The Crooked Christmas Tree
Author: Damian Chandler
Publisher: Faith Words
The Crooked Christmas Tree is the true life story told from a father’s perspective. The story starts with the way many households start the holiday season, the picking of the family Christmas tree. Mr. Chandler tells the story of how his children picked a crooked Christmas tree. However, as Mr. Chandler and the reader will discover this is no ordinary crooked tree.
Mr. Chandler is set on a road of introspective discovery, set by a tree he didn’t want to begin with. He writes about the lessons he learned through this tree; lessons of rejection, the Lord’s saving Grace, and how God loved us so much He sent His only son to earth to save us. At Christmas, while the perfect Christmas tree is sought to adorn our homes, God sent His perfect son to save our crooked selves.
I really enjoyed reading this book. Mr. Chandler highlights the true meaning of Christmas and how Jesus’ birth is the light that obliterates all our crooked pieces.
I recommend you read this book. It is heartwarming and these lessons will live in your heart beyond this holiday season.
