Something Special for the Holidays

Kathleen Mowery

I want the reader to know that it’s okay not to understand why God does what He does

Do you find it hard to give something up that you know was the right thing to do?

Within the pages of The Christmas Letters ($16.49, paperback, 9781545629284; $8.99, e-book, 9781545629291). Readers will meet Frank Trask, who writes letters every Christmas to friends in town who need something extra for the holidays.

His family had been supportive until three years ago when Frank had a heart attack and the letters consumed all of his time away from his family. His daughter, Emma, thinks it’s time for her dad to retire from his letters and spend more time with the family.

“I believe everybody can relate to this book,” Kathy Mowery says. “How does it make you feel when God snatches something out of your hand or forces you to give something up that you knew was the right thing to do? How do you feel when He gives you a challenge that you know there is no way you can do that? We all have questions on the challenges we face every day.”

Tension, anger, heartache along with love, patience and forgiveness during the holiday season will make this Christmas the Trask family will never forget.

“I want the reader to know that it’s okay not to understand why God does what He does,” the author states. “Sometimes God’s will is that we stay in a season for a long period of time waiting for God to move or move us. God can challenge us when we are forced to give up one task for another according to His will.”
