Christmas In My Heart Book 21
This product qualifies towards the free shipping offer.
When Christmas In My Heart first came out, everyone, including Joe Wheeler himself, assumed it would be the only book with that title. By the time Christmas in My Heart 11 was released, it was already in uncharted waters-and it was felt that perhaps it might live until 12. Indeed, no one imagined it would continue beyond volume 16. Filled with stories of inspiration, miracles, and Christmas cheer, Christmas in My Heart has become a miracle in its own right, and with this volume, it turns 2.
It's truly a miracle in today's publishing world for any book series to last five - much less twenty years! Yet this is what Christmas in My Heart has done. No one is more surprised at this than Joe Wheeler; he attributes the series' stubborn refusal to die to being a God-thing. Somehow there is something about each year's collection of stories that so speaks to hearts everywhere that "completists" (those who have all the books in the series) cannot even imagine facing a new Christmas season without a new collection to feed their souls.
In a world where society appears intent on stripping the Christmas season of the divine reason for its very existence, spiritually based Christmas stories such as these may provide a refuge from electronic strangulation and an opportunity to read aloud heart-tugging stories incorporating values worth living by to children, teens and adults of all ages.
Since we become our favorite stories, the right or wrong story-choices will inevitably determine our eternal destinies. - Joseph Leininger Wheeler.
