Christmas Joy, Love & Wonder: Tiny Little Stories
Author: Annette Petrick
Who has time for Christmas joy, love and wonder? It is that time of the year when stress runs high and there are not enough hours in the day for that long to-do list. Take a break and enjoy some Christmas spirit with Annette Petrick.
This book is filled with more than fifty short stories that cover various topics such as the custom of sending cards, Christmas past, shopping tips and to bake or not to bake those delicious chocolate chip cookies. Petrick also tackles the current dilemma of “Merry Christmas” versus “Happy Holidays” and includes a grandparent version of “The Night Before Christmas” and a bonus section of thoughts for the new year.
Petrick personally chose each one to enrich your holiday and encourage love and joy in all who read the selections.
The stories are culled from the over six hundred episodes of the author’s radio show Consider This with Annette Petrick. Petrick personally chose each one to enrich your holiday and encourage love and joy in all who read the selections.
You will love the larger print (no readers needed) and it is small enough to stuff in your purse for when you are stuck in the checkout line or traffic. Or keep it in the kitchen and read a story or two as you enjoy your morning coffee and start the day. Buy an extra copy or two as a gift for a friend or hostess.
