| I come from a rich spiritual background. My grandfather came into the truth back in the 1920's. My father was baptized in 1939 and served as a regular pioneer and then Circuit Overseer, or as it was known back then, "Servant to the Brethren." He then served as a special pioneer and he is listed on page 40 of the 1948 Yearbook of Jehovah's Witnesses. He married my mother who was serving as a regular pioneer. |
My wife and I are both full-time pioneers along with several others that work here. We all feel privileged to work with God's Word on a daily basis to beautify and personalize it. Our brothers at Bethel work hard to produce the most outstanding translation in the world and at a very low cost. Since ours is a commercial work we do charge for our services. Please keep in mind though that the books you send us printed by the Watchtower are not "free" and were printed at a cost.
I began binding books in 1980 because I wanted to improve on what was available. At the time the popular bookbinding company that most Witnesses used were not Witnesses themselves. They were not familiar with "our" needs and wants in regards to Bible binding. Today there are others who do book binding - qualities vary. Also some allude to be Witnesses or associated in some way but are not Jehovah's Witnesses. After observing a lot of different brother's and sister's Bibles and noting where these books broke down the most, I worked at improving and strengthening those areas. This was important because we get attached to our personal Bibles, "training" them to open to "pet" scriptures and jotting those special side notes in them. We want our Bibles to last as long as possible and to look as nice as possible. This has always been my goal and is why I started bookbinding.
