My favorite Christmas book this year was:
Christmas Fudge was written by one of my favorite authors,
Gerald Lund (Work and Glory series is a favorite!)
The book is about a World War II pilot/POW.
It is taken from his journal, and from his children.
The reason I love this book so much, is that I
know the main character!
Wendell Terry was in the bishopric when I was
American Fork 10th Ward
Evan Brady, Bishop
Bill Ellison, 1st Counselor
Wendell Terry, 2nd Counselor
(He was later a bishop, but our ward had been split)
Brother Terry would talk a little bit about his experiences
during World War II.
I loved that they included his original illustrations!
I was also able to teach 2 of Brother Terry's granddaughters
in 5th grade!
Jennifer & Lisa Terry
Their mother, Judy, was one of my all time favorite room mothers!
She made me the most darling pumpkin!
Every Halloween, I set it on my sectional!
It is now 35 years old!!!
