Have you ever wanted more meaning from the Christmas season? In their new book  The 12 Days of Christmas, authors Linda Coates and Leslie S. Kelly help you and your family get just that.  This is not just another Christmas book. It is a way to recapture what has been lost in the hustle and bustle of Christmas so that this year can be different.

The 12 Days of Christmas helps families discover that Christmas Day is the kickoff for the celebration, not the final affair. The twelve-day adventure begins on December 26. In it, you will learn more about the tenets of the Christian faith through wonderful stories and meaningful activities, and create new traditions to last you and your family a lifetime. By uncovering hidden meanings in the old classic Christmas song, Linda and Leslie bring you a new and exciting way to finish one year and begin the next.

Linda & Leslie have both strived to keep the true meaning of Christ in Christmas. Over the years, this task has become more difficult with the excessive commercialization of the holidays. With this book the authors hope to help families take some of the chaos out of the season, and help them draw closer to Christ by focusing on the true meaning of Christmas. The 12 Days of Christmas gives each family member a chance to give gifts of love to Christ instead of just receiving gifts themselves. For Linda and Leslie, this was a labor of love and they both feel if just one family can be touched by this book it will have been worth all the effort.
