A beloved holiday classic and a poignant story about the simple yet inspiring faith of a child.

This tender Christmas novella tells the story of Timmy O’Neil, a foster child who arrives at his new home with a very mysterious shoe box. At first glance, it’s nothing special―just an ordinary box with a red lid and the words Running Shoes printed on the side. But Timmy carries it with him wherever he goes, and when people ask him what’s inside, he smiles and says, “Just things.” As Timmy settles into his new, loving home, he remains unwilling to share the secrets of his shoe box. Until the beauty of the church Nativity pageant inspires him to open his heart and give the most precious gift of all. Includes all-new advent devotions that evoke the spirit of the season.
