Joyeux Noël, Friends!
It’s Christmas morning… A peaceful, joy-filled, the-kids-will-soon-wake-and-tear-into-presents morning. Are you doing what I’m doing — sneaking around in the kitchen before anyone else is awake, bumbling around while trying to make coffee in the dark? I try to rise before everyone else on Christmas (which is difficult, because kids wake so early). But I love the stillness of this morning. I love the opportunity to reflect and have a few peaceful moments focused on my Savior with blessed family time to follow.
Today we have a quick Video Café message from author and friend Rose McCauley for our final author coffee break of 2015! (Don’t forget to stick around to the end of the coffee break for our usual #Giveaway… )
If you’re new to the Video Café, Click HERE to see what it’s all about. But if you’ve been here before, you know how it works. Grab your Christmas coffee and let’s hear from Rose !
Merry Christmas — Welcome to the Café, Rose! It’s nice to have our first message from an author in Paris (KY, that is). We’re delighted that you’ve joined us this Christmas morning! Where is your cafe and what are you drinking?
We’re awake early on this Christmas morning, sitting with you. We’d love to know what Scripture is ministering to you right now. Can you share a quick devotion moment with us?
It’s Christmas, so we wondered: do you like to write (or read) about Christmas?
And since 2016 is just about here… Can you share what’s up next for you (and us, as readers!) in the new year?
And because we like fun stuff here in the cafe – what’s something your readers might not know about you?
Thanks again for being my Christmas morning guest, Rose. I’ll enjoy having that cup of tea (or my favorite – coconut mocha coffee) in Nashville for the 2016 ACFW Conference. Hugs, lady!

Rose is pleased to offer an e-copy of Home for Christmas (7 Christmas novellas) to one reader in the cafe. This Giveaway is for US residents only, and runs from 12/25/15 – 12/31/15. Enter by adding a comment to answer this question (during the giveaway dates):
- Rose joined us from Paris (Kentucky) today. Most of my friends know Paris is the one city I most want to visit someday. If someone was going to gift you a trip anywhere on the map, where would you most want to go? (Or would you rather stay home for Christmas?)
We’ll draw one name and announce the winner on this post 12/31/15. And stick around, because we’ll have more author friends in the Café in 2016. In the meantime, stop by the Freebies & Fun page — we’ll keep you up-to-date on the active #Giveaways we have running all the time!
With JOY & coffee talk,
