The Candymaker’s Gift

By grandparenting 5 years ago3 Comments

Today I would like to share with you a YouTube presentation of The Candymaker’s Gift produced by my friends David and Helen Haidle. The Candymaker’s Gift is an excellent story to share with your grandchildren during this Christmas season about the real meaning of Christmas. You can watch it with them or you can send it to them in an email. It is an excellent time to share the message of God’s love with your grandchildren.

You can listen to it on YouTube at http://youtu.be/OZkiFpfnL1w.

Helen Haidle, award-winning author of 54 books for children and adults, wrote the first book on the meaning of the candy cane. Helen wrote this fiction story after she had shared the symbolism of the candy cane with her Sunday school students. “The Candymaker’s Gift” won a C.S. Lewis Silver Award and a CBA Silver Medallion.

To learn more about David & Helen Haidle’s Seed Faith ministry go to http://seedfaithbooks.com/shopexd.asp?id=163. The book is out of print but limited copies are available on their website.

    Thanks, Lillian, for sharing our YouTube presentation of the meaning of the candy cane with your “grandparent” network. We hope all grandparents will enjoy watching the video presentation with one or all of their grandchildren during the Christmas season. It will also give them some wonderful opportunities to talk about Jesus as they share their own faith with those precious grandchildren.

    Thank you also, Lillian, for all you have done and are doing to encourage us grandparents to pray for our grandchildren. God has given you a wonderful ministry that is sorely needed in our day.
    Many blessings on all your service in His Name,
