      Thank you, Stephen! You've been supporting this book from the very beginning--I remember you commenting on a blog post even before the Kickstarter launch! It's only happened because of you and lots of other wonderful people! I'm so excited that we get to ship this book to you!

      Thank you so much, Becky!! The generosity and love everyone has shown overwhelms me and brings me to tears. I think God has a plan for this book, and I'm SO incredibly thankful for everyone who is a beautiful part of it!

      Thank you, Doug! If this first launch doesn't make it (which is certainly looking likely), we'll re-launch in early January. We'll need to do that in order to give Ian time to finish the illustrations prior to sending them to the printing press in June so that everyone can have their book by November 2018! Thank you so much for your willingness to help bring this book to life!
      I did email your sister but I got an automatic reply that she's taking time off with her family until Jan 1. However, since we will probably need to re-launch, there may still be time to spread the word for the next campaign!
      I'll send you an email toward the end of this first campaign to keep you in the loop! I really appreciate you! Thanks for believing in this project and helping us make it happen!

I know that I'm not giving up if this first launch fails, so any advice or help you can offer would be HUGELY appreciated! Thanks, Doug!

      Also, if this should not fund, and I hope it does, maybe we can help you relaunch it later this coming year. I just found you a couple of days ago. Wish I could help more right now.

      I like this kids’ Advent book for not only the awesome and engaging illustrations and storytelling used, but also that it incorporates the whole story of Jesus. Please support this project!
