Some of you may have noticed that our online store is temporarily under construction while we make some adjustments. When our new store opens, you’ll find some changes. After much prayer, Harold and I believe that God is leading us to make some adjustments to our ministry. First, we are discontinuing all products that aren’t exclusive to Daughters 4 God. We will continue to carry our self-published titles such as Lady Day, The Gift of Purity, the audio products, and our sterling silver jewelry. It is impossible for us to offer the other products at prices to compete with Amazon or CBD. At this point, I’m planning to review new products for raising daughters, but we will not be offering them for sale. Fewer products mean less time managing inventory and more time for writing and for ministry at our local church.
Second, we anticipate that our new store will have audio and pdf downloads priced less than a hard-copy product. Some of you have asked for a “Cleaning Game” download so you don’t have to pay shipping. We think that’s a great idea and we’re working to make that a reality. We’re also hoping to add more audio teachings as well as some other books that are in development.
Third, we will not be traveling to homeschool conventions as we have in the past. (We still haven’t decided about MACHE for 2011…) It has become more difficult for us to travel together. Harold took on a new role as Associate Pastor last October which means he can miss fewer Sundays, and the oldest two will be in college in the fall but still living at home. Yes, we could leave Harold and our two college students behind, but that’s not what the Moore family does. We’re a team and we minister together.
We believe that this is God’s plan for this season. We will still look for opportunities to share our heart and our experiences, but just a little closer to home. That’s a tough one, since we’ve made so many friends over the years. Thank you for all of your encouragement and support.
Ruth Bell Graham once saw a sign along the road and asked that it be epitaph. Her tombstone reads: “End of Construction. Thank you for your patience.” I suppose I feel the same way, like I’m always under construction. There’s another flaw, another weakness, another insecurity that my Creator lovingly reveals to me. But I’m so grateful that He also shows me His complete sufficiency for every area of my lack. "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” (2 Cor. 12:9) “Being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.” (Phil. 1:6) His construction process is not always easy or pleasant, but always necessary and beneficial. Our construction, both personally and for D4G, continues but thank you for your patience.
