Marking its five-year anniversary in Jasper, Alabama, dual business Stewart Family Pools & Christian Books has proved to be a successful concept, says owner Alicia Stewart. “It really gets people’s attention. You need Jesus, and if you have a pool, you need pool supplies.” The Christian items were added when the pool store moved to a new location. “We looked around to see what Jasper didn’t have, and we don’t have a Christian book store,” says Stewart. “We’re Christians, so we thought, why not? That just makes sense.”
