I am not a Precious Moments fan but was pleasantly surprised by the beautiful story, stained glass windows, and the meaning behind the paintings. WOW!!! more »

I'm honestly really glad I stopped here while staying nearby in Joplin. It just popped up on Google maps and I had to check it out. Born in the 80s grew up in the 90s and I had books, the figurines, and thought the tear drop art style was so...precious :) I'm not sure if it's still popular as before, but wanted to enjoy some childhood memories through it again. You will walk through quite the lovely garden and statues to the chapel gates. The main prayer room is beautiful with angels on the ceiling and I loved the stained glass windows. So many pictures, quotes, and sentimental pieces in regard the artist Samuel Butcher. I missed the tour on the hour but self-guided was fine. Don't miss the opportunity to step outside behind the chapel to snap a pic of the little house in the river and the statue through a clearing in the forest. Parking was easy here and the gift shop had discounted tshirts and postcards I sent to family who had similarly never known this chapel existed.
I love this place and how spiritual it is!!! It's my 3rd time to get to visit in the past 20 years. It touches my heart every time. I have collected SEVERAL pieces through the years. My favorite part of them is all the sayings/meanings that go with each!! Today I was able to bring my husband and his disability dog in!!! Feel very blessed!!!
For a precious moments collector, this is THE place to visit. Unique pieces, great staff, and you must take the chapel tour and hear the history of Sam. Great stop if you are in the area.
This is a really special place. I am glad we stopped on the way by. The chapel is beautiful.
Just a very sweet place and surprising the kids loved it so much. I think it really spoke to them and they are 5-17.
