Since we began the Blog back in the Summer, we have been so blessed to have so many of you join us here. We began the Blog as an online ministry outreach of our Christian Gift Store, Pastor Appreciation Gifts, which we have been operating, online, for several years.
The idea was to never have the Blog “go commercial,” as a vechicle just to send visitors to our business, and we won’t ever do that.
However, we realize that when we meet new people, the talk always turns to the business, because that’s such a part of “us.” People always ask “What do you do?” and so forth. We are proud to have been allowed the privilege to serve customers all over the world. Our business motto has always been from Genesis 12:3, that “I will bless them that bless thee.”
Our goal has always been to bless as many people as God will allow. That’s really it: To bless, inspire, and encourage.
My Mom used to always say that “God will honor those who honor Him.”
Well, that’s where we got our business logo from:
Most people know us as the source for our “Mini-Pulpits,” which are in the shape of a real pulpit, with exclusive plates on both the top and the front/stem of the Mini-Pulpit. A sample of these are pictured here:
Perhaps the first thing people think of is “Why, Pastor, Why,” which is also only available through Pastor Appreciation Gifts. In fact, “Why, Pastor, Why” was the initial reason for the first website. We’ve just added new products along the way.
It’s still the “Flagship” product, and always will be, as we were instructed from the beginning. When we first published Pastor Appreciation Gifts, there were a very few website searches for “Why, Pastor, Why.” Last month, 1,830,000 searches were made for the term, “Why, Pastor, Why.”
We are just beginning, and have many new products to develop as we go, which we will.
We are honored to have you visit our Blog, and it is a real privilege to serve you over at Pastor Appreciation Gifts. Please know that we are working on the website constantly, and we look forward to serving you in the future.
Blessings to you, your family, and your Pastor,
Ted and Carol
