'Tis the season to be jolly ... but not always. Some holiday hearts are a stark contradiction to the merriment the season brings. What began in 1991 as Cheryl Berger's personal gift to family and friends has grown into the collection you now hold in your hands. These inspirational writings have been included in her family's annual Christmas cards with the hope of bringing the recipients a little holiday cheer.
Tidings of Comfort and Joy contains more than just seasonal entries, however. Some have to do with situations, circumstances, as well as the unexpected, experienced in everyday life. Bible verses have been woven like a scarlet thread throughout each piece. Some pieces are personal, and some were written for others. All were written with the purpose of encouraging hearts with the hope found in Christ.
Realizing the Lord speaks to her heart through her writing, many hours have been spent seeking God for a word in due season. With a heart for hurting women, Cheryl uses words to minister hope and peace to wounded and broken hearts. If you listen carefully, you can hear songs of hope flowing throughout each piece. It is her prayer that the Lord will use the imagery penned in this collection to fill your heart with tidings of comfort and joy.
