Christian retail stores and suppliers are offering deals for Valentine's Day, Feb. 14.

Family Christian Stores is advertising a "$5 & 50% off Doorbusters" sale on its website, spotlighting marriage books such as 15 Minute Devotions for Couples by Bob and Emilie Barnes (Harvest House Publishers) for $8.39 versus the $13.99 regular price.

The chain is also offering the inspirational drama 1 Message (EchoLight Studios) for $7.49 versus $14.99 and $5 on several products, including Point of Grace's A Thousand Little Things (Word Records/Word Distribution).

Mardel Christian & Education is running Valentine's specials, including offering new love-themed, Willow Tree sculptures; True Love Waits and purity jewelry for 25% off; and Blooming Expressions flower blooms from DaySpring.

Johnsen & Taylor in Wheaton, Ill.—Tyndale House Publishers' joint venture with Christian Art Gifts and South Africa-based Christian Publishing Company—is also offering a Valentine's sale, including $5 for the best-selling Fireproof: Special Collector's Edition DVD (Provident Films/Provident Distribution).

Meanwhile, American Idol finalist and three-time GRAMMY nominee Mandisa is hosting a Valentine's Day event for single women. The event, called "Galentines," will be held at LifeWay Christian Resources' headquarters in downtown Nashville. It will also be broadcast online to churches, small groups and individuals.

In honor of his wife, Dorla, John Schlitt—lead singer for the GRAMMY-winning band Petra—is offering a Valentine's Day free download via www.SchlittShop.com of "The Gift (Dorla's Song)," the most recent single on his fourth solo CD, The Greater Cause (Daywind Music Group/New Day Christian Distributors).

"I know that the Lord brought us together and by His grace has kept us together for more than 40 years—through all the ups, the downs and everything in between," said Schlitt. "In all the years I've been involved in music, I had never written a song about the amazing gift the Lord has given me in my wife."
