Win This Lovely Christmas Miracles Gift Basket

(Atlanta, GA) Many ordinary people experience Christmas miracles—those special moments during the season of giving and receiving when Christmas becomes more than just a holiday. In Christmas Miracles (St. Martin’s Press, October 2009), Cecil Murphey and Marley Gibson share the stories of those who have recognized the special moments that transcend daily experience and transform their lives.

In these stories, people overcome desperate situations through a miraculous twist of fate—all during the most wonderful time of the year. A young boy sits down to read a Christmas book and discovers that his learning disability has vanished. A woman stranded in a blizzard is rescued by a mysterious stranger who she suspects is an angel. And a woman living far from home gets an answer to her prayer in the form of an unexpected gift.

Bestselling author Cecil Murphey says, “We all face discouraging times, whether it's the lack of money, being stuck on a road in a snowstorm, feeling stress, or being hungry and homeless. But God's help is available. I want readers to see that miracles do happen—sometimes simple, unexpected blessings or those that involve the supernatural. We start by asking, and in strange and wonderful ways God tiptoes into our dark nights; we experience renewed joy in life and witness God in action through people and unexpected events.”

  1. The gift basket is amazing! I'm thrilled to be a part of this project and to have two stories included. The book is great for teachers, friends, the mailman, those in the hospital, Aunt Mabel, and all those hard-to-buy-for people on our list. It's beautiful.

  2. I listen to Christmas music/sing Christmas songs/watch Christmas movies all year long. It lifts my spirits and reminds me of my Saviour. Christmas has always been a special time for our family. We never had a lot of money or gifts, but my Mom and Dad always did their best to make it happy, joyful, and special. As adults, my sisters and brother and I (along with our spouses and children) were given the gift of giving from our Mom. She challenged each of us to adopt a needy family in our community and provide Christmas for them. We would buy them groceries, presents, and help with utility/medical bills. Our Mom died on December 9th a few years ago. We had just selected a family to gift and it was bittersweet when we delivered the gifts to them without our Mom there with us. But, it proved once again to be a wonderful, healing gift. For us and for the "needy" family. Although I don't know who was more needy that year; us or them. I love that the Word was made flesh and dwelt among us. I love that Jesus came in the form of a beautiful, helpless child into a loving family. I love that my Mom loved Jesus. I love my Mom. I love Jesus. Pax Christi, Chris

  3. My favorite part of my Christmas celebration is the candlelight communion service on Christmas Eve. For that hour, we can forget about the gifts, the food, and the partying. We can concentrate on worship and praising God for the most incredible gift of all---the coming of Christ to save a world of sinners.

  4. I can't wait to read this book. I love Christmas stories especially when it concerns miracles. Christmas in and of itself is a season of miracles. It is a miracle that so many American citizens can treat each other with love, dignity and respect during the holidays and then after New Year's it all changes. Thanks and can't wait to read it.

  5. I would love the chance to win this book. Please enter me. Thanks!

  6. I always love to hear about miracles. It gives me hope for those I know who need a special miracle from God.


  7. Thank you for this site. I look forward to reading the miracles.

  9. Sometimes when we walk through a valley in life we think that God is not there, but, in reality, he is there, giving us more faith, hope, love, strength, and understanding. God's ways are truly miraculous. He gives us more of his character so that we have more faith, hope, love, strength, and understanding to give to each other, which are miraculous gifts.

    I would love to win the christmas basket, it is so very beautiful.

    In Christ, Kerri ♥
