{Free Epub} ¹ The Shoe Box: A Christmas Story ð eBook or E-pub free

The Shoebox is a very sweet story with a touching and inspirational conclusion It is very short, and seemed rather sumed up to me Not as compelling and emotional as I expected from a Rivers book, but it is a short and sweet holiday read. Does this count as a full book I m not sure, but I m super close to 45 books and I was able to check this one off during a 30 minute run I feel slightly bad to pick a few super short books lately, but not bad enough that I wouldn t count them This one was simple, endearing, and a really good reminder about giving all we have to the Lord. I read this at Christmas and it was absolutely adorable Many many moons ago.

This was a pretty good short story about a boy named Timmy who had a shoe box of treasures that he gave to the Lord during a play reenactment about the birth of Jesus The story also includes recipes and memories from the author as well as the Christmas story Look for this book at your local library and wherever books are found. {Free Epub} ¹ The Shoe Box: A Christmas Story ⚨ Author Francine Rivers once created her own God Box for talking with God Whenever something was bothering Rivers she would write a prayer about it and slip it in her decorated cardboard box It was this personal God Box that gave her the idea for writing this compelling Christmas story about a foster child named Timmy whose only valued possession is a shoebox His foster parents, a young Christian couple, are of course curious about thisyear old s mysterious box What could be inside But knowing that his privacy is one of the few things Timmy has left, they decide not to pry Rivers uses the backdrop of Timmy s foster family, church community, and the dedication of his birth mother to illustrate what Christian faith can do The Christmas pageant finale is a true heart warmer for all believers This is a quick read, cute book by an Author that I really enjoy reading her books This would be a nice story to read to a child It is a super quick read and the Author shares holiday recipes throughout I read the whole book this morning.
