How would you respond if your children asked, “Is Santa a real person?” Do you keep the legend going, or do you tell the truth? One father’s response to this dilemma is found in the blog Modern-Day Joseph ( a site under the umbrella of AWANA children’s ministry).

Author Jeff Smith is editorial manager of Awana. He and his wife have two children and it was in response to their questions that he dealt with the Santa issue.

You will find his very thoughtful and interesting post entitled If Your Kids Ask ‘Is Santa Real?’ Tell Them the Truth.

SLICES OF MY LIFE are little slivers of my experiences. I have many interests and this blog is my way of keeping track of what I see and learn. Some of it brings a smile to my face, uplifts and encourages me, or makes me think deeply. I hope you enjoy what you read here as much as I enjoy writing it!
