It's autumn in Harmony, and Pastor Sam Gardner has vowed to be ready for Christmas. Determined to redeem a dreadful history of gift giving, Sam enrolls in a scrapbooking class to make a Christmas gift his wife will never forget. However, Sam's absence from their home every Wednesday night, coupled with his fishy alibi of attending a men's group, raises her suspicions.
Meanwhile, Sam struggles in the class and must attempt to complete his project with only the help of his faithful secretary, Frank. As Christmas fast approaches and rumors of Sam's Wednesday night absences swirl along with the snow, a series of mishaps leads to a Christmas no one will soon forget.
Philip Gulley is a Quaker minister, writer, husband, and father. He is the bestselling author of Front Porch Tales, the acclaimed Harmony series, and is coauthor of If Grace Is True and If God Is Love. Gulley lives with his wife and two sons in Indiana, and is a frequent speaker at churches, colleges, and retreat centers across the country.
“Even those unfamiliar with this delightful series will find this novella delightful. Think Seventh Heaven meets I Love Lucy.”
“Perfect for a chilly afternoon in front of the fire. Won’t take long to read, but the smile will linger.”
avid reader5 Stars Out Of 5April 19, 2009avid readerHilarious! Funny! Sam's taking a scrapbooking class to make his wife a scrapbook for Christmas. His teacher? Well, she could have been a Nazi. She shows the class by Sam's example, how NOT to make a scrapbook. This is hysterical! Laughter! Funny! In scrapbooking class, Sam is alarmingly transported back to a 4th grade gluing endeavor. A somewhat slapstick tale of scrapbooking woes and other follies. His wife Barbara has no clue where he spends his Wednesday evenings. A mens meeting that talks about riding mowers for 2 hours!?! Frank, Sam's secretary gets the Friendly Women is a huff. Gotta have Sam's personality to pastor these people! Is he dying of cancer, polio or some other disease? Anyone know the signs of a mouse bite?
