From Matthew 1: 18-25

Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost.

Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a public example, was minded to put her away privily.

But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost.

And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name Jesus: for he shall save his people from their sins.

Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying,

Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.

Then Joseph being raised from sleep did as the angel of the Lord had bidden him, and took unto him his wife:

And knew her not till she had brought forth her firstborn son: and he called his name Jesus.





Part of the theme of my series has to do with strangers coming to Karsten Field and finding it more of a home than the place they left behind them. There is a much more famous story about a family looking for someplace safe and from that, I borrowed some inspiration.

I want to wish all of my readers a Merry Christmas and a safe holiday season!

An Amish Home - Volume 5: Away in a Manger is available now


Come for a visit to Karsten Field with these Biblically inspired stories of home and family.

Best-selling author George Michael Loughmueller goes back to Karsten Field for a new serialized novel. Almost eight years after his journey began, Allan and Mary now have two children, Benjamin and Ruth, in their Amish Home.

In Volume 5 –Away in a Manger, The families of Karsten Field gather with their new English friends for a special Christmas celebration. Not everyone in this Amish Home feels the same about sharing such a significant day with outsiders, but Ben Abrim believes God brought them together for a reason.

The festivities are interrupted by the arrival of more strangers that bring a new understanding to the meaning of Christmas.
