Whose Manger Is This?
“This is my manger,” says each self-focused animal. Not-so-good behavior is shown as each one demands their way. Mary and Joseph watch as the animals experience heartfelt change. A surprise ending filled with worship and praise show what it looks like to give.
This is the story of Jesus birth but written from a whimsical and amusing perspective - the view the animals may have had of the creature in their hay bin!
I loved everything about this book! The character's names and how they react to each other was cool. Wonderful children's book to use at Christmas or anytime by families, Sunday Schools, and kid’s groups. This book brings out the true meaning of Christmas! Highly recommend.
Wonderful book with the true meaning of Christmas! I love the questions at the end to discuss with my grandchildren. I think target audience is 4-8 year olds, but my 2 year old loved it, too!

This book has a beautiful and important message, told in excellent rhyme and with a fun cast of characters. And the illustrations are so good! I'm excited to share this book with my children this Christmas season. I think it will be one of their favorites.

This is an adorable and valuable resource for any family with young children who easily get swept away with a me-centered focus over the holidays. Your children will gain insight in how to give of what they have with the best attitude to best honor the One we should honor on Christmas Day! This will become a holiday reading tradition for many years to come.

I absolutely love this book. It shows selfish behavior in various animals that children can easily relate to. The animals experience a heart change that leads them to experience the real reason for Christmas! A book that I will read to my grandkids over and over again!
With warm and enduring illustrations by Tatiana Kochan, this story reminds readers of all ages that Christmas isn’t about us. Christmas is about the baby who came from His throne in heaven to begin his early life in a borrowed manger.

I met Lisa Robbins in 2013, through her jail ministry, while incarcerated in Fentress County. I had no idea that over the next few years, through God, she would make such an impact on my life. Her faithfulness to consistently visit, pray, and share scripture with us inmates was an encouragement to me, as well as others. She prayed for years for my salvation. Jesus saved me in 2020, so today I am a born again Christian! To God is the glory.

It is a great privilege to know Lisa Robbins. She has been an acquaintance of mine for a number of years. Lisa always brings much wisdom to the conversation. She is easy, interesting, and personable to chat with.
When we began considering the Fentress Times, Lisa was one of the folks that came to my mind because I had read some amazing posts on her Facebook. I reached out to Lisa asking if she would be interested in working with our paper. We are thankful for the feedback we are receiving from our readers regarding her submission. Lisa’s writing conveys her love for the Lord, shares the good news of the gospel, gives needed direction, and provides spiritual education to those who read it. This relationship has certainly been a win for the Times!

Hello, I am Lisa Robbins and I live in rural Tennessee with my husband Michael. My role as a wife, a mother of three, and a nana to three, brings me great joy! I am a born-again believer, a faithful church member, a Bible teacher, and a writer. I believe in sharing God’s word with others because His truth holds the power to change lives. My favorite hobby is hunting vintage treasures and up-cycling some of my finds!
Most of my days are spent praying, reading, writing, exercising, cooking, cleaning, and spending time with my family, notably my grandchildren. I hold family in high regard as I believe it’s every wife and mothers greatest ministry.
God called me to write twenty years ago, but due to our three children in the home, a part time children’s ministry, and a full time job, my writing journey was delayed. I left my job five years ago to actively pursue my call to write.
