Audiobook Ministries

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.

South Sound Nature School

Naturalist Educator & Wilderness Skills Instructor

As a child Porcupine spent countless hours exploring, observing, swimming, and fishing on the lands and waters of Lake Erie.  Curious and thankful for the generations that came before us Porcupine received a degree in Cultural Anthropology from the University of Toledo.  Noticing a connection with his childhood and the next generation of kids, Porcupine became a Resident Naturalist teaching hands-on inquiry-based science for the Juneau School District.  Wanting to deepen his naturalist training he completed the rigorous, nine-month residential Anake Naturalist Training Program at the Wilderness Awareness School in Duvall, WA. During that time he also completed the certification through Kamana Four, a self directed three-year nature study program.  From there he has served as a freelance naturalist in various settings on the West coast ultimately becoming the In-School Programs Specialist at Seward Park Audubon.   Porcupine throughly enjoys free imaginative play and you might find him at a local park building fairy houses.
