For His Honor$27.59Add to cart
But God had a plan for this young man’s life.
With the help of a devoted mother, Terry Johnson became a vessel of honor for his country and his Lord at the very highest levels of political power.
For His Honor, by Kay Rizzo, is the inspiring story of how God singled out a special young man to become the first handicapped person to serve in the President’s Honor Guard.
At times, however, the struggle to succeed was almost more than Terry could bear.
Determined and unrelentingly cheerful, he baffled his training instructors who tried their best to intimidate him into quitting. Yet Terry succeeded beyond the military’s highest expectations and won the hearts of his comrades for Christ by his living witness.
More than a compelling tale of a young man’s victory over incredible odds, it is also a story of faith- faith in what God can do for those who refuse to compromise His honor.”

In a world that oftentimes seems to have lost its moorings, where knowledge increases at such a dizzying rate that no one can keep up with it, it is good to back away from it all in islands of serenity-and ponder the deeper meaning.
Which brings each of us to the ultimate question: Where in all this nonstop chaotic frenzy of hype and self-promotion is God?
When we do this, inevitably our thoughts travel back, back, back in time to a lowly stable in a little hamlet called Bethlehem, inside which a baby was being born. And high overhead: a blazing star.
Christmas was also born that day.

It takes a lot more work to keep a marriage together for life than any bride and groom ever conceptualize. so many stress points over so many years that it’s a miracle any marriage survives.
Half of this year’s Christmas stories have to do with marriage, most of them tackling such related subjects as alienation, separation, misunderstandings, divorce, reconciliation, and, of course, love.
But with all these roadblocks barring the way to a marriage that lasts a lifetime (half of all marriages end in divorce), there are solutions to almost every problem. Kathleen Norris puts it this way: “Marriage is a job. Happiness or unhappiness has nothing to do with it. There was never a marriage that could no be made a success, nor a marriage that could not have ended in bitterness and failure.”

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

As we reach the proverbial age of “sweet sixteen” (young for a woman, but old indeed for a book series), it is appropriate to ask, “Why?” Today, when almost nothing lasts and fame itself supposedly expires in 15 minutes, here we have this simple little series of Christmas story anthologies that perversely refuses to die. Like the timeless Velveteen Rabbit, it becomes but more cherished as the years go by.

Even though Christmas in My Heart is now the longest-running Christmas story series in America, none of us take its continued survival for granted. Certainly Joe Wheeler does not. He and his wife, Connie, are determined that each collection will be the best yet. And that is a tall order- yet readers have been telling them year after year, “This is the best one yet!” From the very beginning they have worried, “What if we run out of the best stories?” However, so many heart-touching Christmas stories (new, recent, and old) have flooded in-and the Wheelers have unearthed many more in old magazines and books-that their supply of “five-tissue stories” is greater now than it was at the beginning! For every story that makes it, hundreds do not. Only those stories that deeply touch the heart are admitted into these pages.
