Following God to bookstore ownership

The Lexington Herald-Leader ran an article about Jennifer Henderson, a local bookstore owner. Henderson had been working at a Toyota plant making $100,000 a year, but she heard the call of God to own a Christian bookstore. Henderson resisted God's urging numerous times until she heard His voice:
One day, Henderson heard God speaking only to her.

'The whole plant went quiet,' Henderson said. 'All I could hear was, 'Are you trusting me, Toyota, your husband or what?'

Henderson laughed as she recalled that time.

'I said, 'Oh, you had to go and pull out the big guns.''

Henderson finally followed God's lead and opened the Serenity Christian Bookstore in Oct. 2006.
