It’s neat to see God’s hand at work in making this production possible! Two years ago, I ordered a small, $24 calendar to give to my Mom for Christmas; people liked it, so I went a step farther the next year by putting together a custom design and printing it myself here at IBLP Headquarters. I got rid of them so fast last year that I decided to put a bit more time and effort into one this year. The result was a complete re-design printed on a Heidelberg 10-Color press, an upgrade that places the product in the professional side of the spectrum.

Initially, the cost for this upgrade was quite steep. However, for some reason I knew that it would be worth it. And God knew why. I was sitting in my office making the final tweaks on the calendar after working on it for over a month, when a friend stopped by to say hi. When he saw the proofs on my desk, he intently inquired what they were for. After some more questioning, he reveled to me a request he had brought to the Lord that very morning: he needed a large quantity of gifts to use as a thank-you to give to a group of donors. Perhaps this calendar was the answer to his prayers.

After some discussion, calculations, meetings with other people, more discussion, more meetings and lots of prayer, we finally came to  a conclusion that benefited all parties involved: my friend now had a gift to give to his donors and I got a drastic cut in the unit price. It was amazing! November SpreadMarch SpreadI had never personally experienced God work with such precise timing in such a supernatural way!

    That is absolutely great! The Lord never ceases to complete His work His way does He? I think this calendar is a beautiful work of art!

    Entrepenuership – I love seeing it at work. You motivate me James with the wise application of your God-given gifts.

    Way to go! Now when are you going to do some notecards/stationary? Or how about some framed art? 🙂
    It’s so neat to see the powerful combination of enterprenurship with the gifts God has given you and the desire to exhort the saints.

    You really have exhorted the saints James. Thank you for taking the time to write out your testimony, detailing the ways that God worked. “For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to shew Himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect towards Him” (II Chronicles 16:9)!

    James,
    Praise the Lord! What a powerful and wonderful testimony–God is so gracious to us, isn’t He? I can see the time and effort you put into these calendars, looking at the sample pages. They are beautiful! I will pray that God will continue to bless your effort.
    Faithfully-yours,
    Mrs. G

    We’re working on the “notecards, stationary and framed art.” Keep your eye on the online-store; it is quickly developing!
