A Christmas Treasury by Lloyd and Karmel Newell. Published by Deseret Book.

What a treasure "A Christmas Treasury" is! It is a beautiful hardbound book that the family could enjoy for generations. One thing I noticed about it is that it is timeless. This book has beautiful vintage illustrations that feel so warm and nostalgic. It has 25 chapters that each include poems, stories, and quotes about various topics related to Christmas. They are perfect for reading a chapter each night during the month of December.

Some of the chapters include such beautiful topics as; hope, gratitude, traditions, music, compassion, good ceer, selflessness, family, and testimony. Living each attribute listed would bring us closer to Christ. I look forward to the years ahead with my kids around me reading these beautiful messages.
