Katie Ann Stolzfus lives in the small Amish community of Canaan, Colorado. At forty she is widowed and raising her first child. But baby Jonas will never know his father, and Katie Ann wonders if her Heavenly Father hasn't forgotten about her as well. Is it really God's plan for her to be a single parent?
Eli Detweiler has come to Canaan for a wedding and a long vacation. Having raised six children following the death of his young wife, Eli is finally an empty-nester. He's enjoying the slower pace of having no one to care for but himself.
When Katie Ann and Eli meet, there is an instant connection. Yet as strong as the attraction is, they both acknowledge that a romance would never work. He is done parenting, while she has just begun.
But as their friendship slowly blossoms into feelings that are as frightening as they are intoxicating, Katie Ann and Eli question if the plans they made for themselves are in line with God's plans.
Can Katie Ann entrust her heart to another man, and rediscover the wonder of God's love?
With an open Bible and this book an individual (or group) will be able to know the truth surrounding the birth of Jesus. When traditional teachings of Christmas are shown not to be in God's word who will you believe? If one loves Christmas more than the truth it's like telling God to shut up. Because the truth has stopped being listened to. This book exposes the false teachings about Christmas. If you don't care what the Bible teaches, then this book is not for you. If on the other hand you have questions about the events that surround His birth then by all mean read and learn the truth. This book is for you. Know the time when Jesus was born. Learn that the true day of His birth was renamed. Why did the wise men need directions? Why did they never see a baby Jesus in a manger? And, King Herod knew the exact day Jesus was born. The truth has been hid and the ones doing it need to be exposed for what they are and that is "false teachers". After reading this book ask them why they don't teach the truth. It's always been there for anyone. We just choose to listen or tell God to "Shut Up".

In The Five Love Languages, Gary Chapman brought to light the different ways people express love and showed why learning to speak and translate another person's love language is the key to healthy and happy relationships. In LOVE AS A WAY OF LIFE, he reveals that cultivating a personal, meaningful language of love begins with placing love at the center of everything we do. Like Rick Warren in The Purpose Driven Life, Chapman illuminates the profound influence of spiritual insight and understanding on our daily lives. Chapman uncovers the qualities that help us express the love we feel and respond to the gift of love from others: Kindness, Patience, Forgiveness, Humility, Courtesy, Giving, and Honesty. Using real-life anecdotes, he examines the obstacles and misunderstandings that undermine relationships, and provides quizzes and exercises to help readers evaluate their own strengths and weaknesses. Rich in wisdom and inspiration, LOVE AS A WAY OF LIFE is an invaluable guide to creating fulfilling and satisfying relationships and reaping the joys of living a love-driven life.
