Giving my writing “children” back to God in overflowing love and gratitude
Although I haven’t had the privilege of being a mother, Lord God has graciously enabled me to give birth to spiritual creations and launch them into the world for his kingdom purposes. In response, I echo Hannah’s love-filled offering: “I prayed for this child, and the Lord has granted me what I asked of him. So now I give him to the Lord. For his whole life he will be given over to the Lord” (1 Samuel 1:27-28, NIV).
Have you ever wondered what it could have been like in heaven one night before Christmas? Travel back into eternity past and listen as God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit have a conversation about giving the greatest gift to all people.
Within an hour, experience a wonder-filled journey from God’s heavenly throne to the creation of the universe; fall of Satan and angels; Garden of Eden; birth, death, resurrection and ascension of Jesus Christ; arrival of the Holy Spirit; and Christ’s victorious second coming to sovereignly reign as King of kings and Lord of lords.
Author Jennifer Lynn Heck skillfully weaves her imaginary story with passages from the Bible. The combination creates a memorable journey, discovering the grace-filled heart of God and his plan for rescuing people in every generation.
The timeless message of A Heavenly Conversation One Night Before Christmas extends throughout the entire year. It is thought provoking and heart stirring. Adults, teenagers and older children will enjoy this beautifully illustrated gift book.
After the main story, there is a bonus section called “Story Snapshots in Pictures.” The book’s design provides flexibility and interest for individuals at different faith stages, including people who may be seeking God.

Jennifer was born with cerebral palsy. That hasn't stopped her from taking many leaps of faith!
From 1993 to 1996, Jennifer made seven tandem skydives. One of her leaps of faith was at 15,000 feet.
She adopted the nickname JJJHeck. It captures both her season of skydiving and her joyful personality. JJJ stands for "Joyous Jumping Jennifer."
Jennifer attended an
evangelism class at her church in the early 2000s, taught by one of the pastors.
He encouraged people to create a mission statement for their lives.
The Holy Spirit led Jennifer to passionately write and live this:
"My mission in life is to break barriers between people and build bridges to God. Everyone needs to know Jesus Christ, grow in their faith and use their God-given gifts for his glory."
