Overview

Dea Lacey is on the run. Scared and alone, she has to protect her endangered nephew. If she can find Garrett's father, perhaps he'll keep the boy safe and learn to love the child she'd trade her life to keep.

Jesse McTavish has lost his family. Abandoning his faith, the seeds of destruction are sown. As he struggles with grief, the last thing he needs is a woman showing up with a child who's the mirror image of his dead son. But he can neither ignore nor reject the woman and child who threaten to break through the protective shield he's built around his heart.

Through the ensuing storm of pain and loss, Christmas teaches Dea and Jesse about faith and forgiveness.

Sanctuary may be what we ask for, but God gives us so much more.

    This is a warmhearted story of scarred souls who seem to meet up by chance in an abandoned church / farm property. Dea and her seven year old nephew, Garrett, have run away from a scary situation in Florida, involving her nephew's birth mother. Gratefully, Dea's aunt has left her this church property in Oklahoma, far away from their troubles--Dea hopes and prays. It is also the hometown of Garrett's birth father, Jessie, who used to pastor this abandoned church. But Jessie is living with the grief of the accidental death of his wife and young son, Alex. Dea hopes to have Garrett's father claim and protect his son, but he has no idea that this child had ever existed.




    Grief has hardened Jessie's heart to God, life, and love, and when he meets the child who looks so like his dead son, Alex, he finds many ways to avoid any contact with these new arrivals. Things get worse when he hears Garrett talking about his imaginary friend, 'Alex', who seems so like his dead son. But, when Jessie realizes that Garrett is his actual son too, he meets his responsibilities, even if he's unwilling to open his heart to the boy, and his beautiful, gentle, and compassionate aunt--'Mommy' Dea.




    Dea does all she can to make ends meet. Jessie's help is appreciated, but soon she has two more 'guests' who want 'sanctuary' within the church also---a lone pregnant 18 year old, followed a few days later by a homeless army vet who just wants to work around the place for room and board, followed by a too thin dog, and her two pups. This group develops into a kind of family of their own, with Dea and Garrett.




    The Biblical quote--" They have made a sanctuary for me, and I will dwell among them." (Exodus 25:8) becomes a basis for this touching character and faith based story of love, forgiveness, romance, and the healing spirit from the innocence of a young child's faith in God and the goodness of those friends and animals surrounding and protecting him.
