In Search of Indie – 2019 Episode 8

Mount Hermon Bookshop, Santa Cruz Mountains (Mount Hermon, CA)


Nestled in the Santa Cruz Mountains is the beautiful Mount Hermon Conference Center. I’m sure many of you have had the pleasure of spending a week or even a weekend at an event there. There’s nothing (well almost nothing) as beautiful than walking along with the redwoods all around you and high above. On this trip, I had one purpose. To find the rare commodity in California…a Christian Bookstore. I was not disappointed. Welcomed by beautiful gifts, clothing and home goods, you get a vision for the depth of the store stretched out in front of you. Rows of books. Immediately welcomed by staff, my husband and I felt right at home and ready to browse. Again…we were not disappointed at the selection and variety of book topics on their shelves. The staff who helped us was not only friendly and helpful, but well read and provided great insight. That’s the kind of staff you want to find in a bookstore. As usual, I left with a new journal and pen, along with gifts. The new devotional by Lee Strobel, The Case for Christ Devotional has been enjoyable, and my husband has been very challenged with his pick of The Cost of Discipleship by Bonhoffer. All in all, well worth our stop along the way to our destination at Pacific Grove.


Thank you to the staff who blessed us with their gracious hospitality.


When did you last stay at Mount Hermon Conference Center?
