Last year God had put something very strongly in my heart about helping women in countries with gender inequality and supporting orphans. It was overwhelming to see the size of what God was calling me to do. Then this January I finally took a trip to Honduras to see if we could start there, since I had personally seen and experience the need there. I am not kidding, I got off the plane and had no idea where to start, I had nothing. I walked out of the airport and looked up at God and said, “God I am here, and I have no idea where to go or what to do, but if this is something you are calling me to do then it will work.” Long story short I came back with all the information I needed to help about 5-10 women have fair trade jobs and found multiple orphanages that we could support. I had my answer, then I came home, and all I could do is think of how I couldn’t do it. It had to be a mistake; I couldn’t do it all.
Through the roller coaster of owning a business I have had some real highs and some bad lows, this time was probably the lowest yet. I had goals for Elohim + Nim; I felt that we should have met them by now. My family is having some hard times. I had goals for myself that I was not even closing to meeting and I felt like I couldn’t take another step. Now I had a new task that I could fail at; I just shut down.
This was all so overwhelming until God gave me a message. Sometimes fear can keep us from all the things God is trying to do not only in our lives but also in the lives of others around us. Finally, God gave me a promise from Isaiah 41:10 “fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” So now we are back on!
I don’t think this means things will be perfect through out the whole journey, but I have hope and motivation. Hope that I know I am not alone in the walk. The motivation that I have a task to help other who need it.
I am currently working on producing samples of the design we will launch Mid Spring-early Summer. Our customers will decide which styles we add to our store for preorder or through our brand new quarterly Esther Box. All designs will be unique to our store and limited quantities. The looks are made for a timeless style that is focused on quality. We will focus on curating a selection of quality pieces to become essential pieces of your closet.
Each style, both in store and in our Esther box will help create jobs for women in countries with high rates of gender inequality. A percentage of each sale will be used to provide supplies to orphanages both locally and in the country of production.
We will have more details on our Esther box and give you a sneak peek of the styles after we receive our samples. For now here is an article from 225 Magazine about our project (Click Here) and how amazing are our featured images by Whitney Marie Photography (Check Her Out)!
Due to variation in designs and brands some styles may vary from these measurements but you can still use them as a guide. For a more precise measurement refer to the product description for more details or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for any questions.
