“The Making of an Angel”: the story of a Christmas Tree ornament who must learn to care about others to become a true angel. “The Making of an Angel” is the creation of published author, Janet Ortbals, a hair stylist of forty-eight years, mother of three, and grandmother of six.

“After graduating high school, I entered and completed cosmetology school. I have been a hair stylist for forty-eight years. I wrote several books over 26 years ago but never tried publishing them because it was more difficult at this time without the technological advances we have now. I was busy with my life as a wife and a mother while working full time, so I put the thought of being an author on the back burner. The last twenty-six years of my life have been a mix of joy and sorrow. I raised three great children each with their own dreams and ambitions. I have six grandchildren, ranging from three to twenty years. Losing our middle son has been a life changing experience, and his passing has been my inspiration for publishing my book. We all have realized what really matters in this world.” --Janet Ortbals

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Janet Ortbals’ new book tells the tale of a selfish Christmas angel who must learn to see beyond her own demands.

Samantha is a Christmas ornament. As the little angel at the top of the tree, her position as the star of the Christmas Tree drives her to become self-centered and demand the attention of everyone. It will take the kindness of someone special to see through her rough exterior and a near tragedy to help her become the angel she was meant to be.
