A Christmas children's book about St. Nicholas's untold story. The Legend of Christmas

The Legend of Christmas: St. Nicholas was a Fruit Pot!

Imagine a world devoid of the twinkling lights, festive carols, and the joyous fruit of the Spirit filling the Christmas air. It’s difficult to fathom. Yet, without the fruit of the Spirit, St. Nicholas, better known as Santa Claus, and the celebration of Christmas lack a great deal. It is sometimes hard to teach Jesus as the center of Christmas when that big, red, jolly ol’ elf named Santa Claus is everywhere.

That’s why I’m so excited to introduce a new children’s Christmas book. It tells the untold story of St. Nicholas, a.k.a. Santa Claus. In this story, you’ll see how Santa is a fruit pot, just like me.
