was born out of a sincere desire to share the good news of God's
word and the love of Jesus Christ. It is our hope that through
these greeting cards, e-cards, e-devotionals, the Precious e-story,
etc. you will be encouraged, uplifted and strengthened in the
great love that God has for you, and that those who receive
these creations will also be encouraged in His great message
My wife Lois, and I (Richard) started ChristianGreetingCards.com
back in 1998. I started drawing those big nose characters called
Christoons when I was
very young. In 1986, when going through a difficult time, I
started combining them with scripture. I found that illustrating
the word of God in this way gave great comfort and understanding
through the Holy Spirit. Since then I added the 3d'Mentionables,
& Sonshines to the
colorful collection of illustrations of God's lovingkindness.
The characters may also be found on our e-devotional
pages, which I have written to uplift the body of Christ. Being
a pastor, I know how important it is to get God's word into
your heart, mind and life...I pray that they will be found to
be a blessing to you.
Lois, my wife, is an extremely sweet person and helps in more
ways than could possibly be written in thousands
of web pages. But of special note concerning this site, she
is the writer of the verses in our greeting
card line. Her heartfelt desire is for others to know Jesus
the Saviour. Her verses, her poetry, and mostly her life, reflect
her love and gratitude to God.
Precious Meets the King, was
written by my wife Kristine who went home early to be with the
Lord in 1992 (shorly before our third anniversary.) Her heart
is seen in the writing of every page. Her dedication on the
final page was written by Lois... "now she's face to
face with the King of Glory."
We also have a ministry of music - it's very mellow, acoustic
and soothing...especially when you consider that I was formally
in a punk rock band in the 1980's. You can listen to our CD
"Such A Friend - Songs for restoring
the soul" on this site, which consists of nine of our
original songs, full of the Lord's great love for His people.
Of special note is "I
Rejoice over You" which Lois wrote around the verses
of Zephaniah 3:17. And "Apple
of My Eye", which the Lord gave me concerning the great
providence and care He has over our lives.
We hope, if nothing else, that this site encouraged you. May
you find peace in all that God has and desires for your life,
and may you be strengthened in His faith, hope and love.
