Review: A Christmas Prayer By: Kimberla Lawson Roby

A Christmas PrayerA Christmas Prayer by Kimberla Lawson Roby
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Alexis Fletcher appears to be a woman who has it all, she even is a motivational speaker to help others become more, but Christmas brings nothing but pain and problems. She can't find any spirit within when she is still mourning her mother's death and when she is in constant battle with her future mother in law. To make matters worse, the strained relationship with her sister is leaving her niece at risk of living hungry, cold, and on the street.
One Sunday Reverend Curtis asks the congregation to go home and write a Christmas Prayer. Although Alexis doesn't feel like it or the spirit inside, she writes her prayer. Sometimes it takes time and rough patches but soon the light shows the way and prayers get answered.
A nice Christmas story that isn't afraid to show the imperfections of people or the Grace of God in forgiveness and love.
