Diane Townsley was one of the first female Disc Jockeys in the country. TV Picture Life Magazine called Diane “the sweetest sound around”. In 2011, after being asked to go back on the air, her “Date with Diane” show was syndicated and is heard now around the world. Her love for the Lord, children, storytelling and Christmas, has lead her into the arena of writing children stories. ‘Twas the Night before ‘Christ’-mas is her first in the “Let me tell you a story” series. Diane has also written a Christmas Children’s musical/drama that complements her book.
“Diane has given a lovely twist in this Christmas poem by telling the true story of the birth of our savior and King, Jesus Christ. I rejoice that the true message of our Lord can be proclaimed by replacing the fairy tale of a mythical Santa Claus”
Pastor Brian O’Connell
Crystal River First Assembly of God
“Love it! Reminds us all what Christmas is about! A simple poem with a priceless meaning!”
Pastor Tom Thomas
First Christian Church of Inverness
The birth of Jesus was a glorious event that we thank God for every year on Christmas. Now in Author, Diane Townsley’s retelling of Christ’s birth, see all who came to celebrate our Savior. Have fun acting out Jesus’s birth with finger puppet activity pages included at the end of the book. This twist on two Christmas classics provides a new and wonderful way to worship our Lord.
I bring you good news of great joy which will be for all people on earth; for today in the city of David there has been born for you a savior, who is Christ the Lord. (Luke 2:10-11)
