“The Three Gifts”: the story of Juliana, Joshua, and Daniel and the blessings of the gifts that changes their lives. “The Three Gifts” is the creation of published author, Matt Parker, who conceived the story during a Christmas church service several years ago. Matt developed a special relationship with the Christmas season at a young age. Growing up in the foothills of the Alleghenies, located just outside of Pittsburgh, Matt spent a number of Christmas seasons in the Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh where he was treated for acute asthma. Matthew would spend night after night practicing his breathing as he looked through the brightly decorated window of his hospital room. Trying to hide any signs of wheezing, he hoped he would be able to go home in time to join his mother, father, and four siblings for Christmas. He would spend countless hours lying under the multicolored lights of a Christmas tree, staring at the fold-down Nativity set bathed in the ever-changing colors. It was eventually determined that he was allergic to Christmas trees. Fortunately, his second-grade class voted to keep him instead of their live Christmas tree. “The Three Gifts” is a true family affair made possible by the love of Christmas he instilled into his family. Matt’s younger daughter, Cassidy, is a coauthor and editor while his older daughter, Taylor, is the illustrator. His wife of thirty years, Beth, oversaw the writing process and marketing.
“And my momma sleeps in the stable. After years racked with pain, after years of restlessness. She sleeps. And the light from the star that illuminates her face is not of this world, but from heaven. A sleep of peace. A sleep of joy. And as I watch my mother sleep, tears roll down my face. And the cooing sounds of the baby nearby, gently break the beautiful silence but only add the feeling of peace.” --Matt Parker, The Three Gifts, page 55
