A family Christmas Eve tradition that I started a few years ago is to write story for my girls and then read it to them on Christmas Eve night. This year I based the story around Caleb from Kids Bible Travels and I had my friend Hery do five illustrations. He did a beautiful job!

This short story is titled, Caleb and the First Christmas. Caleb gets lost as a young camel and finds himself in the hills of Bethlehem with the shepherds when angels appear and announce the birth of Jesus. I had fun writing it and Hery had fun illustrating it!

If you would like to read the story and see the illustrations, you can access them at
