A Simple Christmas – “The first Christmas was a simple one. So simple that it had all the makings of a first-class disaster. It’s a miracle it turned out well at all. In fact, that’s the whole point. It really was, and remains, a miracle-the greatest miracle of all time. And it really was simple.”
Christmas has become synonymous with shopping, overindulging, competition, and stress. But according to Mike Huckabee (who was a pastor before getting into politics), that was never God’s intention. Going back to the Nativity, Christmas is supposed to be about simple things: faith, love, family, and hope. The hard part, in today’s crazy world, is remembering that those simple things are the most precious of all.
Now Huckabee recounts twelve Christmas memories-often funny, sometimes deeply moving-that range from his childhood in Arkansas to his years as a young husband and father to his time as a governor and then a presidential candidate. These true stories will help you smile, take a deep breath, and maybe slow down your own holiday treadmill.
