Billy Stanley met his stepbrother Elvis Presley when he was seven years old. He and his younger brothers would celebrate Christmas at Graceland, but Stanley says every day with Elvis was like Christmas.
“The only difference between Christmas and everyday life with Elvis is during Christmas, we had a tree,” says Stanley. ”Elvis was the only person I ever met that truly tried to make―’Why can’t every day be be like Christmas’? He tried his best to make it that way.”
In his new book The Faith of Elvis: A Story Only A Brother Can Tell (written with Kent Sanders), Stanley shares untold personal stories and insights about the faith, kindness, and generosity of Elvis Presley.
