All I Want for Christmas
Losing everything may just be the greatest gift of all.
James sells toys. He's a workaholic and he's made a very good living, even if his wife and four children don't appreciate it. Truth is, his marriage is falling apart and he barely recognizes his kids.
So when James's youngest daughter, 7-year-old Reba, asks God for a Christmas miracle to "fix" her family, something most unexpected happens—unexpected and horrible. The Christmas tree catches fire and the house burns down, taking with it all of their possessions.
One bad thing leads to another as rock bottom gives way to new lows and the family is sent spiraling down a dark and unfamiliar path. Reba wonders if God decided to give her the very opposite of what she prayed for.
Finally, separated and destitute, James and the family are left with absolutely nothing—nothing but a brand-new understanding of what's actually important in life.
Now James must rekindle his faith, learn what's truly important to him, and find a way to win his family back. If he can pull it off, there may just be that Christmas miracle waiting for him.

The Red Thread
Fear made him hide. Hope brought him back.
A lot has changed in the world in the many decades since Peter, a Holocaust survivor, settled into his new life in America. But meeting Peter, you'd never know it. The same furniture, the same black-and-white TV, the same rotary phone. Hidden away in the same tiny apartment in the same broken down New Jersey neighborhood, Peter is just fine with the nothingness of his life.
And then the dreams begin of his boyhood sweetheart, Mira, clear as the day he last saw her. Right before she disappeared without a trace from the camp at Theresienstadt Ghetto.
It's as if she is beckoning him to come find her. Begging Peter to venture out into a world he has hidden from all these years, to save her from a mysterious, dark force threatening to overtake her. And as his dreams become more real, and Mira's danger more imminent, Peter sets out on a most unusual adventure to save her and to re-engage with a world that has passed him by.
An old Chinese proverb states that lovers, destined for each other, remain connected through space and time by a red thread. As Peter is led across the globe in search of Mira, he'll finally confront the mysterious force that is closing in on her.
