Lawrence D. Elliott

Author Lawrence D. Elliottabout this book: Christmas has been an interesting time of year for me. I've had wonderful experiences, and some I felt would be the worst memories of my life. Surprisingly, the latter turned out to be blessings in disguise.

I've been poor. I've even lived through a period of homelessness. Later, I would learn I'd been enriched by these moments in ways that I'm still counting to this day.

Once I found myself thousands of miles from my family, filled with feelings of longing. Then, I shared a wonderful Christmas Eve with strangers in Germany. They eventually became great friends and I never forgot their kindness.

I've even baked a special "holiday" sweet potato pie for a German family who had never heard of such a strange dish. It was a magical moment to see the look of surprised delight on their faces as they took their first bite.

This collection contains four unforgettable and heart-felt stories from my life that serve as reminders of the true meaning of Christmas. One was even published in the popular book A Chicken Soup for the Soul Christmas, released in 2007.

I'm sure you'll agree these stories carry a meaning that reaches beyond the holiday season. They're stories of sharing, of caring, and show how different cultures can come together in harmony…if we want to.

More than a writer, I consider myself a storyteller. So...sit back and relax, my friend. Pour yourself a cup of coffee and let me tell you my Christmas Stories from my Heart.
