-Zwei Jungen und ein Weihnachtswunsch- ist eine Herzensgeschichte, die von einer engen Kinderfreundschaft zwischen dem 5-jährigen Jayden aus einer ex-europäischen Familie und dem 5-jährigen Takoda (Bedeutung: Jedermanns Freund) aus der Sioux-Familie erzählt. Bei einer Verabredung in einer geheimnisvollen Schule werden sie ein spannendes Abenteuer bestehen. Was werden sie dabei lernen? Welche Entdeckungen werden sie dabei machen? Und welchen ganz besonderen Weihnachtswunsch weckt dies in den Kindern? Ist der Weihnachtsmann wirklich der Weihnachtsmann? Und wo wohnt der Nikolaus? Über diese spannende Erkenntnis staunen nicht nur die Kinder. Auch den Leser wird dies sehr überraschen. Wird auch der Weihnachtswunsch in Erfüllung gehen? Fernab jeder kulturellen Vorstellung zeigt diese Geschichte, wie unbedeutend die Hautfarbe und Lebensweise unterschiedlicher Kulturen für eine Freundschaft sind. Viel interessanter ist, wie gleich die beiden Kinder in ihrem Herzen und menschlichem Wesen sind. Hier stehen nur die miteinander harmonierenden Menschen im Vordergrund. _______________________________________________________ -Two Boys And One Christmas Wish- is about a close friendship between the 5-year-old Jayden belonging to an ex-European family and the 5-year-old Takoda (meaning Friend To Everyone) belonging to the Sioux family. During a date at a mystical school, they pass an exciting adventure. What will they learn? What discoveries will they make? And what special Christmas wish will come up? Is Santa Claus really Santa Claus? And where does Saint Nicolas live? This insight does not amaze kids only. Readers will be surprised about it as well. Will the kids also get their Christmas wish fulfilled? Far away from cultural ideas, this fairy tale shows that skin color and different ways of life are not important for a friendship. It's much more interesting, however, to see how two hearts beat as one. Only the harmonizing people have priority in this fairy tale.

New York Times bestselling author SQuire Rushnell and his wife Louise DuArt share 21 brand-new and 9 classic true-life stories of extraordinary “Godwinks” at Christmastime, proving that what some thought was “coincidence” wasn't coincidence at all, but a supernatural “hotline” from God. Think back to when you were a kid and someone you loved gave you a little wink across the dining room table, like Mom or Dad or Grandma. You didn't say, “What do you mean by that?” You knew. It meant: “Hey kid, I'm proud of you.” That's what a Godwink is: a message of reassurance from above, directly to you, out of seven billion people on the planet, saying “Hey kid...I have you on my mind right now. I love you. You’re never alone.” A Godwink can be an unexpected connection to someone you love, a mysterious pathway to a life-changing opportunity, unanticipated income out of the blue, or an answered prayer that makes you say “wow”! Godwinks let you know that God is always extending you a tangible connection to Him, like a firm handrail on dark, wobbly stairs. Now, just in time for the holiday season, comes Godwinks Christmas Stories, a collection of astonishing true-life stories centered around Christmas that demonstrate how God has shown Himself in the lives of others. He’ll do the same for you. Husband and wife authors SQuire Rushnell and Louise DuArt remind you that Godwinks are like wondrous gifts left on your doorstep. Their aim with this book is to help you open the door and open your gifts of hope and encouragement.
