Every Gift is Valuable, Share Yours! Geraldine Ann Marshall, Spider’s Gift: A Christmas Story

Of course, there were Mary and Joseph, the shepherds, and the wise men to celebrate the birth of Baby Jesus. We often picture the large animals that would’ve been a part of this joy: the sheep, perhaps a cow and a donkey, maybe even a few chickens. But what about those small animals that might also have lived in the stable? Did you ever think that a cricket, a honeybee, and an ordinary, orb-weaving, brown spider such as you might find in your own gardens could have been there for all of the excitement? I did. I am the author of Spider’s Gift: A Christmas Story. I love all kinds of animals (just ask my dachshund dog, Jackaroo, who is keeping me company while I write to you today)—even those sometimes forgotten or misunderstood small, but often helpful, of God’s creatures, such as crickets, honeybees, and spiders. Because of my love and interest in animals, in college, I studied zoology (the study of animals). I also love stories and kids (so much that I even had two daughters of my own) and so I combined my love of animals, stories, and kids into a career of writing books for children and some books for adults too. Almost every story I write, whether fiction or nonfiction, has an animal in there somewhere!

Even though my daughters are grown up now, I am still writing a Christmas story for them every Christmas. I decided that Spider’s Gift would be a good story to share with children everywhere. I am so happy that Pauline Kids wanted to publish Spider’s Gift and that a wonderful illustrator, Rebecca, was found to draw the pictures. Making a book requires the gifts of many people to make it happen and bring it to you. Remember that you, the readers, are the most important people in the life of a book! Knowing that people are reading her book is the best gift a writer can receive! Spider found that she too had a special gift to give Baby Jesus—a gift given with her love. I hope that you have as much fun reading Spider’s Gift as I have had writing it and now sharing it with you.

Spider’s Gift started out as one of the Christmas stories I write each year for my own children. When my first daughter was a year old, I decided that she should have a special story every year for Christmas. Soon, I had a second daughter and so there have been many years of stories.

Jesus Blesses the Children Luke 18:15-17 Once when Jesus was teaching, some mothers

But Jesus called the children over to him. “Let them come,” he said. “Don’t send them away.” The children gathered around Jesus and he smiled at them, touching their heads and blessing them. “The kingdom of heaven belongs to people who are like these children. If you don’t accept the kingdom of God as a child, you won’t be able to get into it.”

brought their babies and small children to him. They wanted Jesus to touch and bless their children. Jesus’ followers saw all the children going near Jesus. They didn’t think this was right. They thought it was more important for Jesus to talk to the grown-ups and answer their questions. They thought Jesus was too busy teaching to be bothered by the children. So they started telling the children to leave Jesus alone. They told the mothers to take them away.

Discussion

Reflect:

Jesus was giving us an important lesson when he blessed the children. He was teaching us that all of us, even grown-ups, have to become like children in order to be his true followers. We must trust and obey God as little children trust and obey their parents. We must not try to act more important than others do. It’s important to love God our Father as completely as a little child loves his or her mother and father!

Questions:

In this Gospel passage, Jesus blessed the children and gave us a very important lesson. Who is this lesson for? What is Jesus asking each of us to do? Sometimes it can be difficult to be a child. Can you think of some times when you missed out on something because of how old you are? Jesus wants all people, young and old, to come to him, to trust in him, and to have faith in him.

An Interview with Sherry Weaver Smith, author of The Wolf and the Shield and Search for the Hidden Garden

Why did you write about Saint Patrick?

Saint Patrick shows us how to have the courage to care for others. He escaped slavery in Ireland and returned to his British home. But after hearing a call from God, he went back and shared stories of Jesus with the Irish people—even though he was scared. It’s easy to be scared. But like Kieran in The Wolf and the Shield, you can make a choice to care for something. With St. Patrick’s help, Kieran chooses to protect a wolf pup and has many adventures. Perhaps reading about St. Patrick can give you new courage to follow Jesus. Why did you write about Saint Thérèse of Lisieux?

Have you ever been asked to use your talents to do something new? You may love to sing solo, but one day the music teacher might ask you to sing a duet. That’s how I felt when my publisher wanted me to write a new story about Saint Thérèse—a saint I didn’t know well! But when I started to read about her life, it was like meeting a new friend. Saint Thérèse was kind to everyone—especially those who weren’t her best friends. So I wrote a story about a girl, Charlotte, who doesn’t act like Thérèse, who decides not to share her discovery of a hidden garden with another girl. This choice causes problems that Charlotte (who is otherwise very caring) has to fix… with a little help from Thérèse! Thérèse shows Charlotte how, just like flowers in a garden, everyone is different—because God created them that way. Imagine if we all remembered that every day!

What are some ideas for students who want to start creative writing?

For me, the best part about creative writing is finding ideas! Here are some ways that I have fun while writing. Maybe they will help you: 1. Carry a 3x5-inch blank notebook or your phone to record your ideas. I put a sticker on the front that inspires me for my story. 2. Collect pictures of things that you like for your story: from newspapers, magazines, your own photos, or online. I gathered a lot of images of flowers and trees when I was writing Search for the Hidden Garden. You could photograph something at the mall that your main character might wear or do. 3. Line up a playlist or find a good radio station. Listening to music helps me imagine my characters in their world. When I was first writing, I lived in bright sunny California, surrounded by brown hills. But in The Wolf and the Shield, Kieran protects his tiny wolf pup in a dark oak forest. So to better imagine him, I found lots of songs and put them together into something like a movie soundtrack to echo his landscape. 4. Pray. I always ask the Holy Spirit to guide me in creating a saint story that teaches how to follow Jesus. Whether you want to write, create art, make an invention, do sports, or care for someone else, God has given you something special to share. When you pray, God will guide you in each word you write or step you take. 7
