It seems simple enough to say right? Be brave! Do what God has called you to do! Too bad it’s not as easy to do as it is to say…
The whole point of my brand, courageous and wonderfully made, was to empower women. To provide you with some encouragement as you go through life and to offer you products that you would find inspiring. Things you would wear or buy for your daughter or other other female friend/relative. But when I finally had my first line of products developed, I was terrified to tell anyone!
Our first products are hand made and absolutely gorgeous…they are leather bracelets and wrist bands for both men and women. Hand made for each person, the leather craftsman I’m partnering with is incredibly talented. There’s nothing wrong with these items and yet, when I first announced that they were on sale I had SO much anxiety. You guys (the people reading this) are my number one thought when it comes to this brand. I put my heart and soul into every item and blog post. So the idea of putting something out there that could be rejected really scared me. I’ve always been a people pleaser so I can’t stand the idea of people not liking what will be made specifically for them, yet I did it anyway.
I had to remind myself that this brand is not mine to worry about so the items that will eventually be for sale aren’t either. God gave me this brand and gave me this message to bring to you…so He will take care of what sells and what doesn’t. He will make sure that those who need what I offer will be sure to buy them.
“This is my command—be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.””
– Joshua 1:9 NLT
The craftsman made me a wrap bracelet for my own use and it has Joshua 1:9 inscribed on it. I think it’s absolutely perfect as I watch this brand blossom and unfold into whatever God has made it to be. Just like we are blossoming into whatever God has created us for. It’s amazing how when you let God lead the way, fear and anxiety take a back seat to awe and wonder. We just forget that sometimes, which is why I’m glad to have my bracelet to remind me.
If you are interested in placing an order for your own custom leather bracelet I’ll be putting in an order once a month with our craftsman (The November order will be due by Saturday the 4th) so send me an email with how many/what you want at firstname.lastname@example.org
Shipping is $3 and I’ll send you a total as well as an invoice via PayPal. Prices will range from $8-$25 per bracelet.
Lets live the life we were created to…without fear!!
