"Without Jesus's birth, there would be no Santa or Christmas. The world needs hope. What better way than through a children's book!”
Mathews, VA (PRWEB) October 02, 2014
Just about everyone is familiar with the classic stories surrounding Christmas Eve, when Santa Claus journeys around the world delivering gifts to children everywhere. What an amazing event—but where did it all originate? In the new book, ‘Twas the night before the REAL Christmas, ($9.99, paperback, 9781498407793; $20.99, hardcover, 9781498407809; $4.99, e-book, 9781498407816) author Glenda Owens brings Christ to the forefront of Christmas. She tells the true Christmas story as Ty Schafrath brings her written words to life with brilliant, color illustrations.
“This story is the true event that ‘birthed’ Christmas, based on the Bible,” states the author. “This is why we give gifts, and why families gather together. Without Jesus's birth, there would be no Santa or Christmas. The world needs hope. What better way than through a children's book!”
Glenda Owens resides in Mathews, VA, and currently serves as administrative secretary to Ebenezer Baptist Church. She has been married to her high school sweetheart Stanford for forty-two years. God has blessed them with a wonderful daughter Christa, son-in-law Robert, and two grandchildren, Charis who calls her “Mimi,” and Caleb who lives with Jesus in Heaven. The family enjoys snow skiing, boating and swimming. Together, they share a powerful Christian faith.
