And this is why we do what we do...

When I think back to over two years ago when Sara & I began our Tabletop Truths business/ministry I remember what our NUMERO UNO goal was: TO GET THE TRUTH OF GOD'S WORD into the hearts and minds of children and their families in an easy, convenient, "daily routine" way! While we try keep that objective in the forefront of our minds and on the home page of our website it is definitely easy to get bogged down in the details of running a business...paying those darn taxes, going to the post office for the umpteempth time in a week in the 3-digit Texas weather, feeding our own kiddos fast food so we can crank out 200 Armor of God placemats for an upcoming show and on and on....we sometimes look at each other and say "Now, why are we doing this? Is it worth it?" And then we will receive a kind email or a thank you note from a parent or grandparent expressing their appreciation for the "tools" we provide and how they really are making a difference in the lives of kiddos. Well, about 2 weeks ago we were in a bit of a discouraging slump and BOOM...we had the greatest treat ever waiting for us in our inbox!

A sweet mommy graciously took the time to email us this video of her not quite 3 year old daughter in action using the "Jesus Is" placemat. Isn't it amazing what little ones can learn?? The precious E's grandmother has given her quite a few of our placemats and this was her newest one. Thank you to E's mommy for her faithfulness in teaching and training little E and thank you also for reminding us WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO!

We are so grateful and humbled that the Lord has allowed us to use HIS WORD, our late night craftiness and the faithfulness of parents like E's mommy to fill little hearts with TRUTH!

Watch and Enjoy! You will be blessed beyond measure!!


  1. So sweet! What an amazing display of God's truth revealed to those who come as little children. Lord, give me the eyes and faith of a child!

  2. I have just looked at your placemats. They are WONDERFUL! I am a grandmother to 3 little girls. I would love to buy all of them for each of them. I raised 4 children and loved having special placemats for my children. My 2 favorites are God's Attributes and Creation. All good theology starts in the garden and when you know who He is then you can walk through life in peace.
