In many engagements, I met Mr. Samuel J. Butcher in his resort in New Washington. For one, I was present at the inauguration of the chapel he personally supervised to be constructed. But in grand events like this, you would notice the simplicity of a man adored by his followers around the world.
Sam, the man behind the Precious Moments Collection now on display at Jojo’s Christmas Cottage, is “blessed with an active mind, drawing inspiration for his artwork from scripture, everyday experience, songs, or sayings. He is continually alert of life’s situations, never knowing which will spark an idea!” (www.preciousmoments.com)
