I showed the first Transformed by His Grace mug in 2006 at the Peanut Festival in Dothan, AL. Now, ten years later, I am proud to say we have opened a storefront in Tallahassee called Transformed by His Grace Coffee and Christian Gifts.
The road to this point has had God’s hand on it in a profound way. I was ﬁrst led to start this company as a means to share God’s Word in a unique way, through the “Mug with a Message.” What began with one “sunrise” mug design has grown to over a dozen designs that have been shared around the world. Through online and retail outlets around the country, our mugs are being used to inspire and encourage those who receive their message.
As our company has grown, so has our need for warehouse and distribution space. However, every time we looked at eligible properties, we were met with roadblocks. When a local church presented us with an opportunity to rent a storefront in their plaza, we were unsure if we should take such a large step. After much prayer and godly counsel, we felt led to accept their offer and to expand our original plans.
God was giving us a bigger vision: to be a different type of Christian business—a place where people can ﬁnd fellowship, encouragement, and the positive message of God’s Word. He’s even brought Tobi Hester to us to open a coffee bar within the store. She had just closed her local coffee shop, Eternal Grounds, and we were so excited when she agreed to work with us! Now, customers can sip coffee while they shop for mugs and other gifts from wind chimes to our own line of tech items with a Christian theme.
I’m looking forward to seeing what God has planned for us. Please stop by the store—next to the Miracle 8 Theater on Sharer Road—to see our one-of-a-kind Christian gifts and enjoy a wonderful coffee!
We are all being transformed into the likeness of the Lord. (See 2 Corinthians 3:18)
