Birthing The Fabric Beautique™ - Where It All Began!
Welcome to The Fabric Beautique ™. This blog is about the birthing of a vision God gave me that I did not realize until I recently was connected to my Purpose. Purpose in my eyes is a BIG thing, so I do not take this journey lightly. Every word I type is prayed about first and I pray that what comes across this blog is received on good ground to become fruitful and raise up in someone’s Spirit as a point of contact to lay at God’s feet to allow God to reveal to you your purpose, your journey in this thing called living.
The name ‘The Fabric Beautique ™’ was given to me over 10 years ago. As a matter of fact, it was this along with another business venture God gave me at the same time, but because I didn’t know what ‘The Fabric Beautique ™ was all about I moved forward with the other business venture (which you can learn more about here). The other venture lined up with my gifts and talents in the corporate sector. Feel free to click here to learn more and join that email list if you are a business owner or know someone that is.
Growing up my mother taught me how to sew. I developed a passion for sewing because of her and watching her sew. However, once high school hit naturally my attention shifted to boys, hanging out and doing teenager stuff – LOL! Fast forward a few years…well over a decade later, I had bought a sewing machine and dabbled back in it but still it never stuck. It was not until recently that God ignited the fire back into my Spirit. When I say ignite, it was like a FIRE in my bones, it kept me up at night, I cried, I toiled with “really God, you really want me to do this”.
It was through the most traumatic storm in my life that God told me, “now is the time”. Of course I thought, not now God, not now! This storm was the separation I was experiencing in my marriage and not knowing where it was headed, as well as unemployment. I will tell you during the storm, I cried and screamed many nights in my pillow because the storm was too heavy to bear. I used a pillow as my prop to lay my journal on to write, to prophesy and minister to myself as the Holy Spirit led. It was really a connection to God like no other. How could I get not only comfort from sleeping on but also comfort from journaling the voice of God through the use of a pillow?
Well, God gave me the vision to create the Prayer and Devotional Pillow (patent pending) and I could not be more grateful that God sought to use me and at a time such as this. My praise report is not only is my marriage restored, but I'm gainfully employed and have this business. While the road as an entrepreneur is not easy, I will say, it's very fulfilling because I am walking in my purpose and learning so much along the way.
" For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you. And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart. And I will be found of you, saith the Lord: and I will turn away your captivity, and I will gather you from all the nations, and from all the places whither I have driven you, saith the Lord; and I will bring you again into the place whence I caused you to be carried away captive" - Jeremiah 29:11-14, KJV
