Nothing Like Handmade

I personally have bought several pieces and I am never disappointed! To hold a spoon I know was carved lovingly and prayerfully has an indescribable feeling ♥️ truly I cannot describe it adequately.

 Custom Muslin Swaddle

I commissioned Sydney, to make this specialty for the son we fervently prayed for in a season of learning complete dependence on God. She prayed over every aspect of this creation and every scripture that was carefully written to each corner and inside. ⁣

And yesterday, I held it in my hands and I was reminded that God is over me, my family, our house! ⁣I needed that!
