritual, or just downright silly.  But your stuff has some substance and a point.  You deliver your message in an educated, well-written style that drives each day’s home with tact and gentility.  You don’t let the reader get away with much, tapping us on the shoulder about things like becoming consumed with our plans for Christmas, becoming a martyr, having a short fuse, etc.  The book is easy to handle, easy to understand and easy to write in.  The look is simple but elegant; the length is just right. — Linda
