Publisher's Summary

In this real-life Christmas fable, when a Dad decides to let his kids select the family Christmas tree, he gets an unexpected lesson about God's love.

In this thoroughly contemporary holiday story, a father lets his children choose the family Christmas tree. To his surprise, the kids pick one that is crooked. As he tries one thing after another to make the tree look right, he rediscovers the power of God's love. He begins to understand Christmas in a new way, particularly when his family decorates their tree and crowns it with a star, never even noticing the crookedness he spent hours in the garage struggling to hide. The tender and laugh-out-loud narrative of real-life relationships propels the listener through the most un-generic Christmas story. This upbeat and comedic treasure refreshes the Christmas message of love and faith.

Powerful message, beautiful imagery, and compelling narration!

I highly recommend this book. I was impressed by its evocative metaphors drawing us to a deeper understanding of Gods perfect love for us ‘crooked trees’.
I am going to buy several copies to give to friends and family.
