Then all of a sudden we wanted to attend the Christian Heritage Conference in WA. We hadn't been to a homeschool conference in years, but God was leading our steps unbeknownst to us. We learned so much on the topic of family discipleship and really being active in discipling our children firsthand. After the conference, April was looking up more information on family discipleship and stumbled upon Books on the Path's website. For Sale? I wonder where the owners live? Well, out of the whole United States, they were 45 minutes from our home. We met with the owners, took time to pray and ....the rest is history.
To bring you up to speed, we have owned the business for less than 3 weeks, attended our first conference last weekend, and have had a whirlwind experience with learning all about websites, shipping, and credit card transactions. Now, we have lots of reading to do in order to acquaint ourselves with the 450+ titles we have! Oh, and we just purchased some new titles we came across at the conference that we are excited to read and hopefully recommend.
Even our 11 year old is on board. She helped with almost every transaction the first day of the conference, and is looking forward to reading and giving us her opinion on some books. She enjoys packaging up orders and doing some data entry. She loves pricing! We had many late nights together when we were getting ready for the conference!
So, check out our website at http://www.booksonthepath.com/ We have some changes in store, but for now we are just learning the business. The previous owners did a wonderful job with the business and we hope we can carry on the torch of bringing quality books to our customers.
