The author of Lost & Found helps readers discover the true meaning of Christmas.
This wise and moving little book carries a powerful message: What we lose is not always as important as the lesson we can learn from the loss. This idea is especially true at Christmas, when our preoccupation with our own needs can conceal the true joy that lies at the heart of the holiday. Applying valuable lessons learned from his own life in small-town America, John Jenson shows us in numerous ways how personal setbacks can lead to unexpected joys. His simple truths include:
-I lost my belief in Santa sometime around the second grade.
-I found the fun in keeping the mystery alive for those who still waited for him every Christmas Eve. Making things happen for others reflects the true spirit of Christmas.
-I lost my yearly dollar gift from my grandma after she passed away.
-I found I missed her a lot more than a dollar. Memories of special people are worth far more than anything we can fit in an envelope.
Filled with universal wisdom that practical and profound, here is a book readers will turn to again and again as a source of motivation and inspiration during the holiday season.
