Christmas Miracles by Cecil Murphey & Marley Gibson is the perfect book to help you get in the right frame of mind for the holidays by reminding you of what Christmas is really all about. The authors have taken true stories from a variety of authors about their own Christmas miracles. Births, deaths, injuries, and poverty are themes all touched on here, each with their own message of hope and faith. I definitely recommend keeping a box of tissues handy while reading. The stories are overflow

This was a great informative children’s book that teaches children about Christmas in various countries, and the many traditions that are celebrated by those countries. This is a very eye-opening book especially for children. It teaches them about different cultures while taking them on a journey around the world to twenty different countries. This book is great for teaching children about diversity, and how different parts of the world do things in different ways, and it doesn’t mean that one w ...more

Christmas Miracles is a collection of true stories about the miracle of Christmas, times when God stepped into everyday life and made His presence known. The miracles described in this book are of the extraordinary and the ordinary, of the gloriously happy and the deeply poignant. Like the story of angels who changed a tire for an elderly couple during a snowstorm, and of a special nativity set that gave a single mom and her two boys hope during one bleak Christmas season. There’s a story of the ...more

Beautiful little stories of peoples experiences of miracles around the Christmas season. I have a slight bias as a friend has written one of the stories, but it's still amazing to see what God has done in peoples lives, whether leaning towards the simple or more complex, He is amazing! Well worth the read if you need a reminder of how much He loves!

I kept thinking the next story would be great. No such luck. Chicken Soup does a better job. Lots of medical miracles. I was glad to see that some of the stories did address death at the holidays, since not everyone's medical miracle comes true. It was okay, but not my favorite of these kind of Christmas books.

Enjoyed reading a book where people shared inspirational stories that happened to them that left them feeling a greater connection to God and mankind.

Each year we chose a Christmas themed book to read during the holiday season. We read a selection or two a day. These were short and to the point and very moving/uplifting. This one had more short stories than there are days in December, so it took us longer but I definitely recommend it. It is not a book to read at all at once or the stories begin to feel redundant and predictable.

If you look at my list of "read" books, you will notice that I don't hand out a lot of 4 or 5 stars. I liked this book. The stories were good, moving and often times inspirational. A nice little book and an easy read, but sorry to say nothing that really grabbed me and made it memorable.

I started this book during the Christmas season and recommend it for anyone who believes in the "magic" of the Christmas season and enjoys reminders of the true meaning of Christmas. Many of the stories are truly heartwarming.

Very good, easy read and uplifting. I got this for Christmas so I read it after Christmas. This would be a great book to read before Christmas to have the right mind-set prior to the celebration of Christ's birth!!

Beatiful stories for the Christmas season...I cried through many of them because they simply touch your heart. Definitely a book to read each year to renew the spirit at Christmas.

Inpiring stories. Quick Read. But to me a number of the testamonies do not classify as miracles to me. At the same time, some of the stories were so powerful.
