Gideon's Trumpet, Minot's Only Christian Bookstore

Kay Eaton left the nursing field 20 years ago to start a Christian book store. With no retail experience she learned as she went along... including the fact that a Christian book store ought to have Bibles on the shelf. Gideon's Trumpet is a favorite with our family (and not just because our daughter worked for Kay). Gifts from Gideon's trumpet are special because they reflect our faith and our family is based on our faith in God.

 

Minot Today is broadcast over two radio stations every Friday. You can find it on 106.9 FM at 12:15 (Noonish) and again at 4:45 on 1320 AM. Of course I always post the broadcast as a Podcast here as well as my Podcast site at Pod-O-Matic.

Hi Bob "RealMan" Timm 

If I'm ever in Minot I will stop into Gideon's Trumpet. In our area, Christian Book Distributor is the primary source for Christian material

Hi Bob,
We have one Christian bookstore as well. I love going in and just browsing, not just the books but they also have a nice selection of Christian gift items.

I'd love to be your host if you stop in Minot Doug Dawes .

Same here Carol Williams , I can easily kill an hour looking at the gifts and the clever words of inspiration on many items.

Bob, it is hard to beat a really good Christian bookstore. I can spend hours in them.

Good afternoon Bob "RealMan" Timm - Kudos to you for highlighting Gideon's Trumpet.  I would visit the store too if I were there.

I am Myrl Jeffcoat although it's going to be a little busier then I normally want my weekends to be.

Grant Schneider if you should ever pass through Minot I hope you can take some time off to let me show you the town.

Morning Bob.

We have a rather large Bible Book Store near us.  They are very busy throughout the year.

Good Morning Bob "RealMan" Timm - What a great brand for this Book Store! I hope the owners will be very successful.

Our communities are lucky to be blessed with retailers that focus on The Word James Dray . Gideon's is also busy (not crazy) year around and it's neat that Kay, the owner, trusts young people like my daughter to work there.

Hi Bob... we have a number of Christian Book Stores in the Charlotte area... maybe that has something to do with us being in the South and being heavily Baptist. Charlotte also still has the most houses of worship per capita of any city in the USA as far as I know.

It is always a good practice to promote favorite local businesses.
