Tree of Life’s Suggestions!
We welcome you to bring in your suggestions, too, but most of all we challenge each of us to be a Berean in all teachings, music, reading material, whether for pleasure or truth, and that we follow the Biblical pattern of the Bereans. Acts 17:11 gives us a clue. “These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.” In our zeal and striving for Biblical truth and understanding, we encourage all of us to be as the Bereans and make sure the things we are hearing, reading, or listening to are scriptural.

At Tree of Life we have a variety of new and used books and Bibles in several categories such as, fiction and non-fiction, spiritual growth, Bible studies, biographies, and testimonies. Church supplies include communion cups, bulletins, tracts, anointing oil, certificates for Baptism and Marriage, and boxed cards. Gift certificates are also available.
In this department we carry books to encourage, challenge, and help in your spiritual growth. We also have devotionals and journals for personal study. Authors such as Chuck Swindoll, Jim George, Watchman Nee, Elizabeth Elliott, and Dr. Dobson will lift you up and give sound council in each season of your life. There is also Karen Mains, Gail MacDonald, Francis Schaeffer, and Beth Moore.
Music is a comfort to one’s soul no matter what is going on in your life. We desire to provide music that will worship and praise the Lord along with country gospel favorites such as: Alan Jackson, Reba McEntire, Glen Campbell, Randi Travis, and Jim Reeves. We have lullaby music for babies and fun action songs for young children and new music by Michael W. Smith and Casting Crowns. There are also instrumentals and the best of Maranatha Music.
There are many ideas and books on how to parent and it’s hard to narrow down the best. We have several books for suggested reading that include authors John Trent and Gary Smalley, Dr. Dobson, Tedd Tripp, Kenneth Taylor, and Richard and Susan Hunt. Children’s books include “Little Pilgrim’s Progress” “Big Truths of Little Kids” and “Do Hard Things” (for teens). Stop by and ask about our favorites.
We have a large selection of gifts for all occasions including locally crafted items, stuffed animals from Douglas Toy Co., hostess gifts, gifts sets, and boxed cards for that special note you wish to send. We now have several books written by local authors.
