In the Studio
I’m super excited to launch our new Mother’s Day piece, inspired by Proverbs 31:25-26. These verses describe the attributes of a godly wife.As the mother of five kiddos I can honestly say motherhood is trying, but the joy and fulfillment of motherhood is profound. As the upright woman described in Proverbs 31, press on, stay strong, and do not fear the times to come. I look forward to releasing this piece in celebration of all the wonderful mothers who deserve this beautiful gift as thanks for all they do and an encouragement to persevere in love, kindness and hope.
This month, we are featuring our beautiful, timeless He is Still Good and Tears pieces. When my husband George passed away, I already had these pieces on my bench and didn’t realize how much comfort, peace, and encouragement the verses that inspired them would bring to me. The Lord illuminated these parts of Scripture so I would be surrounded by them in my time of need. He saw me in my deepest sorrow and gave my weary soul rest and healing. These verses remind us that we can still praise and rejoice in the Lord, even amid our greatest hardships.
I designed our He is Still Good piece to serve as a reminder of the Lord’s faithfulness in all things. Habakkuk 3:17-18 sparked my inspiration for this new collection.
No matter what happens, the Lord will always be with us and protect us. This verse also reminds us that we are called to rejoice even in our sufferings, which is immensely difficult but possible if we delight in the Lord our God.
Our Tears collection is based on Psalm 56:8.
The Lord sees us in our sorrow and hears each and every one of our cries like a prayer. In Him we find peace and refuge. This teardrop shaped piece features a cross similar to the ones on our Always Present collection pieces to remind us that He indeed is always present even in times of great sorrow.
One of our main focuses for 2024 is serving- our customers, community and one another. During our recent retreat, we decided to direct more focus on community outreach and ministry engagements. We are excited to take the next step in that direction by working with the following three ministries and organizations, with the hope to carry out the Great Commission and serve our community. I’m blessed to know several individuals involved in these ministries and am honored to have the opportunity to support them in their efforts.
The 516 Project is a non-profit Christian construction ministry located in Fredericksburg, VA and committed to working with churches, businesses, and individuals to share the love of Jesus with those in need and positively impact the community by glorifying God through service.

Eight Days of Hope is a Christian disaster relief organization inspired by 1 Peter 4:10, which says, “As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace” (ESV). Volunteers gather to use their unique, God-given gifts to love and serve those impacted by natural disasters. Learn more about volunteering here.
Each of these organizations represents how everyone has at least one gift they can use to uniquely share the Gospel and serve the Lord. We would love for you to join us in serving the Lord, supporting the community, and fulfilling the Great Commission through engagement with ministries like these.
