Having been married for over 26 years, I know it takes a lot of work for a couple to stay together. Marriage requires dedication, determination and having the love of Christ. Add children to the mix and the challenge becomes more involved. A church has the ability to help bring a couple closer together or increase the distance between a couple exponentially. This book addresses both of these issues and more.

Lydia and John Jensen find themselves arguing and fighting more than they get along, Their children, Matthew and Grace suffer from the stress of their parents’ altercations. But during the busy weeks leading up to Christmas, something unexpected and miraculous happens. A stranger enters into their church and into their lives in a very unexpected way.

When an elderly black man in shabby clothes and with an unkempt appearance enters the church, Lydia and John witness how their fellow church members treat an elderly man who is obviously homeless. But through this stranger and his fellow homeless “parties”, the entire family learns the true meaning of Christmas and to love each other.

Truly this story made me laugh, cry, and want to continue reading the book. As we begin to approach the Christmas season, this book serves to remind the reader of what is truly important.

The passages of Scripture quoted throughout the book are some of my absolute favorites, including the passage from Hebrews about entertaining strangers since they may actually be angels. From the moment Enoch enters the story, I found myself wondering if he was an angel or Enoch from the Bible. I will leave that for you to find out by reading the book for yourself.

If you want to read an inspirational and thought-provoking story, check out this book for yourself.
