    One of my favorite things about the Christmas season is everyone’s attitude shift. Suddenly, people are kinder and more thoughtful of others. I LOVE CHRISTMAS!ReplyCancel

    Thanks so much, Virginia, for popping over and for providing the books for the giveaway. I really loved reading them.
    It’s hard to name only one favorite thing, but Christmas lights are one for sure. I also like the music, the smells, and the time spend indoors with family. Good luck, everyone!ReplyCancel

    Love Virginia’s books! Her characters are fun, faith-filled, and people I would love to meet (and say “Duh” to because they’re so much more intelligent than I am! LOL). I’ve read most of her books, including “Season of Joy” and would love the opportunity to win her new one! Thank you for the giveaway. Blessings!ReplyCancel

    I let my excitement get away from me so I didn’t realize I was supposed to leave a comment about my favorite part of the Christmas season… Oops, sorry about that…

    Since becoming a believer 10 years ago, I love the focus of the True reason for the season and steering our household away from the commercial aspects. Getting together with our kids and grandkids makes our day!ReplyCancel

    I love the focus of faith and family at the Christmas season – my two favorite things! It couldn’t get any better for me! I love Virginia’s books. Loved the first book in this series and can’t wait to read the second one! The Denver mission is a great backdrop! I feel like I want to run over there and volunteer! Virginia knows I’m a fellow Oregonian, we just live on opposite sides of the state 🙂ReplyCancel
