Author JR Simmons – Christmas Countdown Blitz, Day 4


JR Simmons lives in Northern Utah with his wife and 4 boys. He loves spending time with his family and coaching his kids in all of their different sports. He is an avid gamer and is very excited that his boys are picking up on his hobby. 
JR was recently introduced to triathlons and has since found that he loves the sport. Most nights he can be found either sitting down with a good game or hunched over his laptop writing.

An ancient prophet, witness to unspeakable sorrow, is called to deliver a message of hope.
A barren couple learns they will have a child in their old age, a child who will prepare the way for the coming Lord.
A virgin conceives a miracle.
As Zacharias goes about his duties in the temple, a visit from an angel brings unexpected but welcome news.
The same angel appears to newly betrothed Mary, and his words will change more than her life. His message will change the world.
From Hebron to Bethlehem to Nazareth, travel with the mother of the Savior of the world and the people she knew. Become part of the miracle and see the world where Jesus Christ was born.
We all know how the story ends, but in Lo, How a Rose, see how it all began.”
