“One of life’s greatest tragedies is when a young person is forced to endure the loss of a parent.
In The Christmas Portrait, Phyllis Nichols gives us a heartwarming glimpse into the mind and life of a young girl who must make this painful transition. The story of how she manages to find her way through the sorrow and emerge with a strengthened faith in God and family is both fulfilling and emotional. This really is a remarkable book, one that challenges the reader to make each moment in life count and to work each day to bring a smile to someone’s face.
Life is complicated, filled with distractions that compete for our time and attention. Phyllis Nichols gives us a chance to pause and consider what really matters in life: family, friends, faith, and yes, contentment. I can’t say enough about how powerful this story is and how well-written. I highly recommend it. Read it And then read it again.”
