Karen Kingsbury, author of 24 books, has warmed the hearts of millions with her tales of miracles. Gideon's Gift captures a Christmas miracle that touches a frail young girl and a gruff homeless man.
Eight-year-old Gideon Mercer loves to help people, but she has leukemia. When her illness goes into remission at Christmas, she is sure this miracle is a gift from God. So to celebrate, she and her father volunteer to serve meals at a mission for the homeless. She meets dirty, sullen Earl Badgett there, and although he refuses her friendship, she gives him a small gift. This one act will lead to a series of miracles that will change the rest of Gideon's and Earl's lives, and affect countless others.
A story of faith, charity, and rebirth, Gideon's Gift is sure to inspire all listeners with its message of love. John McDonough, critically acclaimed for his colorful narrations of Jan Karon's Mitford books, adds a special warmth to each word.
"Kingsbury writes quite well." (Publishers Weekly)

Heartwarming Gift of God's Love and Mercy
Yes, it is all about what is really important in life, and how the faith of a little child can change us all
That it shows us that we adults can miss a lot of what is most important, but innocent children, take God at His word . . . and when they do, LOOK OUT, that kind of faith moves the mountains
I listened to this book the same year that my own family suffered two terrible personal losses . . . it brought healing and joy to my soul.
