Right-click, Save them and spread the Good News!

Shopper"When it comes to retailing, there are basic display techniques that apply whether you are selling records, rowboats, bats and balls, or gift items and collectibles. When you're in a bind about what to do next, consult the basics, and they'll provide a road map for changes." - Sharon Leicham, Country Business Magazine

Welcome Jane

I'd like to welcome Jane DesRosier as a new contributing artist and author at Faith Folk Cafe. She is joining Mystele and I and I can't tell you how happy I am. (See the fabulous article and interview below that Mystele wrote to learn more about Jane). Jane is "prayerfully" joining and I'm so thankful for her heart, as I am with Mystele's. A true desire to serve the Lord and to commit to serving others on this website is what we are seeking. Please pray for us as we attempt to create a place where you will be blessed and Christ will be magnified.
If you would like us to feature your artwork on Faith Folk, please email Mystele or I, we'd love to do an interview with you.
We hope you'll tell your friends about us and again, pray for us.
If there is anyway that we can serve you or better pray for you, please let us know.
Welcome Jane~
