For Jeremy, Christmas is just another reminder that he'll never be able to enjoy the things that come so easily to other children. Then one night he has a dream that will change everything. Accompanied by stirring music, this story of finding faith and discovering the power of the Master Healer is sure to be cherished at Christmastime and all year long.

My Review:  

For young Jeremy, Christmas was a reminder of the things he couldn't do.  Following a motor vehicle accident when he was much younger, Jeremy was bound to a wheelchair. Never to romp through the leaves, run with his friends, play football.  Not ever.  One Christmas Eve, feeling very low and full of self-pity, Jeremy retired for bed early.  He was so upset over the things he believed he had lost that even his faith in Jesus was in peril.  After finally drifting off to sleep, he dreamed of a land and time long ago.  A land in which Jesus had been crucified, and those who knew and loved him best testified on his behalf.  

The dream that night changed Jeremy.  He felt his own testimony grow and he knew without a doubt of the divinity of Jesus.  

I read Jeremy's Christmas Journey and listened to the soundtrack that Scott Johnson sent me a link to and was touched.  With tears in my eyes, and a lump in my throat, I finished Jeremy's Christmas Journey thankful for the experience.  

I am not sure why the trial took place after the crucifixion in this story but it served as a powerful reminder of my own beliefs. Jeremy's Christmas Journey, with the soundtrack, is a wonderful spiritual way to celebrate Christmas.  It is a story for families of one or many. A reminder of the things in which we believe.

I highly recommend Jeremy's Christmas Journey as a heart-warming addition to your Christmas traditions.  The musical score will touch your heart and the story will resonate with your soul.
