"The reading of all good books is like a conversation with the finest men of past centuries."
Inspirational speaker, minister, Visioneer, and administrative professional for over two decades Garry Ratliff Jr has been at the helm of encouraging people through tough moments in their life, career, or spiritual journey.
He is known by his network of friends and associates, as 'The Connector', for always having a resource or person to further explore or discover more on the subject being discussed. In-kind, as a mentor, Garry has helped countless youth and families get past the rough patch of transition and into a foundational truth that “love really conquers all, with a plan”.
“Love who you are, what you do, and those who contribute to that effort!”

Thank you for visiting Isabella's Bookstore, I am delighted you are here!
Opening this shop is a dream coming to life. An independent, community-based online shop filled with books, beautiful products from local artisans, and conversations with authors and neighbors is a convergence of all my favorite things. When you add my eight-year old son asking if he can help show other children where all the best kids’ books are, there you have it: my version of paradise.
Now, more than ever, communities like ours need safe spaces to gather for discussion and reflection. Neighbors should feel welcome and be encouraged to ask questions, share feelings, and get to know one another. Bookshops are wonderful places where the act of pulling a book off the shelf can spark a conversation that leads to authentic and meaningful connections. Bookshops are magical spots where children discover the characters that turn them into life-long readers and learners. These experiences cannot be downloaded.
