Elevenses with Lisa Episode 38 Show Notes
Join me for an inspiring conversation with Tom Hegg, author of the New York Times best-selling book “A Cup of Christmas Tea”. Genealogists from around the world gathered together for this special live show to share a cup of tea and hear a story of the importance of touching base with our fellow man. It’s a message we can benefit from any time of year, and especially in a year where we’ve spent more time apart than ever. It’s also a wonderful reminder of the importance of family and how our older family members hold a piece of our own history in them.
You’re in for a special treat: a personal reading of this classic book by the author himself. I promise you, it will lift your heart this Christmas and all year long.
A Cup of Christmas Tea, written by Tom Hegg and illustrated by Warren Hanson, is a simple, heart-warming story of how one man’s reluctant visit to an elderly aunt’s house renews his holiday spirit and brings him unexpected joy. The book’s Christmas 1992 debut on the New York Times Bestseller list after 10 years in print, was followed by three more years on the list and is unprecedented in publishing. To date this book has sold more than 1.5 million copies.
Charles Kuralt said, “I have a feeling that (this) little green book will be around for a long time, raising lumps in throats and smiles on faces. To it, I raise A Cup of Christmas Tea.”

I wrap up this episode with my personal story as 2020 comes to a close. My daughter was injured in a serious accident. But no matter what 2020 throws at each of us, prayer is our most powerful weapon. Thank you to my many friends who’ve prayed for our family. You encouraged us and I hope you find this story encouraging.
Wishing you all a happy and healthy new year!
