Phil & Karen believe owning this bookstore / coffee shop to be a ministry as well as a business. They’ve seen many changes in the industry after 25 years – but the needs of the people are the same. People seeking to know more about the Awesome God we serve, people needing hope in difficult times and people looking for ways to encourage others they come in contact with. Phil and Karen have 5 kids as well as a beautiful daughter in law (Kylie) and son in law (Tim).

Howdy! (: My name is Rachel. I am a God-fearing, natural red head that came from a small town in Ohio. I am currently a student at GCU studying Special Education. I enjoy Disney, art, loud music, fast roller-coasters, and spending time with my family and friends. I live for God and can't wait to see what he will do with me! I gain happiness from giving and making others around me happy. On that note, I would love to make you a drink! (:
My name is Tenisha Grant and I currently work as a preschool teacher. I have a passion for working with children and a heart to serve those around me. Some of my greatest loves are traveling, reading, music, and food! I have been friends with Justin and Kylie Kary for a few years and am thrilled to be working alongside them serving the community.
