I'm excited for my very first sponsored giveaway!
A family friend, Richard Rife, recently published a short book of essays about Christmas, Honoring Christmas in My Heart. I read it last weekend and enjoyed it. It was a lovely way to kick off the Christmas season. I liked it enough that N and I are going to buy a few copies to give as gifts to some of our friends this year.
Its fourteen essays address topics such as giving, Christmas traditions, Christ's teachings, and the eloquent merits of Dickens' story The Christmas Carol, which is Rife's favorite work of fiction. Some of the recollections included are from the years he spent in Korea as a missionary for our church (as my in-laws are doing now). The book is written from an LDS perspective, but its main message is about what Christmas can mean for everyone.
Leave a comment on this post to enter the giveaway and on Monday morning I'll pick a winner at random. Richard will send the winner a signed copy of the book. It makes a nice little gift, so if you want Richard to inscribe it to someone else, that's cool too.
