A Christmas Gift

Two years ago I wrote a Christmas story during December as a writing exercise. I have had so much fun with this story, I wanted to share it.

This is a children’s story, but I believe adults can enjoy it. I plan to post one chapter a day, Monday through Friday, for the next three weeks, starting Monday the 5th.

I hope you enjoy it. Feel free to share it with anyone you think might like it. Below is a blurb of the story.

I pray this Christmas season will bring you peace, comfort, and hope.

John 1:14: The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.


This is Millie’s first Christmas, and Ruthie says she’ll love it. Ruthie is Millie’s best friend, so she’s sure Ruthie’s right, but why does Millie keep finding Ruthie and Ruthie’s brother Jake crying?

This story is told from the point of view of Millie, an orange kitten. Her best friend Ruthie, who is six years old, teaches Millie about Christmas—the food, decorations, music, presents—and Millie keeps hearing about Jesus. Millie’s friend Bruce, the family dog, also helps her celebrate Christmas, and sometimes gets her in trouble.

Then Ruthie’s big brother Jake breaks his ankle, and Millie also starts learning about sad things—like divorce—when Jake can’t visit his mommy for Christmas. Millie watches Ruthie’s family love each other through the sadness, and find joy in Christmas.
