David and Alice were raised in Christian homes. The parents in both of their homes were dedicated Christians who sought to draw close to the Lord. Their parents also believed in and tried to follow God's personal leading in their lives even if this at times meant making decisions that the people around them did not always understand. Seeing these decisions of their parents and the blessed results of following the Lord's leading led David and Alice to firmly believe God had a good plan for them.
When we had children, Alice noticed that they easily learned Bible stories that we read to them over and over. She wondered why this could not be done with the Bible itself, so she made a scrapbook of Psalm 23. She hand lettered the text, illustrated it with pictures from calendars and magazines and put a song at the end. Our son was almost three at the time and we read the Psalm 23 to him a number of times a day. After about a month, Jonathan was sitting on the couch one day looking at it by himself. As he turned the pages and looked at the pictures he was repeating the text!
As we began exploring that (we had no experience in publishing) we were providentially led to a lady who had written quite a number of chapter length scripture songs. This fit right in because now we could have a song as well as the pictures and text to help in the memory process. The Lord led us to artists and friends who could do the recording. So we have been in the publishing business since 1990.
