Description

Christmas is the heart and face of God. It is Emmanuel, God with us—the fulfillment of the voices of the prophets. The rough-hewn wood of the manger was the first step of our infant Redeemer toward Gethsemane and the stark cross on the hill. The story of Christmas is love expressed and hope fulfilled. May you experience all that is Christmas through these pages that reflect the heart and face of the One called Love. This collection of family-friendly short stories, devotionals, poems, and tidbits is presented by the members and friends of Delmarva Christian Writers’ Fellowship in Georgetown, Delaware, founded and directed by Candy Abbott. For more information on DCWF, visit www.DelmarvaWriters.com. When Candy Abbott, director of DCWF, invited members and friends of the group to write and submit Christmas stories to compile into a book, she thought it was a training exercise for their own benefit. But, when she finished editing, she felt the content was worthy of a broader audience. The 142-page book, available on Amazon, is being eagerly received by the public. Simply entitled Christmas, this anthology published by Abbott’s company, Fruitbearer Publishing LLC, contains family-friendly short stories, devotionals, poems, and tidbits, all relating to Christmas. Contributors, in addition to Candy Abbott from Georgetown, Delaware, range from multi-published authors to those who are seeing their work in print for the first time: Gail Atlas, Seaford; Wilma Caraway, Georgetown; Lori Ciccanti, Ocean View; Leslie Claunch, Georgetown; Jean Davis, Ocean View; Malorie Derby, Georgetown; Cheri Fields, Denton, Michigan; Judi Folmsbee, Ellendale; Barbara Foster, Lehigh Acres, Florida; Faye Green, Middletown; Pam Halter, Pennsville, New Jersey; Barry Jones, Seaford; Michele Jones, Seaford; Betty Kasperski, Georgetown; Eva Maddox, Seaford; Kris Penrod, Seaford; Claire Smith, Denton, Maryland; David Smith, Georgetown; Kristin Whitaker, Germany; and Cat (Catherine) Young, Millsboro. The cover was provided by Malorie Derby who arranged for Laura E. Pritchett to illustrate it for Christmas cards, which were also published by Fruitbearer.

CANDY ABBOTT is an author, publisher, inspirational speaker, and grandmom. But most of all, she sees herself as a “fruitbearer” as it is her life’s goal to exhibit the Fruit of the Spirit (Gal. 5:22-23) in all that she does. She began writing in 1983, around the same time she co-founded Sisters in Christ, a women's prayer group. Candy is a charter member of Southern Delaware Toastmasters, elder and deacon at the Georgetown Presbyterian Church, director of the annual Fruitbearer conference, and founder of Delmarva Christian Writers’ Fellowship. In January 2014, Candy founded Mothers With a Mission, an organization devoted to strengthening the moral and spiritual foundation of our homes, families, and communities. She and her husband, Drew, own and operate Fruitbearer Publishing, LLC, an award-winning company, established in 1999. They have three children and four grandchildren, all near their home in Georgetown, Delaware. For more information visit www.fruitbearer.com.
