In The Gift, Lila Ellexson Senter reflects on Christmases past and takes us along for the journey. Throughout time, she and her friends and family have discovered the joy of “word gifts”–collections of quotations, original poetry, and stories that have amplified the meaning of Christmas for both the gift giver and the recipient. This book represents some of the most meaningful word gifts they have exchanged over the years. The words, so carefully chosen, reflect a strong faith, and the beautiful artwork that accompanies each word gift amplifies the message. Reading The Gift is truly a gift to yourself. Throughout the year, pick up this book and let it remind you of the importance of love, family, and faith. And during the holidays, consider wrapping it up for a friend–along with a word gift of your own–so they, too, can reconnect with the true meaning of Christmas.
