Mandie and her friend Celia are excited to leave school for Christmas break. Mandie's mother promised her a big surprise for Christmas, and Mandie can't wait to discover what it is. When her mother and Uncle John are delayed due to weather and can't get home until Christmas Eve, Mandie becomes even more anxious. But excitement changes to anger when her mother tells the surprise: Mandie is going to have to share her mother with a new baby.
Characters pray, ask God for help and are healed. Mandie thanks God for her answered prayers. They attend church on Sunday, and Uncle John reads the story of Jesus' birth from the Bible on Christmas morning.
