Merry Christmas

Fear not: for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy… For unto you is born … a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.

Luke 2:10

To the Premier Family:

It’s been just over three years now that Joan went to Heaven.  Oh, how I miss her.  Did you know that she prayed for Premier and all of you daily?  I do too!  God really does answer prayer.  One of the greatest answers to prayer was when God gave me Joan as my wife.  I prayed for a family and a home.  It was Joan’s dream to have a large family too.  God has been so good to the Horner Family, and He really blessed me with five great children, 16 awesome grandchildren and 7 wonderful great-grandchildren with one more on the way!  Every Christjamas we get together to play games, have dinner and remember the reason for Christmas.

If I could say one thing that was most important in my 89 years – that He sent His son, Jesus, to die on the cross and that He rose again!  Jesus is the reason we celebrate Christmas.  I want you to know that what God has done for me He can do for you if you believe in Him.  Yes, I can tell you with certainty that God does have a plan for all of you.  As a young lad, there were times when I had no hope.  I did not always act as I should and had a very poor childhood.  School was not a place where I excelled.  In fact, one of my teachers told me I’d never go anywhere, and in class, he would skip me when all others were called to participate at the board.  I know God sent one teacher to advise me, and under his counsel, I changed my direction in school.  Out of this came my first job as an office boy at LaFrance Textiles.  Changed my life.

Wow, it still amazes me when I think of what God has done and where He has brought Premier.  No, we don’t know what lies ahead, but I do know that my Lord is always there and will guide us.

Merry Christmas!  Enjoy your family time and all the trimmings.  Let’s not forget to rejoice and thank God that He loved us enough to send His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him will have eternal life.

“Glory to God in the highest and on earth, peace, goodwill toward men.”  Together, let’s keep the Christmas spirit for 2014.

God bless you and Merry Christmas,

Andy

  6. As I sit and read Andy’s message it brings tears to my eyes. So many people want an easy life but be real, life isn’t easy. As a fairly new jeweler, I am becoming aware of just what a remarkable family (Premier) that I belong to. I look forward to the day of meeting the Horner family personally. May God continue to bless Premier and all those that work so diligently for us the jeweler.

  8. I wish all happiness to one and all… As I sit here by myself with tears in my eyes I wonder why I was chosen to be alone. I know I have made mistakes alone the way but I truly believe I did the best I could at the time. I feel my family pulling away from me and I try to hold on but I know time is precious to us all. Please pray for me

  11. Dear Andy,
    I think you are doing so well. So proud to know you and do my little part in Premier…! In fact, this year $3,000 apprx. Was raised for the Make a Wish children…all because of your role modeling…it was fun and I would have otherwise had no tool to use to make it happen…Losing my Mother 10 Years ago on a holiday makes me so know more how you feel during these times….Thank you for YOU! Love, Cathy Huffington Hall (Dedo-Draper group, dallas)

  15. Dear Mr Horner and Family,
    My name is Deborah DeFreitas and I am a new jeweler with Premier Designs as of September 2013. I have worked with a few great companies but Premier Designs, tops them all. I thank you and Joan for creating such a wonderful company, a company that walks with GOD which is difficult to find. I knew I found the opportunity I was looking for when I attended my first ever Premier party and saw your catalog. The cross necklaces got my attention and the fact that you give back to so many people in need. I always look forward to reading your inspirational quotes.Thank You and may God continue to Bless you and your family in the new year.
