God Bless Us Every One


What could be more fun than taking a break from the heat and humidity of July in the south than reading a Christmas novella? “God Bless Us Every One” is my first Christmas book for 2016 and I sincerely hope that I enjoy those to come as much as I enjoyed it.

In this thoughtful but fun story, “God Bless Us Every One”, Charlie Dixon’s life runs roughly parallel to the Dickens Christmas Carol she is helping with behind the scenes. Charlie eventually learns that sometimes our biggest disappointments can lead to the greatest blessings. Easily read in one evening, this novella is written with heart and is filled with love, forgiveness, and reconciliation. Sweet and poignant, it is a must read this Christmas season.

When Charlie disapproves of having to work with Dustin Kennedy, the seventh-grade English teacher, Grandma Esther encourages her to take a deeper look at why the book by Charles Dickens had been written in the first place and what the book could teach Charlie about the needs of the children in their own community.
