Christmas has become synonymous with shopping, overindulging, and
stress. But according to Mike Huckabee, that was never God’s intention.
Going back to the Nativity, Christmas is supposed to be about simple
things: faith, love, family, and hope. The hard part, in today's crazy
world, is remembering that those simple things are the most precious.
Huckabee recounts twelve Christmas memories that range from his
childhood in Arkansas to his years as a young husband and father to his
time as a governor and then a presidential candidate. These true stories
will help you smile, take a deep breath, and maybe slow down your own
holiday treadmill. For instance, as kids, Mike and his sister
would sneak open their gifts before Christmas, play with them, then
rewrap them so their parents wouldn't notice. The plan worked great
until one Christmas when young Mike unwrapped a brand-new
football...that was covered in mud. That led to a powerful lesson about
patience and a reminder that the best Christmases are the simple ones.
