Twin Holy Birthdays

Happy Holy Days!  I hope that the celebrations you have already held were successful, and that the ones yet to come are inspiring. Tuesday and Wednesday are Holy Days, so we will be closed. The next trip to the Post Office will be Thursday morning. I will probably have a backlog of orders and  may not get them all out, (I will only have from sunset Wednesday till midnight to pack them all).  So if you are in a hurry, say so in the customer notes field and I will try to get your order out first. Orders sent [...]

Character Education Ideas From

Character Education Ideas From The miracle is not that roses are beautiful. The miracle is that we can tell that they are. One of the greatest gifts you can give your children is an appreciation of the incredible beauty of the world around them. And the best way to do this is to talk with them about the things that you find beautiful. Take the time to point out the flowers in the meridian of the highway, the way the light hits the trees in the late afternoon, the rainbow the oil makes in the puddle.  Be specific. [...]

Bicentenary 2019 – final update

With only two weeks to go before the Bicentenary, I've run out of several things, found one thing I thought I was out of, and reduced the price on three gift items by 50% or more. At this point, I'm essentially giving them away. Scroll down for details, or just go to our Bicentenary Page to see everything.  Just remember that items created specifically for the Bicentenary can't be returned.  Click on any of the links or pictures to see all of our Bicentenary materials, including party booklets, pens and  posters. I found a lost box of lapel pins, so I've lowered the price [...]

MultifaithCalendar 2020

The 12-month Multifaith Calendars are in. They are even prettier than last year's. They include all Baha'i Feasts and Holy Days, along with the celebrations of 13 other major religions. It is a beautiful and educational gift you can give yourself or anyone else interested in religious fellowship. Also, a reminder: The Bicentenary is in three weeks. It is best to allow one full week to receive materials by Priority Mail, so order now. I have not quite run out of the items listed below, but it is getting close. Here are just a few of the beautiful images in this year's [...]

Family Collection

Wendy Momen at George Ronald Publishing creates great compilations. She has just released a collection of four beautiful gift-book compilations focused on the family. Two are new editions of old favorites - To Be a Mother, and To Be a Father. To these she has added To Be Married and Family Worship. Scroll down for more details. To make it easy to choose, I'm offering a $4 discount if you buy all four at once. Give them all at once to a new couple, or spread them out over a maturing relationship. Either way, they make a wonderful collection. Click here to buy the whole collection. [...]

Bicentenary 2019 – update

The BAD news is that I have already run out of three of the most popular items designed to help you celebrate the Bicentenary. The good news is that many of the special items that I have left are now on sale - some as low as 50% off. Items you hoped to give to special guests you can now afford to give to lots of people. With five weeks to go, you have time to get everything in without running me ragged. Just remember that items created specifically for the Bicentenary can't be returned after October 1st.    Click [...]
