The Christmas Jars

I started AND finished this book today!  My sister recommended I read it and so while I was at the library the other day, I checked to see if they had it in and much to my pleasure, they did!

It’s a quick read but what a powerful message it provides.  The book, in a nutshell, is about a family who saves a jar full of change each year and then gives it secretly to someone in need at Christmas.  The book has now started a “movement” of people all across the United States doing this.  It’s a wonderful simple idea. 

There is a website that goes along with the book and on it, people have written, telling their stories of jars given and jars received.  If you find yourself with an afternoon to kill, this is an excellent book to pick up because once you start reading it, you won’t be able to put it down!
