As Mother's Day approaches, I can't help but feel all the extra special feels. (View our Mother's Day Collection here.)
Looking back to 2017, I had no idea of the grand plans that God had in store for me— I was newly divorced and just started selling prayer bracelets. I remember so many late nights after my daughter went to bed working hard on this dream God had placed in my heart.
It was hard-—it’s still hard. But, I can't help but feel incredibly grateful for all the good that has come my way. God truly is good, and I'm constantly amazed that I get to do what I do.
Every day, I receive stories from customers that bring so much joy to my heart and motivate me to keep creating faith-based jewelry to encourage personal prayer and to spark conversations about Jesus. I truly believe that every bit of this company is God's work, and we are simply willing vessels he can use.

Reading customer emails is one of my favorite parts of day, I've been known from time-to-time to shed some tears of gratitude, and it's all thanks to you!
I wanted to take a moment to express my heartfelt thanks for your support of our small business.
You have no idea how much it means.
Thank you for helping us bring more light into this world. Because His light + your story, is what the world needs.
Once again, thank you so much for being a part of my journey. I couldn't do it without you!
Thanks for listening to my story, and remember to celebrate all the moms out there and continue to spread love and His Light

P.S. As a mom myself, I can speak for many moms out there when I say that we often struggle to get photos of ourselves with our kids…
…So, if you happen to know a single mom, why not offer to take a photo of her with her kids? Trust me, she'll appreciate it more than you know.
It's a small gesture that can make a big difference in her day and in her memories. Plus, who doesn't love a good family photo to look back on?
P.P.S. Here's 2017 throwback video of my daughter that made me chuckle—boy, time flies!
