It’s that time of the year (nearly)…

As a book reviewer, Christmas is a confusing time of the year, mostly because I start reading Christmas books normally in September. Each year publishers produce different Christmas books to help you think about Christmas. Some books are designed to give away to non-Christian friends and family, others are to help you over advent reflectContinue reading “It’s that time of the year (nearly)…”

Christmas is just around the corner. I know, I know, it is still October.
