The BEST Christmas Contest in the World
Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I will say, rejoice! Philippians 4:4 (NKJV)
Christmas is a wondrous time. It's our time to praise the Father above for His amazing gift to this world, His one and only Son, Jesus.
We lift joyous songs to the heavens in the form of carols and even reflect His enormous offering in the exchange of gifts to those we love.
Six years ago, the Lord called me to put the pen to the page and something amazing happened in my life. I fell in love with Christian Fiction. This year, I'm offering it to you.
Along this journey as a writer, I'm surrounded by wonderful authors. From my blogs to ACFW and Prism Book Group, I'm blessed to know many talented people with a drive to show God's message in their work.
Because the Lord has blessed me, I've been given a chance to bless you! Many of these writers have donated a copy of their books for the GRAND prize of this contest. In addition, some are talented craftsmen and their art is the SECOND prize! Wow! God is good.
