The Widow's Mite--A Christmas Story Review

Yes, I do love me some Christmas stories, so when Christina Dymock offered me the chance to read and review her Christmas booklet, The Widow's Mite, I jumped all over that.

This delightful and touching Christmas tale brings us the story of Carol, a young widow with two small sons, who has just enough to provide Christmas for her boys, but no more. When she meets up with an old roommate in even more desperate circumstances than herself, she knows she has to help. Although Carol busies herself with organizing the school's sub-for-Santa project in behalf of her friend, she still feels empty and wonders how she can bring the Christmas spirit back into her life. Could there be more that she needs to give when she barely has enough for herself? Carol learns a beautiful lesson about love, service, and the ultimate gift of our Savior Jesus Christ. This little story is sure to bring the warmth of the Christmas season into your heart.

The Widow's Mite is published by Cedar Fort, and would make a wonderful addition to your Christmas story collection. (You do have one of those, right?) It would also make a great gift for neighbors, friends, family, visiting teachers, etc. The book is available in stores or on Amazon. If it's not available at you local bookstore, you can ask them to order it for you.

Thank you, Christina, for giving me the opportunity to review this heart-warming Christmas story!

Disclaimer: I received a free copy of the booklet to review. This did not affect my opinion of it.

I'll have to check it out! I love a good Christmas story. =)

Nice! And yes, I know you love your Christmas stories!

And guess what? I really don't have a collection of Christmas stories! The only one I really love to read and re-read each year is The Other Wise Man. And I'm not even *certain* that's what it's called, lol.

But this is a lovely review Angie. Perhaps I should start that collection, eh?

Thanks for the heads up. I never know what books are out there!

BTW--Tag, you're it! (Check out my blog and that comment might actually make sense.)

Hmm, my mom and I have interchangeable Christmas story collections . . . so this book might be a perfect addition to her shelf (and I'll get to read it too).
Thanks for the review!

Man! I see a Christmas story and I just have to buy it for my mom. She loves them even more than I do. Thanks for sharing this one with us--I'm going to check it out!

Meanwhile my mom is getting Stolen Christmas this week. :o)
