'Twas nearly the night before Christmas, and holiday spirit was stirring all through the ward meetinghouse - thanks to the children's pageant director, who'd spent the last month writing the script, assigning parts, sewing costumes, building a stable, and directing twenty-some overexcited kids. Despite being on the verge of a nervous breakdown, the director couldn't be more pleased as the bishop stood to welcome the audience in the perfectly prepared cultural hall. But just as the opening prayer began, a windblown little girl ran into the room, grabbed the director's hand, and reminded her of a forgotten promise the director couldn't keep - a promise that, if broken, might also break the fledgling faith of a vulnerable child. From celebrated LDS author Kerry Blair comes this true story of an almost-Christmas Eve when an ordinary woman learned an extraordinary lesson in faith, prayer, and God's love that will set hearts aglow with the spirit of the season.
