Open Invitation: Visit Our Pastor Appreciation Gifts Store

Hi All:
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:
Screen PrintMost 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:
minipulpitsPerhaps 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.
Ruby MarbleIt’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.”
groupWe 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

Guest Post:vWHAT WILL BE YOUR LEGACY? – THE S. G. ELTON EXAMPLE

“Investing in people is a costly and risky business; in fact it’s plain hard work. But as I have come to know that’s where the real joy and fulfillment in leadership comes from. Only your deposit in people’s lives is what will endure after all is said and done.”

Excellent!

 

How Should Christians Feel Towards their Pastors, and Vice Versa?

What a great title for an article:
A short article, highlighting quote from Calvin:

How Should Christians Feel Towards their Pastors, and Vice Versa?.

Guest Post: “A LOVE NOTE TO MY WIFE!”

“I think if we make appreciation a regular occurrence in our relationships, especially the significant ones – our spouses, our children, our parents, and our close friends – the quality of those relationships will increase …”

A LOVE NOTE TO MY WIFE!.

What a great way to start the Second Half of 2012! To tell those we appreciate … that we appreciate! Think about this: What better way for us to be appreciated?

 

Guest Post: “Pastoral Priorities”

Many pressures and demands pull on the pastor’s time. A full-time capacity does not allow enough time to address them all, though I wish it did. Be wise and diligent with whatever time you are given …

Pastoral priorities.

We enjoyed this one … especially loved the comments from other readers!

 

Guest Post: “Pastors: Recharge Your Batteries!”

“I suggest that if the leader is not adequately concerned for his/her own family and well-being, s/he will not last long enough in life to be able to last long in ministry. “

Pastors: Recharge Your Batteries!.

This is a very thought-provoking article, and certainly gives us all reason to think about how we view our Pastor’s humanity and service … and the costs to be counted … by all parties.
