Hobby Lobby Stays Open Because Owner’s Wife Had Vision From God
Barbara talks to God: Despite the dangers of the coronavirus pandemic, Hobby Lobby owner David Green refuses to close his chain of arts and crafts stores because his wife Barbara had a vision from God.
In a letter to store managers Green ordered his employees to keep working and keep the stores open because his wife Barbara, a “prayer warrior,” received a message from God. In the letter dated March 19 Green writes:
In my family, Barbara is the prayer warrior. Today, that title takes on such a different meaning than I ever imagined before because we are at war with this latest virus…
In her quiet prayer time this past week, the Lord put on Barbara’s heart three profound words to remind us that He’s in control. Guide, Guard, and Groom. We serve a God who will Guide us through this storm, who will Guard us as we travel to places never seen before, and who, as a result of this experience, will Groom us to be better than we could have ever thought possible before now.
