About the Book

It’s Christmas Eve, 1974, at the Nara household in Warren, Ohio. Gene and Maggie and their eight children are sitting in front of the fireplace waiting for their annual Christmas Eve tradition of singing “happy birthday” to Jesus and cutting the cake that was specially baked by Maggie in honor of Jesus’ birthday.

But a call from a student sends Gene on a trip to the high school where he is both a coach and a teacher. With his three daughters along for the ride, they see three young boys pulling on the front door of a drug store that’s obviously closed. The girls ask Gene why the little kids are banging on the door. The Nara’s discover the boys are searching for wrapping paper for their Mom. Gene and the girls are happy to help, and that’s where this Christmas story begins.

Inspired by the family’s true experience, Three Wise Guys and “His Cake” narrates a story that shares how one family celebrated the birth of Jesus and how they spread His tremendous love to the world around them.
