There, Jennifer suddenly realizes that Jesus was King of Heaven before He came to earth as a tiny baby, and Christmas begins to mean a lot more to her than ever before. Then, when Jennifer finds herself short on time and money for her Christmas shopping, she comes up with a very special solution--one that pleases her family far more than she could have hoped.
