What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I'm Dr. Chuck, a father of five fabulous kids and a practicing surgeon in Texas. I love telling stories to my kids (and hopefully some grandkids soon). I've learned lots from my wife, Joanna, who loves reading bedtime stories. I guess, her example rubbed off on me.
Christmastime, for many, is a season full of regrets and loneliness. This book is a way to encourage–both children and their readers–to see the opportunities their life obstacles bring. In this story, Fluffy learned to look beyond himself, see the bigger picture, and give what he could to the baby resting in the manger. And I think that's pretty good way for us to move forward in our life challenges.
I've learned from my patients through the years walking with them in their dark times. I've noticed the ones who thrive in their challenges are the ones who shift their focus off themselves. As a Christian, there's no better way to focus off ourselves than think about the baby in the manager.
This book serves to remind those who are hurting they can give what they have–to God and others–and experience purpose and meaning.
This is my second "real" children's book. The first, Climbing the Upside Down Tree, is about a story I heard while in Africa. It was illustrated by my oldest daughter, Georgia. It touches on unconditional love and performance which flows from relationship.
