Sharing the "Real" Santa Claus with Your Children - Win Today!

Kristin and the Santa Secret

Kristin and the Santa Secret

I am a believer.

I believe in the spirit of Santa Claus – I believe because I’ve seen his spirit in action so frequently, most notably again this week when our online friends came through and rescued Christmas for some deserving children. I met Santa’s spirit through the incredibly generosity of my own parents and have endeavored to share it in loving fashion with my children.

And now, I’ve discovered the perfect tool for you to share with your loved ones! Kristin and the Santa Secret is an amazing little book for you to enjoy with your children. Here are a few summary details from the book’s website:

  • Respects the “magical fun” that a family enjoys during the Santa years
  • Empowers children with a very personal explanation about Santa Claus
  • Reinforces the true meaning of Christmas – God’s loving gift of his only begotten son (John 3:16)
  • Explains how we can spread that love to our family and friends

The first time I read Kristin and the Santa Secret I fell in love with it! Since I received an extra copy, I’m going to give this gift away today – leave a comment below by midnight Pacific time today, December 20, 2012 and one winner will be randomly drawn to receive this booklet.

If you’re a parent, please consider purchasing a copy of Kristin and the Santa Secret  to share with your children. Author Christopher Fenoglio and his wife Linda created this precious booklet based on their own experience of teaching their children about Santa Claus. Once you’ve enjoyed it, I believe it will become a cherished part of your family’s Christmas traditions!

Update: Our winner is Stuart. Thanks for entering!

    I’m so interested to see how this book explains Santa Claus to kids! We’ve been talking a lot about how to simultaneously explain Santa to our daughter and emphasize Christ’s birth as the true celebration of Christmas. It’s a topic we’re looking for advice about as some loved-ones have decided not to do Santa at all and some would be appalled if Santa were not a part of Christmas. Thanks for the post!

    Wow, what an opportunity! I love everything about this giveaway. My 10 year old is still showing no signs of not believing. She is an only child, so Daddy and I keep believing too. The fact is that Santa is real and he is in each and every one of us.

  3. I would love to win! A friend and I were just talking about Santa and how we are going to keep it simple but still have all the magic while rejoicing in the reason for the season. Great idea 🙂

    This looks like a good book that would benefit our incoming son, as my husband and I are trying to figure out how exactly to handle the Santa Situation.

    This sounds like a great book to share with all my nieces and nephews! My children are young adults, but they would love to read this with their cousins:)

  6. Thanks for the book drawing entry. I like the idea of connecting the magic of Santa with the true meaning of Christmas. I’m curious to see how the book connects them together. I think this would be great for my toddler to read every Christmas. God Bless.
