The Christmas County Spelling Bee
How Do You Spell Love?
Created by Celeste Clydesdale
Arranged by David T. Clydesdale
Wonderful Counselor. Prince of Peace. Everlasting Father. Even a brief reflection on the names of Jesus brings power and strength to our faith. Dove award-winning writer Celeste Clydesdale has centered her newest Christmas musical, The Christmas County Spelling Bee, entirely around this theme. Set within the narrative of a lively spelling bee, this warm musical consists of nine delightful new songs, as well as the Michael W. Smith classic, "Emmanuel." As the musical unfolds, the contestants learn more about the character and nature of our Savior.
Worshipful, bright and enjoyable, The Christmas County Spelling Bee will engage the hearts of your kids and congregation this Christmas as it reminds us that "Jesus is the only name that saves."

This musical was a lot of fun to teach my church kids and a lot of fun to perform. Everyone in the congregation enjoyed the program. We performed it as the "sermon" and it was very appropriate for that. Great music!

Review by BB
What a great experience this musical was for our choir, our choir leaders, and ultimately for those who attended the program. I personally was inspired and challenged as we learned the names of God and how He ministers in our lives. I hardly had to teach the music - the kids just learned it on their own. So singable, so substantial, and , most of all, so succinct to the heart of who God is. Thank you for this wonderful experience. More, please. BH from Arkansas 2013
