This book and the sequel, Engaging Father Christmas, tells the story of Miranda, a young woman searching for her father. Her search leads her to the unexpected — a community and a place to belong.
In the books, her journey to find her father also pushes her to engage with her heavenly Father in a way she has avoided for much of her life. The ending has its happy-ever-after feel, but doesn’t tie up perfectly (The happy ending found in the movie ties itself in a nicer bow than the books). It’s a life-giving (and short!) read for women of any age and a great read-aloud with your teen daughter.
–>>The Hosting Menu includes: cottage pie, a wintry salad, maple-oatmeal scones, a hot tea bar + my favorite winter teas, sides, extras, and ambience for your meal.
–>>I’ve written seven “conversation questions”– heart-level questions to spur connection and community within your family or with friends.
P.S. I think the movie of Finding Father Christmas is best watched after reading Finding Father Christmas and Engaging Father Christmas, but I am a purist when it comes to the “right” way to integrate books and movies! I do say this because the movie pulls in plot elements found in the second book. You have been warned!
