Follow the Star — Christmas Stories That Changed My Life
By T.D. Jakes

Bishop Jakes is the founder and pastor of Potter’s House, one of the fastest growing churches in the nation, where he pastors an interracial congregation of more than 26,000 members.  He is the author of several books and has a daily morning show, The Potter’s Touch.

In this book, Jakes tells what Christmas is all about and how the Christmas stories touched his heart and shaped his life.  With gentle guidance and inspirational messages, Bishop Jakes takes us on a journey to Christmas past and present and leads us to embrace fully the magnitude of the miracle as we celebrate the birth of Christ. Some of the 20 chapter titles invite you to read it and take in the lessons, such as: Life is a Journey, You Have His Word on It,” “Angels Watching Over me, My Lord,”  “Be Careful What You Wish For,” “God’s Timing is Perfect,” “ God Always has a Plan,” and more.

It is easy reading.  The last paragraph is quoted here.  “As your life returns to normal when the Christmas season has ended, I encourage you to take the Gift wherever you go.  Oh, how I hope you will continue to unwrap His wonder in your everyday life and show Him off to those around you.  You know the world needs the Gift that you have, and in your own unique way, you can bring a little Christmas into every day.”
