"JOE WHEELER IS
AMERICA'S KEEPER OF THE STORY"
-Dr. James Dobson, Focus on the Family
It’s hard to believe, but Christmas in My Heart is now the longest-running Christmas story series in America. For 13 years now a new collection of heart-tugging Christmas stories has faithfully appeared every fall. Somewhere along the way, we suddenly realized that collectively this Currier & Ives series (each book sports a Currier & Ives cover) houses the most significant collection of the world's most beloved Christmas stories that exists today. It is for this reason that at virtually every book signing we experience a run on the complete collection. And no one wants to be without the newest one!
It happened at a Barnes & Noble signing in 2003. A woman standing by my table asked me if I'd ever heard of a certain Christmas story that she'd been seeking for a very long time. I thought a minute, then pulled a book out of the stack in front of me, found a certain page, held it out to her, and asked, "Is this it?"
"Yes!" she almost shouted. "I must have this book!"
Minutes later she said, "I hate to ask you this–I'm almost certain I'm asking the impossible–but I've searched even longer for another story, one I first heard when I was a child. Have you ever heard of ---?"
I pulled another book out of the stack, found the page, and held it out to her. "This is too much," she said, struggling to retain her composure. "I've got to have the entire set, no matter what they cost!"
