Author Susan Sleeman & The Christmas Witness & Book Giveaway — 15 Comments

  1. Hi Dawn, I’ll mention this to Susan. On Oct 25th Susan will a guest on my blog again.

  2. Started reading your book ” The Christmas Witness ” months ago. I got half way through it and I lost the book. My book club was sold out. I’m glad I came across this site. Hope to reorder it soon.
    Yes, Mary did have great strength and courage. Sometime you wonder why you go through stuff. A great book that helped me was “God Meant It For Good” by RT Kendall. Hope it will help someone else too!

  3. Mary’s whole life seems to have been one trial after another – i wonder what her youth was like to strengthen her for those? i mean. from almost being rejected by her fiance, having the baby without her mother near, fleeing for Egypt. Did she ever despair?
    Thanks for the giveaway.

  4. I think Mary showed courage being pregnant at such a young age with so many people criticizing and rejecting her.

  5. I think Mary had to be a very strong woman to have not only had Jesus as an unmarried woman, but to have him born in a barn well that took plenty of faith and courage. Your book sounds great, I would love a chance to read it. kittycrochettwo at msn dot com

  6. Hi Liz, AusJenny, and Paula,
    Thank you so much for leaving comments about The Christmas Witness and your thoughts on Mary. She was truly a woman of great strength and courage!

  7. Agree with Apple Blossom–the crucifixion must have seemed unendurable without the strength of faith.

    Susan, best wishes for success of The Christmas Witness.

  8. I think Mary showed strength and courage by accepting the task of carrying Jesus when she was unwed and knew she would be ridiculed by others and possibly rejected by Joseph.

    I love the look of your book (I love Christmas books and as we dont have thanksgiving here I am ready for christmas now.)

  9. Hi Susan, thanks for sharing this book with us, it sounds like a complex story that must have taken a lot from you to write this one. I have thought of Mary in similar ways and wrote a poem once about how she must have felt being so young and have something so tremendous happen to her and how she would have handled herself, compared to young girls of today.
    I would love to read this story, thanks for sharing.

  10. I always loves the line from Luke 2… But Mary treasured all these things, pondering them in her heart. She had a strong mind. Remembering all the precious and unusual things and thinking deeply on them. It seems as though she was one who thought deeply and focused on truth, not letting the lies of the enemy keep her from obeying God and trusting His ways and provision.

  11. I read Susan’s new book and it’s a real page turner! I loved it! I don’t need a copy of the book, I just want to let people know that they should read it!
