The December issue of Simple Grace highlights the new novel from Patricia Davids, An Amish Noel. Here, Patricia shares the special meaning she finds in the Christmas story and the holiday activity that brings her family together
Patricia sees the holiday season in particular as a beautiful reminder of the ways God is at work in our world.“For me, the Christmas story is about announcing the good news with a whisper and not with a shout,” Patricia says. “Isn’t it amazing that God chose the shepherds, those lowly men, to be the first to hear that our Savior was born? They alone witnessed the hosts of heavenly angels singing praises. They went in search of a new king and found a babe in a manger—wow.”
