The Romance of Christmas by Sarah Price

I love a good romance story, don't you? 
At this time of year, when we get ready to celebrate the holidays, I always think about the romance behind Joseph and Mary’s relationship. Of course, I’m a diehard romantic so, in my mind, I see love everywhere so it shouldn't be surprising that it has always been one of my favorite stories in the Bible. 
Despite the stigma and problems associated with his soon-to-be bride's unexpected pregnancy, Joseph listened to the angel and stood by Mary’s side. And even though not much is said about her relationship with Joseph, she, in turn, proved to be a good wife for him and mother to the baby—think about how frantic they were when looking for the young Jesus during a pilgrimage to Jerusalem!



That is what is at the core of Amish Faith: love even when it is not founded in the most ideal of circumstances. 
Many years ago, during the holiday season, I met an Amish couple who inspired this novel. He was a rather striking, soft-spoken young Amish man and she was simply lovely—in mannerism and personality. They had several children and she could bare no more. Unfortunately, they both wanted a larger family and against doctor’s orders, she became pregnant. 
What greater gift to give a loving husband than a newborn baby!
My mind began to whirl—as it so often does—with the what if’s. What if she couldn’t carry the baby? What if something went wrong? What if…?
Fortunately, everything went well for the couple. But the seed was planted in my mind and from it was born my novel, Amish Faith, my latest Love Inspired book that is currently being sold at Walmart and online. 
Amish Faith is a book that explores love on many different levels. It's the perfect read for a cold winter's night. 
If you cannot find Amish Faith in the bookstores, it is available online via Amazon

  1. Sarah, I love the Christmas stories that come out at this time of the year. Adding a Christmas theme to a story makes it that much more special. Years ago, I head a book by an well known author about the love story between Mary and Joseph. I wish I could remember what it was called because it was very good.

    Amish Faith sounds like a great story and I love the Amish couple that inspired it. Can't wait to read it.

    I hope you and your family have a Merry Christmas.

  2. Nice post, Sarah. I love what you did with the wreath. I love Christmas stories myself. It's that time of year when love seems even more important and special. And of course Mary and Joseph's love story is one of the most precious of all. Blessings.
