More than a Hobby - David Green the CEO of Hobby Lobby

Yesterday I had the chance to spend time with David Green, the CEO of Hobby Lobby, his son Steve Green the President and David's grandson Tyler.


I have such respect for the numerous ways they are using the opportunities in the business itself to impact their team and the world for Christ. They're bold, passionate yet humbled by the ways they've seen God work.


Stories like Hobby Lobby are such an inspiration for people to see their work as an opportunity for worship and its fun to see how it can inspire others to make a difference.


On the drive home yesterday I was reminded how much I enjoyed reading David's story. Its a great story of how they grew from a small start up in the garage into nearly 490 stores across the country while holding true to their mission and God's values.
