Diane was already a very busy woman. On top of all of her many commitments, she cares for her ailing husband. As it became harder for the couple to attend church, they began to watch sermons on TV instead and Diane got to the point where she needed a new Bible. She could have ordered one online of course, but she wanted the experience of choosing one for herself.
The problem was that there were no Christian bookstores in her area. God began to lay it on her heart that she needed to open a book store. Already wishing that there were more hours in the day for the things she had to get done, Diane tried to convince herself (and God) that maybe she wasn’t the right person for the job. But God was vehement. SHE needed to open the store.
And, so she did. In June, His Word Found Here opened its doors in Ballard. Diane’s vision was to provide a place where everyone feels welcome to come and shop for their own Bible. A place where they can buy a cup of coffee while they turn pages, examine covers, and choose the translation they feel most comfortable with. A place where guests are surrounded by a cozy, warm and welcoming atmosphere.
And, that is just what His Word Found Here has turned out to be. The Bibles are right inside the front door and the staff are ready to help out whether it’s your first Bible or your tenth. Make no mistake, this isn’t a huge corporate enterprise, this is a ministry. And, we are all invited to be a part of it.
On Friday, September 5th, His Word Found Here will host one of their first events; a book signing/breakfast with Tracie Peterson and Kimberley Woodhouse! Yes! You heard me right! For $18 you will receive Tracie and Kimberley’s new book: All Things Hidden, have your book signed AND be provided with a lovely breakfast! Plus, you’ll get to peruse this beautiful new bookstore. Oh, and I’ll be there too. Call the store at (206) 258-2363 or stop by for tickets.
So, come out and join me in supporting this lovely new store. Seriously, when do you get the chance to shop in beautiful surroundings and meet two renowned Christian authors at the same time? I can’t wait to meet you! Plus, ENTER TO WIN 2 tickets!
PS: Read my blog entitled: Potholes to Christ to hear about my first experiences with finding a Bible. I needed a shop like His Word Found Here!
