I love Christmas! The sights, sounds, and scents invite us to savor life. But Christmas summons unwanted emotions as well as good ones. In light of this, some of my author friends have joined together to offer you gifts that touch this variety of needs. I trust you’ll find something just for you. Hopefully, you’ll open many gifts below that will delight and hearten you.

Gifts to Brighten Your Christmas

From Karen Whiting

I love this season of the year celebrating the birth of Christ, singing carols, and putting out my collection of nativity sets. Of my 26 books, one is especially for this season: Christmas is Coming! But Waiting is Hard.

I want to give you two free gifts to make the season special.

  1. Keep Christ in Christmas with simple tips.
  2. Make shopping with children fun by using this Mall Sighting game to find signs of Christ’s birth as you shop. Play the game while shopping  online by observing what’s in the background of various sites.

Find a delicious and versatile biscuit recipe, sample advent devotions for families, and other specials if you sign up for my newsletter as well as learn to understand the basic emotional needs of people to strengthen your relationships!

Merry Christmas!

From Debbie Wilson

From personal experience and my years working as a Christian counselor, I know holidays can be tough. The first Christmas was also challenging as I discovered when writing Little Women, Big God. Many people are approaching the 2020 holiday season empty and depleted. Financially. Emotionally. Isolated from loved ones.

Restore the Christmas spirit with How to Celebrate Christmas When You’re Empty and find other resources to refresh your faith.

May joy and peace fill you this Christmas!

From Linda Gilden

From Yvonne Ortega

You’ve probably suffered many losses during the pandemic. Please know that you’re not alone. May you find comfort here. If you prefer to watch videos, click here or here.

I’ve experienced countless personal losses. As a professional counselor, I worked with hundreds of clients who struggled with grief, divorce, forgiveness, or a life-threatening illness. May you find peace, promise, and purpose in my series, Moving from Broken to Beautiful® here.

Jesus came to earth so you can live an abundant life. Pandemic or not, his promises do not change.

From Melissa Henderson

Hello, Melissa Henderson here. I want to share a video with you. Enjoy a reading of my children’s book, Licky the Lizard.

In this special story, we learn we don’t have to be afraid of lizards because God created the people and God created the lizards, too.
