Christmas In My Heart Book 26

One of my most frequently asked questions is this one: “After all these years, have you about run out of top stories to choose from?”

No, I haven’t. When I first began, I had in my files around 50 Christmas stories I’d collected over the years. After Christmas in my Heart, vol. 3 came along, we moved into a buying mode that has never let up since. Today, we have a much more daunting problem: we’ve already archived several thousand candidates, and there are thousands more in our old books and magazines.

Sometimes, a certain story is passed over year after year—then here comes a year when God tells me: This is the year for this story! “Cherished and Shared of Old” has waited 26 long years!
