When Dr. Joe Wheeler wrote his first Christmas story 32 years ago; he didn’t realize God was setting him up to develop the longest running Christmas story series in America. Book 30; the last of the series; is a collection of Dr. Wheeler’s own stories from books 1–27; plus two new stories. A couple of years ago; a traumatic brain injury resulting from a stairway fall nearly brought the series to a halt with volume 27—but not before about a million Christmas books were ensconced in homes and libraries around the world. During his recovery; Dr. Wheeler has turned his eye toward the impact of stories on families. I've been rereading the stories God and I have cowritten over the years; belatedly discovering that they focus on love; marriage; and the family! Perhaps; God is orchestrating (behind the scenes) a spiritual rebirth of love; marriage; and the family—and this book could be part of it. —Joe L. Wheeler This collection promises to bring warmth and inspiration to your home; as well. Find a quiet; cozy corner and lose yourself in the radiance of the Advent season; one story at a time. Since we have now—after thirty long years—come full circle; it is fitting that I dedicate this final book in the Christmas in My Heart® series (and the series itself) to the remarkable woman whose voice dominates the soundtrack of my childhood. Who more could deserve this particular dedication than the woman who home-schooled me for fourteen of the first sixteen years of my life: my beloved mother—Barbara Leininger Wheeler.
