Our Behind the Scenes Hero

Most people who order from our online store don’t know that almost everything is packed by our 91-year-old grandpa! Not only does he pack orders, he keeps the basement organized, duplicates CDs, meticulously proof-reads for us, picks up mail from our PO box, takes inventory, packs and unpacks for our conferences, and meets many other needs (including remembering to water our plants, since we always forget).

Even more than the practical help Grandpa provides, we appreciate his prayers. Actually, he prays diligently not only for all his children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren, but he prays for each individual at our church by name (while keeping up-to-date with the details of their lives). Right now he is also teaching four Bible studies. 🙂 He keeps a pretty busy schedule. I hope that when I am 91 I will be living the same kind of life. Also hoping that one day I will have read through the Bible 40+ times like he has!

I won’t go into detail about the quirky skills he maintains such as quoting the books of the Bible backwards, naming major US cities in order of population, his detailed knowledge of all the presidents and vice presidents, or his tips for remembering the ten plagues in Egypt, but if you know him you can ask him yourself.

Thanks Grandpa for your godly example in our lives!

“Most men will proclaim each his own goodness, but who can find a faithful man? The righteous man walks in his integrity; His children are blessed after him” (Proverbs 20:6-7).


  1. Aw, what a testimony! Thanks so much for the inspiration, Grace. I hope I’m so busy serving the Lord at 91 too!

    And many thanks to your Grandpa for serving so many and shining so brightly for the Lord!

  2. What an encouragement to read about how your grandpa is using his life productively for God’d Kingdom. Thank you for packing off our Christmas Story from the Bible prints, Mr. Mally. We found them really useful this Christmas season.

  3. His hoary head is indeed a crown of glory being found in the way of righteousness!!

  4. I love your family!!! What a beautiful testimony and family heritage. Keep up the great work for HIM!! What a blessing you all are. 🙂
