Educator, Stenger, writes delightful story that teaches what Christmas is all about

Ralf's Christmas Spirit

"The book helps ‘keep Christ in Christmas’ by focusing on the emotions of love and forgiveness instead of greed or selfishness.”

Debra Stenger pens a beloved tale about Ralf, a puppy who is learning about Christmas for the first time. While everyone around him is enthusiastic, Ralf finds himself sad, and one of his owners takes notice. What could possibly be robbing a puppy of the ever-contagious Christmas spirit? Readers will discover this answer, and the true meaning of Christmas in Ralf's Christmas Spirit ($9.99, paperback, 9781498409469; $4.99, e-book, 9781498409476).

“Ralf’s experience is a gentle teaching experience about Christmas,” states the author. “It helps children deal with the abstract concept of being good so that they can receive gifts on Christmas morning. The book helps ‘keep Christ in Christmas’ by focusing on the emotions of love and forgiveness instead of greed or selfishness.”

Debra Stenger received her Master’s of Education through the University of Texas at Dallas. In addition to the experience that she has obtained by teaching in the public school system, the author continues to volunteer teach adults and children at her church. She is a United Methodist lay servant, and regularly leads the children’s time in her church’s worship services. Ralf is the puppet that she uses to communicate the meaning of the Bible message to children.
