Do You Know What I Know?

By Becky Melby


When a phone call from the obstetrician’s office goes to the wrong person . . .

Elizabeth Schmidt can’t figure out why her husband doesn’t seem excited about the news she’s sure he heard. Is he unhappy? Or is James cheating on her?

Pastor Jay Davidson is in shock. Bethany Schmidt, the woman he’s in love with, is pregnant. Should he walk away, or is God asking him to play the part of Joseph in real life and not just in the church Christmas program?

Bethany can’t figure out why Jay is acting so weird. Has he figured out one of the two secrets she’s keeping until after Christmas?

Can a ponytailed itinerant carpenter with a pet chicken help unravel the confusion?

Book Takeaway:

The overarching theme is remembering that the birth of Jesus is the reason for Christmas. In the words of my main character Jay: "Can't leave the manger empty." But this message comes through in the midst of a lot of miscommunication, assumptions and misunderstandings that create a sometimes funny, sometimes poignant story.

Why the author wrote this book:

This book is actually based on a true story. Back in 1973, the doctor bill for my pregnancy test went to my husband's aunt and uncle--who was also Becky Melby. But this Becky Melby was only 15! That story still comes up in our family. When I was brainstorming ideas for a Christmas novella, my husband asked if I could use that to spark a story line. From that came the idea of a phone call with pregnancy test results going to the wrong person.
