An Unexpected Christmas

| November 26, 2013 | 1 Comment

I wanted to share with you a very special project one of my bloggy mates has been working on. Simone Graham from Great Fun 4 Kids and I are kinda similar. We are both graphic designers, and we design and sell printable party designs/invitations. You could say we are competitors… but we both believe there is plenty of room for all of us and would rather help than hinder. One thing on my career to-do list is to write a book and I am a little bit jealous that Simone has hit that milestone.

An Unexpected Christmas

An Unexpected Christmas was written by Simone back in 2011 for her own three children. Illustrated with photos of her kids it was a hit and friends and family convinced her it was an awesome book that deserved to be published and shared. So in 2012 she did just that and self-published the book for others.

Based on the premise that God’s plan to send a new born baby to save mankind was kind of unexpected. The story revolves around the angels reactions to this news and it is pure delight! This year Simone has been working on a new edition and it now includes many more “angels” along with the original characters.

You can order your very own copy of An Unexpected Christmas direct from Simone over on her blog. She has a limited number of copies for NZ residents with cheaper postage but you can also order direct from Amazon. So get in quick these would make a beautiful gift for any child.

Last year St Paul’s Church in Auckland chose Simone’s story and created a short film based on it for their annual Christmas event. Watch it below and fall in love with the story.

Congratulations Simone!!
