The Christmas Moment

Carol Lynn Pearson

The Christmas Moment by Carol Lynn Pearson“Can’t you think of anything cheerful?  We really need to put something cheerful in the Christmas letter, don’t you think?”

“I didn’t get run over by a truck.”  James turned the page of the newspaper and did not look up. 

Christmas is nearly upon the Young household, but the amount of Christmas spirit there could have been rolled up and put inside an ornament on the tree.  Grandpa, who had been their Spirit of Christmas, died last year, and with his passing all the holiday lights went out.

But then a letter—a letter Grandpa had sent from the Holy Land, lost in the mail for a year—is miraculously delivered, bringing the family “a newly discovered text by Jesus.”  This message, a gift received in one magical Christmas moment, changes their lives.

The Christmas Moment, a modern retelling of O. Henry’s classic The Gift of the Magi, brings to life again the wonder of true giving.


“I read this book and loved every page.  I read it to my husband, and a few days later he came home from work and said, ‘I’d like 8 copies of that Christmas Moment book for my friends at work.’  Apparently even men can enjoy a good Carol Lynn Pearson book!”
