LITTLE ROCK, AR—With a smile and a wave, Solid Rock Christian Bookstore sales associate Mark Wenzler is changing lives, and, according to sources, now blessing more people than God Himself.
“I don’t look at them as customers; I look at them as congregants,” says Wenzler. “I feel like this sales counter is my pulpit. I’m not just here to ring up Jesus Calling devotionals, Jesus Calling responsive journals, and Jesus Calling deluxe KJV leather-bound adult coloring books. I’m here to be a blessing.”
Accordingly, Wenzler has developed an array of blessings to lavish on customers. “My standard phrase is ‘Have a blessed day!’—that’s my go-to. But I like to mix it up with ‘Be blessed!’ and even ‘Go with blessings!’ I don’t do that last one for everybody, just when the Spirit moves.”
“He’s my star employee,” says Solid Rock store manager Crawford Whitham. “Nobody else has his frequency and range of blessings. I’ve got parents bringing their entire quivers in here just to be blessed by Mark.”
Wenzler remains humble in the face of such praise, offering a meek “I’m really blessed by those words. What a blessing.”
