A treasury of old-fashioned Christmas stories.

In this 18th volume of Christmas in My Heart Joe Wheeler calls us to “restore the simplicity and sanity to a Christmas season that has lost its spiritual moorings.” It is a message for our times.

This Christmas we can return to a simpler holiday model: families getting together making Christmas gifts by hand giving gifts to those who can’t give in return (anonymously if possible) visiting the sick and lonely and above all letting Christ reign at the heart of all we do and say. The outstanding stories in this book will provide ample inspiration!

“If a child has never had to sacrifice for the good of others that child will most likely grow up to be spiritually stunted. . . . the fondest memories generally have to do with tough times.”—Joe L. Wheeler
