Book Preview ~ A Baxter Family Christmas

A Baxter Family Christmas, by Karen Kingsbury

Whether you’re meeting the Baxter family for the first time, or finding them all over again…A Baxter Family Christmas will leave fingerprints on your heart forever.

Two years have passed since the terrible car accident that took the life of John Baxter’s daughter, Erin, her husband and three of their four daughters. Prompted by grief, and missing his daughter, John has invited a stranger for Christmas Eve dinner—Kendra Bryant, the transplant recipient who now has Erin’s heart.

In light of their father’s idea, Ashley and her brother Luke don’t think it’s right. They want to protect their ten-year-old niece, Amy—the only surviving member of the accident. But John is determined and believes meeting this woman is something his deceased daughter would want.

At the same time, Maddie West, the eighteen-year-old daughter of Brooke Baxter West, is praying for meaning this Christmas. Could she find it in a newfound friendship with a boy she never expected to see again? Maddie believes in miracles, especially at Christmastime, but this is a stretch even she can’t imagine. 

Meanwhile, Kendra Bryant has been struggling these past few years to find purpose in the tragedy that gave her a second chance. She believes the invitation to see the Baxters and witness their unwavering faith in God can instill peace and happiness back into her life.

Heartwarming and touching, filled with love and redemption, A Baxter Family Christmas brings together two families in the aftermath of loss and in the midst of an unfolding love story, all with the help of one very special child. Buy the book HERE.

Christmas Traditions - Favorite Movies

Now that Thanksgiving is over, it's time to get ready for Christmas.
This Advent Season I'm going to share with you some of our favorite family traditions.

Each year when we drag out our Christmas decorations, we eagerly go through our movie collection to find our favorite Christmas shows. Some of them are children's programs from long ago -- Frosty the Snowman, A Year without a Santa Claus, or Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer. 

I've been watching and listening to these programs ever since I was a little girl, but I never tire of them. 

Included in our selections are our favorite Classic Christmas movies: Holiday Inn, Christmas in Connecticut, Meet Me in St. Louis, A Miracle on 34th Street, and It's a Wonderful Life. And what about National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation--too funny! 

There are so many more, it's hard to list them all. And I haven't even touched on my favorite Hallmark Christmas movies. LOL. What about you? Do you have a favorite Christmas movie you watch each year?

Book Preview ~ The Artisan's Wife

The Artisan's Wife, by Judith Miller
Ainslee McKay's world is shaken when she discovers her twin sister has not only eloped with a man she barely knows but now Ainslee must fulfill their obligation at a tile works in Weston, West Virginia. Ainslee must learn the ropes and, if she can keep the tile works profitable, her brother will help her sell the business.

When Levi Judson arrives and shows Ainslee his designs for new tiles, she's impressed by his skill and passion for the business. But he's hiding his true reason for coming to Weston. And Ainslee knows he'd be crushed to learn his plans for a long career at McKay Tile Works are in vain since she intends to sell. Can the growing feelings between them survive if the truth comes to light--or is a future together as untenable as the future of the tile works itself? Buy the book HERE.
