PHS graduate publishes book

GERMANTOWN — The Rev. Gary Wheeler, a 1979 graduate of Piqua, recently published “Hanging On In An Upside Down World,” a book about how to get through the events in life that turn one’s world upside down.

Pastor Wheeler said, “No matter what is happening in a person’s life, be it a cancer diagnosis or a death or loss of a job, Jesus has a way to take us from our worst to our best.”

Wheeler is the son of the late Jim and Beverly Wheeler, former pastor of Lockington United Methodist Church. He is also the son-in-law of Glenn and the late Carol Devers. Glenn was a long-time teacher in Piqua, while Carol worked for the Piqua Daily Call.

Wheeler is the pastor of Germantown United Methodist Church in Germantown.

The book is available through Amazon.
