The Christmas Shoes

Sometimes, the things that can change your life will cross your path in one instant-and then, in a fleeting moment, they're gone. But if you open your eyes, and watch carefully, you will believe ... Robert is a successful attorney who has everything in life-and nothing at all. Focused on professional achievement and material rewards, Robert is on the brink of losing his marriage. He has lost sight of his wife, Kate, their two daughters, and ultimately himself. Eight year old Nathan has a beloved mother, Maggie, whom he is losing to cancer. But Nathan and his family are building a simple yet full life, and struggling to hold onto every moment they have together. A chance meeting on Christmas Even brings Robert and Nathan together-he is shopping for a family he hardly knows and Nathan is shopping for a mother he is soon to lose. In this one encounter, their lives are forever altered as Robert learns an important lesson: sometimes the smallest things can make all the difference. The Christmas Shoes is a universal story of the deeper meaning of serendipity, a tale of our shared humanity, and of how a power greater than ourselves can shape, and even save, our lives.

  • "Nathan Andrews mother is terminally ill and cash strapped, but his family is very close and loves one another. Wealthy Robert Layton is a workaholic on the brink of losing his sweet family he unwittingly neglects. When Robert and Nathan cross paths on Christmas Eve, Nathan is collecting bottles and cans, so he can purchase an expensive pair of shoes for his mother. Seeing the closeness of the relationship that Nathan has with his family, Robert begins to think that maybe he still has a chance to change the relationship within his own family."
