What motivated and inspired you to start your own business?
Deuteronomy 6:6-7 (KJV) says, “And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart: and thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.”
God truly motivated and inspired me to start my own business through His precious Word. I had a burning desire that more of His Word be cherished in my home and the homes around me. I was spending time journaling a scripture that had really penetrated my heart when I felt like God was telling me “why not make these for other women to put in their homes”. The light bulb immediately went off! And I thought, “Yes! I can do that!”
Tell us about your business.
My love for lettering started in the pages of my journal. In my bible study times, I would find scriptures that would resonate in my spirit and just create an illustration. It was not until the summer of 2016, that I decided to start my own business creating custom made God-inspired handmade home decor and gifts with inspirational quotes and scriptures on them. I love spending time in His presence and allowing Him to take full lead on all designs.

What were the first few steps you took to get your business up and running?
My first steps I took to get my business up and running was to really get active using my social media accounts and starting my blog.
What has been the most effective way of raising awareness of your business and getting new customers?
The most effective way for me to build awareness about my business has been word of mouth. Also, collaborating with other creatives and bloggers has helped build and raise awareness of my business.
What have been your biggest challenges so far?
I think one of my biggest challenges in this entrepreneurial journey has been trying to launch without having an engaged audience from the beginning. I started with no connections at all. I just had a vision and I was excited to just start. Now, I know the importance of building a community around your business.
How did you overcome these challenges?
Prayer was definitely my first response to these challenges. I decided to just keep going by being faithful to the vision God gave me. Yes, there were some days I felt like quitting, but I held on to what God was telling me.
How do you keep motivated through difficult times?
The Word of God truly keeps me motivated during difficult times. I also try to surround myself with like-minded and positive people who are doing the similar things as me. We definitely help one another out like iron sharpens iron. I have come to figure out that we all need each other in order to succeed.
How do you distinguish yourself from your competitors?
I like to distinguish myself by just being me. I am not trying to be like any one else. I am my best when I am just me and doing what God desires for me to do.
What is the best advice you have received recently?
I was working in my yard mowing my lawn, and I was wishing I had this and that. I heard the Spirit of the Lord speak to me saying, “Stop wishing and start doing.” Often times I wish I had this or I had that, but God encouraged me to just do it.
What advice would you give to other entrepreneurs?
Stop waiting for everything to be perfect in order to do what God is calling you to do. If you will just take that first step, He will do the rest. Continue to see the beauty in the process. Your process is going to look different from everyone else. Cast down your fears and keep walking in your God-given purpose. If God brought you to it, He will bring you through it.
