June 1, 2010 I published the last issue (at least for a while) of Girl Talk my teen girl magazine. Since this blog was originally designed for the purpose of publishing weekly devotions for the magazine and later the magazine itself I decided to create another blog that isn’t connected to Girl Talk.

I’ll probably still publish book reviews or other items here now and again but you’ll more often find me at Trusting Him with Today. I hope you’ll stop by

Nice Matters

A few weeks ago I went on an outing with several young ladies. We had a fun day exploring our beautiful island, being tourists at home for a day. We stumbled across, Caribbean Lighthouse, a quaint little souvenir store in the Port Lucaya Marketplace. The store was filled with beautiful and interesting Bahamian made artwork, jewelry and other souvenir items. The girls and I were quite intrigued as we looked around the store, admiring the different items each one with its own unique features.

All of the girls saw things that they wanted to purchase. However, by the time we stopped in the store most of our money had been exhausted on other things, like daiquiris, video games, sunglasses, earrings and a few other things we thought were absolute necessities.

The fact that we were simply “window shopping” did not deter the sales consultants. They went out of their way to show us their products and pleasantly answered our endless questions. In fact, after they noticed that the girls were interested in some of the smaller souvenirs they gave them such a good discount that they were able to purchase something in the store. One of the sale consultants even went outside and patiently took photos of our group with about four different digital cameras.

We left the store thinking, “Wow! What nice people. I’m definitely going there again.” Hopefully, we’ll have more money next time.

So if you're ever in the Port Lucaya Marketplace in Grand Bahama, be sure to stop in at the Caribbean Lighthouse, and do take a few dollars with you. I assure you, you'll enjoy spending it.
