Audiobook Ministries began in 1980 as Tape ministries NW when a group of volunteers led by Crystal Bullis from John Knox Presbyterian Church in Normandy Park WA. began recording Christian books for a friend who was blind. Over thirty years later, our staff and volunteers are still recording and producing books, now in digital format. We are in the process of converting our library to digital format that works with the National Library Service’s talking book player. Our ever growing number of digital books continues to grow.
Our office is open 3 days per week located near the SeaTac Airport.
Awesome Kids Day Organization
We believe that kids were born not just to survive but to THRIVE! We know that for kids to thrive we need to provide them with some basics. They need outstanding nutrition, access to books, places to play as they build fine and gross motor skills, emotional nurturing, friendships, access to education, outstanding physical health, and strong community.
Awesome Kids Day is a day for us to celebrate the naturally healthy and joyful state of the children in our community and encourage them to live their lives with health, gratitude and joy.

Viewing this film will inspire and encourage you to talk to your friends, family, health care agents and medical providers about your own end of life planning, choices and wishes.
As one viewer wrote to them:
“I just wanted to let you know how great I thought the film Speaking of Dying was. In fact, I watched it twice. It was a bit emotional hearing about people’s circumstances leading to the end, but I thought it was a wonderful, thoughtful and well-orchestrated documentary — packed full of a lot of important and insightful info and a lot of love. Thank you for sharing that with me.”

Imagine a school where education is viewed not just as a means to an end, but as an aid to life; where the method for learning comes not from a curriculum, but from the natural development of your child; a place where creativity, innovation, and individuality are valued as much as concentration, motivation, and persistence; where your child is not just a student, but also a teacher.
