About the Author
SHAUNA LETELLIER weaves strands of history, theology, and fictional detail into a fresh retelling of familiar Bible stories on her blog and in her books. With her husband Kurt, she has the wild and hilarious privilege of raising three boys along the banks of the Missouri River where they fish, swim, and rush off to ball games.
Shauna has created a gift for all of us as we approach the celebration of the birth of our Savior. I was captivated by the rich, historical detail that deepened my understanding of this ancient culture, and wanted to read more than a day at a time. She’s done an incredible act of service for believers and skeptics alike, and I’m so grateful. ~ Jen Babakhan, writer for Readers Digest, author of Detoured.
With the same captivating storytelling found in her book Remarkable Faith, Shauna makes me feel like I’m reading the Christmas story for the first time. I’ve tossed dozens of Advent devotionals in the past for lack of substance, but Shauna’s beautiful book will be a resource I come back to again and again. ~ Glenna Marshall author of The Promise is His Presence.
“I am deeply touched by the way these familiar stories are masterfully retold to reach the heart. This beautiful writing speaks to the value of humble characters in the greatest Story of all time and fills me with hope that as I strive to capture the true meaning of Christmas in my family celebrations, I have this resource to return to.” ~ Emily Allen, mama of 6, founder of Kindred Mom and host of the Kindred Mom Podcast
Shauna’s warm invitation into the Christmas story fills my soul with wonder and delight. I love the way she brings each theme to life with details, nuances and colors I haven’t noticed before.” ~ Dorina Lazo Gilmore, (in)courage.me contributor and author of Glory Chasers.
My thoughts while reading this beautifully written retelling of the Advent events: If God is working on Elizabeth’s story to bring her His love out of her human feelings of disappointments and doubt, He is certainly working on mine too. If God allows Mary, the mother of his son, to feel shame and loneliness, He values me and my human brokenness too. I cherish Shauna’s words revisiting the faithful yet very human people and stories so important to God’s plan for sending his Son to earth. They will set your heart once again on Christ, not just Christmas.” ~ Tami
A Remarkable Advent caused me to carefully contemplate the details leading up to the birth of a baby that would forever change the world! God whispered to my heart through His word how much He loved me and is in every detail and circumstance of my life, drawing me ever nearer to my Savior.” ~ LeAnn
I was so blessed to be able to drown out the secular trappings of Christmas and tune in to SA Remarkable Advent. She made the characters of the Christmas story come alive in a fresh, vibrant way with application to life here and now. Thank you, Shauna!” ~ Ginny
I loved A Remarkable Advent! Shauna’s retelling of the Christmas story puts everyday flesh on the biblical characters and makes them easy to relate to.” ~ Pearl
A Remarkable Advent ‘humanized’ the stories of Christmas for me and fostered thoughtful consideration of the people who lived out such miraculous events in the mundane normality of everyday life. I was easily transported to that Biblical world and imagined myself being an observer and friend at that time. As I related those ancient events to my life today, it helped me understand and appreciate the miracles that abound all throughout the Christmas story. Those miraculous events happened to and were lived out by very normal people, a true testament to God’s incredible love for them and us.” ~ Kathie
