â€śEvery Christmas, I still think about that guitar and the sacrifice it represented. And I hope I donâ€™t forget to think about the greatest sacrifice of all, Godâ€™s gift of Himself.â€ť Â Christmas has become synonymous with shopping, overindulging, competition, and stress. But according to Mike Huckabee (who was a pastor before getting into politics), that was never Godâ€™s intention. Going back to the Nativity, Christmas is supposed to be about simple things: faith, love, family, and hope. The hard part, in todayâ€™s crazy world, is remembering that those simple things are the most precious of all.Â Now Huckabee recounts twelve Christmas memoriesâ€”often funny, sometimes deeply movingâ€”that range from his childhood in Arkansas to his years as a young husband and father to his time as a governor and then a presidential candidate. These true stories will help you smile, take a deep breath, and maybe slow down your own holiday treadmill.If youâ€™re looking for a little clarity, sanity, and inspiration at this insane time of year, youâ€™re sure to enjoy A Simple Christmas.
