About Us

Good Things Company was established in 1975. Today, after more than forty years, Good Things Company is still owned and operated by Dr. Mary Lou (Farris) Knowles’ family, her son-in-law and daughter, Rocky and Jane Martin and their children.

The purpose of Good Things Company remains the same: To provide products that promote and improve the reading and understanding of the Holy Bible for the Glory of GOD.

Good Things Company is not just a business but more importantly a ministry.  Through the years, hundreds – if not thousands of products have been donated to Prisoners and Prison Ministries.  How better to change a person’s heart than through Knowing Jesus.  We receive many letters from prisoners, stating they have been ‘born again’, have ‘time’ now and would like charts to follow as they read the Bible.  See the note from the ‘Son of Sam’ under the Testimonials Tab.

Another area that is dear to our heart is the Home School Movement and also Christian Schools.  This is not to say that we are against Public Schools.  Our family actually is made up of many public school teachers and coaches that are Christians.  However, with the world tumbling downwards, it is becoming more evident that the Christian values that we adhere to and aspire to are allowed less and less in the public classroom.   When time permits, we love to travel around the country, exhibiting and showing our support for these organizations.

Having started in 1975 in Norman, Oklahoma, Good Things Company at one time was the biggest mail order company next to The University of Oklahoma.  Now most orders, of course, are through the internet, with a few customers preferring still to write or telephone.

We appreciate YOU and your business and hope that you find our products to be of high quality and very useful!
