CHRISTMAS EVE BABY * Lenora Worth
It’s a Christmas Eve to remember when a laboring mother-to-be shows up at the King sisters’ Shadow Lake Inn amid a snowstorm. Midwife Sarah King and her three daughters go into action, while the men of the family search for the woman’s husband. And with faithful hearts and helping hands, this magical night may unite a brand-new family just in time to share a Christmas blessing.

BEST CHRISTMAS PROGRAM EVER * Rachel J. Good
On Emily Flaud’s second day of work at the Green Valley Farmer’s Market, two hungry children in tattered clothes snitch some cheese samples—and Emily’s heart. Her co-worker, Hosea King, is less beguiled. He is still grieving the loss of his wife and daughter two years before, especially as Christmas approaches. But when the children are in need of adoption, Emily longs to become their mother—in a prayer that includes Hosea . . .

LOVING LUKE * Kelly Long
Wanted: Amish Mail Order Groom. Must be excellent with kinner. Recently widowed,Grace Fisher must be practical. She has a general store to run and needs a gentle man to help raise her kinner. But when Luke King appears, Grace sees a scruffy man who looks far from husband material, while Luke sees a woman who deserves better than he. Yet with faith, each may gain the courage to see beneath the surface—and create a family for many Christmases to come . . .

by Lenora Worth, author of Amish Christmas Kinner

Is there anything more precious at Christmas than being around excited children?

In my novella A Christmas Baby (part of the Christmas Kinner collection along with Rachel J. Good and Kelly Long) I pictured a pregnant woman out in the snow calling for help. The story grew from there and brought back the three King sisters of Shadow Lake, some of my favorite characters, to give readers an idea of how their lives were going now that they’d all found love. As each sister sits with the woman in need who shows up at the inn during a snowstorm, they drop hints of their own marriages and shared their doubts about marriage and babies. In the end, they know they wouldn’t choose any other life, and so does this young married woman who only wants her husband to arrive in time for the birth of their baby.

We know of the most important birth during Christmas—the birth of Jesus Christ. I thought about Mary a lot when I was writing this story. Was she scared? Did she doubt? Did she wish she had family with her in that manger? Women have a task that goes beyond understanding in giving birth, but it is one of the most important tasks of their lives. And while some women won’t experience this, they can still have a heart for children through adoption or teaching or being a really great great-aunt. I always say a mother’s heart holds a lot of secrets, and we know Mary pondered on many things in her amazing life.

A Christmas Baby brought out all my maternal instincts and made me thankful for my two children—now grown. It also renewed my awe of that special night when a baby was wrapped in swaddling cloth and held by his mother with such a sweet love. Mary had dreams for her son and Her Son had a mission that still remains vital (and even more so) these days. So this Christmas, when you’re smiling at a child’s awe, take some of that awe into your heart and know that He loves us and He wants us to love one another.

That is the greatest secret of a mother’s heart. Merry Christmas!
