Friends, we are celebrating today as we launch the “Give Me Jesus” collection!
Welcome to day four of “Life Lived Beautifully” Fashion Week! We have been digging into how the gospel affects our closets, how we can dress modestly and point to Jesus, as well as some creative ways on organizing our closets and simplifying our wardrobe. Today we are going to talk about how your wardrobe is like an artist’s palette. You create through what you wear!
My hands were completely a mess. I was in the backyard with all my paints, pencils, and sketchbook. Everything around me was ravishing and eagerly waiting to be brought to life through pen and paper. The dirt I sat on didn’t phase me as I gazed at the flowers in my dad’s tiny garden and drew the spectacular beauty before me. These were no Monet paintings, but they were made form the very depths of who I was. They brought my heart to life. They were me. As a little girl, creativity was my identity. In school I wasn’t known for my basketball skills (which are literally non-existent), but for my art skills. I hung out with my art teacher and worked on projects with her during our breaks. I embraced every poster project as an opportunity to make something beautiful. I will never forget doing a project on Mother Teresa in middle school. I painted a watercolor portrait of Mother Teresa on white poster board as if it were my chance to show the world the beauty of this woman’s life through paper and brush.

Meet Bethann. I realized recently that a majority of the women I have been featuring in this series I met online. Never before would I have imagined that I would find dear friends who love Jesus through the internet! For so long I was skeptical that the Internet could be used for God’s glory, but […]
“To know the worth of the Anchor, we need to feel the strength of the storm.” One of the treasures I have is my Mawmaw’s Bible. The pages are worn, the binding has been taped together, and most importantly, she wrote her favorite quotes and hymns on the front flap. Mawmaw suffered greatly from severe […]
I grew up in a church that regularly sang the song “Celebrate, Jesus Celebrate”! (for anyone of you that knows this song, it might be in your head all day:) But do I actually live a life that celebrate Jesus? It seems that we have belittled celebrating to only the big things. But what about the little […]
Creating is life. If you are a “creative” you know what I mean. From cooking a colorful meal to wearing different combinations of your clothing (never the same thing twice) to making something new from something old. The world is a canvas ready to be painted on. This is by no accident. This is who […]
