Colorado resident Becky Lauro loves shopping at evangelical stores, where "There is nothing that would embarrass me in front of my mother and kids."

... evangelical toys, alarm clocks and books ... "Pick Jesus" T-shirt ... action figures of Moses, Samson and Jesus surfing ... license-plate frames "In case of Rapture, this car's yours" ... David and Goliath dolls ... Sweet Truth Mints and Turtle Doves chocolates ... family-friendly video games, a doll called "Faith" whose chief accessory is a tiny Bible ... board game "Champions of Faith" and "Chronicles of Narnia" ice castle ...
