'Tis the Season for a Christmas Book Giveaway: Two Copies of "The Christmas Town" by Donna VanLiere

 The Christmas Town Became a Hallmark Movie

Fans of Candace Cameron Bure will remember her portrayal of Lauren Gabriel in Hallmark's 2019 movie, Christmas Town, which is based on this book by Donna VanLiere.  However, the Hallmark version has almost nothing in common with the novel.  The book and the movie share only three things:  character names, setting, and the fact Lauren was once a foster child.    

Since the storylines veer in different directions, the book will take you on a far deeper and better journey.  

The Christmas Town Book Giveaway

Lauren is a 21-year-old cashier who grew up in foster homes, always hoping the relationship with her drug addict mother might one day be restored.  She longs for family.  One day, she witnesses a car accident that thrusts her into the small town of Grandon.  She loves the town and all the people in it and finds the faith, hope, love, and family her heart has always longed for.

The Christmas Town is a very uplifting story brimming with faith, generosity, servanthood, and kindness.  It is an engaging read for the Christmas season.

Review: "The Book of Signs" by Dr. David Jeremiah

Is the End of the World Near?  When you watch the news and read the headlines, it seems our world is hurtling towards disaster.  Christ followers are taught to be ready for His Second Coming, although no one knows the day or the hour He will return. The Bible is filled with prophetic passages to give us clues about what to expect in the end times leading up to the apocalypse; however, unless you're a Biblical scholar, many of these scriptures may seem cryptic.   In The Book of Signs , Dr. David Jeremiah shares deep insight into complicated Biblical prophecy to make it digestable and easy to understand.  Your eyes will be opened, and the meaning behind familiar scriptures will be revealed  like never before.   How The Book of Signs is Structured The Book of Signs is a comprehensive manual that breaks down end time prophecies into manageable chunks over the course of 31 chapters: PART 1:  International Signs Chapter 1:  Israel Chapter 2:  Europe Chapter 3:  Russia Chapter 4:  Babylo

Don't Let Your Kids Read Harry Potter

Have your kids been imploring you for permission to read the Harry Potter series?  It seems like everyone is hooked on these books, making your kids feel awkwardly quarantined from their peers over the divide on principles.  After all, Scholastic book orders provided by the indoctrination centers of public schools are brimming with Harry Potter selections, serving up an alarming dose of witchcraft for the youngest readers to the oldest.  Isn't everything sanctioned by the schools supposed to be in your child's best interests?  Hardly.  Not only is the book addiction rampant, but the frenzy is intensified by movies, museum exhibits, and video games.  A full line of merchandise supports the franchise, offering consumers Harry Potter board games, magic wands, apparel, cups, calendars, umbrellas, necklaces, and other fan fare products.  If Harry Potter is so evil and insidious, surely the bandwagon would be fairly empty, right?  We find the answer in I Corinthians 2:14,
