Review of THREE ANGELS FOR CHRISTMAS
Lori Nawyn is an award-winning essayist and author of short stories whose latest offering is a beautifully illustrated, seven-page Christmas booklet entitled, Three Angels for Christmas.
Punctuated by three of her heartwarming Christmas card images created in her own signature style, the story within is a quick-read glimpse of a moment in the author’s life when the Christmastime loss of three dear loved ones challenged her ability to appreciate the intangible gifts Christ’s birth brings to each of us.
Like permitting a glimpse into her own journal, Nawyn invites readers to spend a few minutes joining her on her journey from innocent joy, to despair and back again. Intended especially for others who may be grieving lost loved ones during what is for some, a painfully difficult time of the year, Lori Nawyn’s booklet concludes with a discussion exercise and three principles she gleaned from her trials that could be used to facilitate thoughtful sharing.
Christmas card-sized and packaged, with an envelope included, Three Angels for Christmas provides a tender, empathetic holiday offering of hope for the sender who is seeking a special Christmas greeting for a harrowed heart.
