This reassuring letter from Santa guides the child in all of us through the rumors of falsehood to the amazing discovery that Santa is real and living as the Giving Spirit in everyone who plays the role of Santa. But Santa’s greatest gift is the knowledge that the Spirit of God that lived and was made perfect in Jesus is also alive inside each person as the Christ Spirit. The honoring of the Christ Child in each girl and boy is, in fact, the reason that Santa has been bringing gifts each year, just as the three wise men brought gifts for the Christ Child on that first Christmas.
“When I found out about Santa, I called my mom a liar,” says Whitecotton. “When I had kids myself I struggled with the notion of Santa Claus and the idea of perpetuating a fantasy that seemed to detract from the true meaning of Christmas. I wanted my kids to experience the awe and wonder of Santa Claus, but I needed to create a spiritual link between Santa and Jesus so that I could be Santa with integrity.”
Whitecotton is also the author of Child of Mine, Know This, an award-winning children’s book about the spiritual bond between parents and children. It has been called “a hallmark book in an age of emerging global consciousness”
