WISO: The Christmas Sweater

“Silence is important; it’s the only time you can hear the whispering of truth.”

I’ve been extra vigilant on the Christmas book lookout and I found a gem!

Here’s what I’ve been sippin on:

The Christmas Sweater
by Glenn Beck
This #1 New York Times bestselling author and renowned radio and television host delivers an instant holiday classic; about boyhood memories, wrenching life lessons, and the true meaning of the gifts we give to one another in love.

If You Could Change Your Life by Reversing Your Biggest Regrets, Sorrows and Mistakes…Would You?

I couldn’t help myself I had to do an extra post to share this book. I started reading it a few days ago and I haven’t been able to put it down. It has been very heartwarming and moving; the perfect holiday read. I will warn those out there who are prone to water works, it’s a good tearjerker.
The Christmas Sweater is a book I know I will re-visit in future years.

“Silence makes you think, and thinking makes you realize that
not all problems are caused by someone else.”
