Can the love of God that came down at Christmas heal all? Cure all? Lexi believes this with all her heart. Lexi Remington, the twelve-year-old foster child readers worldwide adored in Love Came Down at Christmas, received a new name: Lexi Stotler. Yes, her Christmas wish to be adopted came true. Now, at thirteen, her Christmas wish is to see Mr. Fraudburg be transformed like Mr. Scrooge in A Christmas Carol. So, Lexi brings a stray dog to Mr. Fraudburg. After all, don’t dogs calm a soul down? His son, Adam, asks little of his father, but instantly loves this dog…and asks, pleads, to keep him. The more Adam pushes to keep the dog, Mr. Fraudburg becomes more miserly and despicable. He knows he needs help when his wife, son, and church members shy away from him. But Lexi sees through his tough, rough exterior. She was like that once, too. Lexi enlists the aid of Emma Yoder, an elderly Amish woman. Emma still helps Lexi let love in, and surely she can do the same for Mr. Fraudburg. By Christmas Day, Lexi wonders if her obsession with A Christmas Carol is being played out right before her. Not in Victorian England, but Smicksburg, Pennsylvania.

This book is different from most books on raising children. It is a plea for the parents to truly know and walk with God – for them to love God and His Word. In the correct order, focusing first on the parents, Andrew Murray then urges parents to sincerely and consistently love their children and in all tenderness and gentleness teach them as God also teaches us.
More than one-fifth of US households with children have at least one child with special needs. Raising a child with special needs is spiritually, emotionally, mentally, and physically challenging. Parents of these children need encouragement to restore hope and a passion for God in their lives—but the realities of having to be parent, nurse, therapist, and caregiver make it difficult to find the time or initiative to seek encouragement. Packed with encouragement from parents who understand this complicated balancing act, Refresh is designed to provide just what these parents need. The devotional guides parents to spiritual truths that can be applied to the demands they face every day. It offers perspective and hope through the varying stages and phases families experience, from diagnosis to loss and grief.
