There are so many man-made pressures associated with the Christmas holiday such as standing and waiting in long lines to buy gifts and the stress of just feeling alone. Sadly for many Christmas is a time when problems do come into our lives such as debt, worry, loneliness, despair, and even the thought of suicide. Many people will be saddened by the fact that they will not have the money to buy presents for their children, family, or friends.
However, we have to realize that there is more to life than the pain, problems, and the present predicaments. There are changes, progress, salvation, and surprising developments going on in the middle of things that seemed to be permanent, unyielding and unchangeable. Jesus was not born into the world to abandon it, nor did God save the human race by dying on Calvary cross only to forsake us and ignore us. There is hope and in this hope there is a joy that the world cannot take away from us. All we have to do is embrace this hope and the joy will overtake us and change our world forever. This book will enlighten and help you find the joy of Christmas and change your world for the better, that you will never be same again. For there is hope for all of life situations through a life of Jesus Christ, all we have to do is believe and trust God.

Having a dream to re-build decaying communities, and lives by making the world a better place for all of humanity to live in peace and harmony, the Rev. Christopher D. Handy strives to raise the conscience of people everywhere to make a difference. His meager beginnings in a small rural town in Monroe, Louisiana and his childhood in a housing project greatly contributed to his mission to enlighten, inform, educate, and motivate people to better themselves, their communities, and the world around them.
Handy has written many articles for various newspapers and magazines. He has organized marches to combat violence, injustices, and poverty, and while in school in Michigan he ministered on the 'bad' streets of Detroit and other cities. He continues to uphold justice and freedom by sharing his experiences with audiences everywhere. His first book “The Scars of Racism” has made a stunning and positive impact on people of all races.
In April 2011, Dr. Handy was appointed Presiding Bishop of the Louisiana Conference from Fellowship of Christ International; his appointment was accredited to his many years of dedicated service to God, service to humanity, and ministry. His district covers the entire state of Louisiana.
His educational background includes an Associate Degree in Business Administration from Louisiana Business College, a Bachelor’s Degree in Religious Education, a Bachelor’s Degree in Theology, a Master’s of Divinity Degree, and a Doctorate of Theology Degree from Andersonville Baptist Seminary in Camilla, Ga.
