Hi There, are you interested in books that use animals in a fun way to share Biblical truths with some fun facts about that animal? Well then, this series call Grandma's Story Cupboard is for you.
Our first set of stories are holiday ones. For Thanksgiving - "No Thanksgiving for Me" is about Tommy the turkey, who thinks he is the smartest turkey in the flock. But he quickly finds out that maybe he isn't so smart after all. As Thanksgiving approaches quickly, he learns how selfish he is. But will Tommy get his act together before Thanksgiving?
Our Christmas Story is about a dream Grandma had that lasted three nights in a row. Grandma said, "It was like being in a movie. It was so real, and all of us were in it." Grandma was praying for an idea that she could do to help with the bills. This is what God showed her and that she needed to make it into a book.
It takes place in Maine where the Hollister Family has inherited a large farm. This beautiful farm had a home that was large enough for all of us to stay in one place for Christmas. Great Grandma's dream was to have everyone together for Christmas one last time. They met the caretaker Ernest who looks like a skinny Santa. Ernest shares how this farm is the main hub for this little farming community.
Just as everyone arrived as a blizzard struck. Then, what was supposed to be a quiet family Christmas ended up being one of miracles of the Christmas season. We all agreed that we had entertained an angel unaware. Hebrew 13:2 "Do not forget to show hospitably to strangers, for by so doing some people have shown hospitality to angels without knowing it.
We learned to share what we had with strangers who showed us true kindness of neighbors. Hope these two holiday stories brighten your holidays. Please take time and enjoy your family at this wonderful time of the year.
