Stuff Your Own Stocking

4-Book Give-Away! The Word Quilters will give away four copies of A Scrapbook of Christmas Firsts~ Stories to Warm Your Heart and Tips to Simplify Your Holiday for the next four weeks. Become a follower or leave a comment to be entered. First drawing is next Monday, November 30.



This week, to give you a sampling of what’s in store if you win one of the books, we’ll share some of the feedback we’ve gotten from this season or last. Last December, Lynne Ford of WBCL radio in Fort Wayne, IN hosted a one-hour live interview. She was excited about learning about “Blue Christmas” services. She said our book was the first time she’d heard about such an event.

Many communities offer Blue Christmas services for those who may be having a difficult time celebrating. Past sorrows or current tragedies can rob one of the holiday spirit. These services offer a time of reflection and remembering those who have stepped out of our world. You can organize such a service in your community. Just search online for guidelines.


Listen online this Friday (8:05 Central Time, 9:05 Eastern Time) for the re-airing of the above mentioned interview. Here’s the link:

Next Friday, Black Friday, November 27, the Friday after Thanksgiving. Got that?


I’m planning little mini-thanksgiving sessions each morning because we are sooooooo blessed. Have a great week as you give thanks.

I think this is such an awesome idea. The year I lost my mother was the most difficult of my life. Christmas was nearly unbearable. How helpful such a session would have been....
