The Great Christmas Bowl by Susan May Warren

Anytime Susan May Warren releases a new book I am there.  Her books are touching, funny, and just plain fabulous!  I was thrilled to find that she had written a Christmas book.  I am a lover of holiday books!

The Great Christmas Bowl is a book I think every woman can relate too…even us single girls.  Too often we get in our minds the idea of what we want.  But what we want is not what we get.  I found Marianne to be a kindred spirit as she experiences the ups and down of trying to create a perfect Christmas.  And in the end I came out with a better appreciation for my family and for the wonderful celebration that is Christmas.  Oh that our motivation would always be a babe in a manger.    The Great Christmas Bowl is a fantastic book that reminds us of so many wonderful things….family, friends, the gift of Jesus.  It is a must read book for the Christmas season… especially when you are overwhelmed with wanting to create the perfect Holiday!

About The Great Christmas Bowl:

great christmas bowl.JPGMarianne Wallace is focused on two things this holiday season: planning the greatest family Christmas ever and cheering on her youngest son’s team in their bid for the state championship.
Disaster strikes when the team loses their mascot-the Trout. Is it going too far to ask her to don the costume? So what if her husband has also volunteered her to organize the church Christmas tea.
When football playoffs start ramping up, the Christmas tea starts falling apart. Then, one by one her children tell her they can’t come home for Christmas.
As life starts to unravel, will Marianne remember the true meaning of the holidays?
