Remember that this Sunday is Father’s Day…celebrate your father, grandfather, and husband with a Printery House card and gift. Is your father or husband your “rock”—the guy who keeps you steady, solid, and on whom you can always depend? Give the gift of a St. Peter coffee mug filled with his favorite candies or specially flavored coffee and a gift card to a coffee shop.
A perfect gift for men, this handcrafted ceramic mug depicts the Apostle Peter, who up as a fisherman on Lake Genesareth, alongside his brother. In his gospel, Luke recounted the story of Peter catching so many fish that he fell down before the feet of Jesus and was told by the Lord, “Do not be afraid; from now on you will be catching men.” After becoming a disciple of Jesus, Christ gave Peter the name of Cephas, or rock, and said “…you are Peter and upon this rock I will build my church…”
Do you know a friend or family member who is on the long journey of recovery from hip or knee surgery? Perhaps you know someone who has tried to quit an addiction and is still struggling. The Abbey Christian Care cards in the “Recovery Collection” were created specifically to provide encouragement, comfort ,and support for these challenging times. The “Recovery Collection” offers cards that serve as reminders to friends and family that God is there each step of the way during recovery, whether it’s rehab through a 12-step program or during physical therapy after hip or knee surgery. Show loved ones you’re there for them…one step, one day, one prayer at a time.
We’d like to introduce you to two people you may have spoken with if you place a Printery House order by phone…Helen and Amy. In addition to taking phone orders when things get really busy, Helen is our Assistant Director and her daughter, Amy, is our Marketing Director. They make a dynamic mother-daughter team here at The Printery House. In her spare time, Helen creates beautiful quilts . Amy really has no spare time since she’s the mother of two adorable yet active little boys and is expecting her third child in late July. In preparation for this happy event, Grandmother Helen has already created two quilts for the baby…one in pink; the other in blue. We’ll let you know in late July whether Amy will be using the pink or the blue quilt!
