Shop Announcement! Or maybe I should say Lengthy Shop Announcement! (Cue a fresh cup of coffee or a nice cup of tea.)
You all know my love for babies and their mamas. And my passion for creating. All colliding in happy abandon in my humble little shop. Well, don't you know over the past few years a bit of a ministry has blossomed? All seemingly with a life of its own. As many bibs, aprons and bags that have sold in my shop, have likewise been auctioned, gifted, donated and raffled in fundraising efforts and campaigns, most of which have found me, rather than the other way around. Adopting families, orphanages in Taiwan, displaced families, under-served areas, schools in Uganda, children’s ministries, and young adults for their World Race mission trips. Each has profoundly blessed me, opening doors, cementing friendships, and awakening giving hearts all around me.
I’ve known for some time this ministry was ready to grow. The next step actually comes quite naturally, once I opened my heart to His gentle prodding. It is time. Respecting that nudging and the desire to invest my gifts in a more focused manner, I will be offering products in my shop in support of several ministries that I’ve been led to. Ministries that are blessing others, however humbly or simply, and affirming the command to love one another. All proceeds for these items will be donated to the ministry it represents. Materials and labor are my gift; your gift is the purchase of the product.
This month I am beyond thrilled to sponsor St. Bryce Missions, led by our beloved Mitchell family, Greg, Colleen and their band of boys, ministering and sharing the Gospel in Costa Rica. Blessing babies and their mama’s, they have founded the St. Frances Emmaus Center, providing prenatal care and nutrition, labor preparation, postpartum and infant care to the Cabecar indigenous women of Costa Rica. For them, I have created two lively jungle themed bib and burp cloth sets, the fabrics which have been chosen specifically for this mission, to honor baby Bryce, and are exclusive to their ministry effort.
Sets in both pink and blue are available in my Etsy shop now. I hope you will be inspired to share in this ministry and help continue the chain of people blessing people. xoxox
Have a blessed day, my friends
