The Christmas Candle

Nothing compares to a cozy Christmas story at this time of year—especially when it takes place in a quaint village in Victorian England.

The Christmas Candle by best-selling author Max Lucado takes place in one of my favority parts of England -- the Cotswolds. In the heart of the Cotswolds, in Gladstone, life consists of hard work, tradition and cobblestone streets. But for Edward Haddington, a humble candle maker, life takes on a new meaning when he receives a mysterious visit from an angel—a visit that will not only change his life but the lives of everyone in the community. And it will renew the jading faith of the new preacher.

Love & Respect in the Family

Just when you think there’s nothing more to read about parenting and family, a new book comes along to prove you wrong. Love & Respect in the Family by Dr. Emerson Eggerichs (Thomas Nelson, Nov '13) is one such book.  

In Love & Respect in the Family, best-selling author and family relationship expert, Dr. Eggerichs approaches family dynamics from a slightly different angle than most. He suggests focuses on respect and making it a major component in family relationship. Respect makes a person (especially a child) feel valued. Feeling valued then translates into feeling loved. 

Coming out in time for Christmas shopping -- and makes a great gift. Read my full review in The San Diego Christian Perspectives Examiner.  And in Assist News Service.
