My New Book: The Reason For The Season

Christmas has become so commercialized that the reason for the season is often forgotten. This full-color, magazine-style book of thirty pages contains Bible verses from the Holy Bible, New International Version, a section of questions and discussion, the author’s personal experiences, and ways readers can respond to each topic.

While reading The Reason for the Season you will amaze yourself with the wonder of Mary’s courage, the faith of Joseph, and the glory of God.

The Reason for the Season

Helps people better understand why we celebrate Christmas.

Three circumstances contributed to my writing The Reason for the Season

  1. A real estate agent knocked on my door and in the course of our conversation I mentioned I had published two books and he stated he published one, a book of devotions that helped him deal with his depression after an illness.
  2. With the restrictions of COVID-19, I missed going to church, so I read the Bible daily, and being a writer I decided to write my own book of devotions. This helped keep me busy and added in my recovery after knee surgery and life with Multiple Sclerosis. I questioned: why not read and write about Christmas?
  3. Several ministers from my church and I corresponded about the project via Email. They provided expert help with any liturgical questions.

In the writing process she found much encouragement: “Writers are special. They help each other. It’s not like, ‘I’m a famous writer. I’m not going to tell anybody anything.’ It’s, ‘I’m a writer; I want you to be too.’” Check out her interview here.
