Nobody enjoys a good story more than I do, and few folks can tell a good story like Kirk Neely. In this book you will find some of Kirk's finest holiday tales. My favorite is "Santa Almost Got Caught." How well I remember that Christmas Eve when I had to outmaneuver an eight-year-old boy. Kirk Neely spins his unique yarns that span the entire season from Thanksgiving all the way through Epiphany. The chapters are short and easy to read while enjoying
a milk and cookie break. Best of all he reminds us: Thanksgiving is more than
turkeys, Advent is more than decorations, Christmas is more than a jolly old elf, New Year's Day is more than football, Epiphany is more than a star.
With these stories, Kirk shows us that the heart of this season is love. Please read this book. Give it as a present to those you love.
Blessings to all,
Kirk Neely is author of the award-winning A Good Mule Is Hard to Find. Now, he brings his knack for spinning a yarn to Santa Almost Got Caught: Stories for Thanksgiving, Christmas, and the New Year. Guiding us through the holiday season from Thanksgiving through Epiphany, Neely takes us into the woods in search of the perfect red cedar Christmas tree. He'll remind us of the real
reason sweet potatoes were part of holiday meals. In this long anticipated volume, we'll hear tales about a flaming Advent wreath and the Christmas tree emergency that required an exterminator. In each chapter, you will enjoy the wit and humor we have come to expect from Kirk Neely. You will find spiritual depth, wisdom, and insight garnered from his pastoral and personal experience. Sometimes you will chuckle, sometimes you will shed a tear, and sometimes
both will come within the same reading. Santa Almost Got Caught promises to become a holiday classic.
