Living an ART filled life...“Creativity is a God-given ability to take something ordinary and make it into something special. It is an openness to doing old things new ways…The creative spirit is part of our heritage as children of the One who created all things. And nurturing our creativity is part of our responsibility as stewards of God’s good gifts.” - Emilie Barnes, The Spirit of Loveline

Christmas Canvas inspired by Altar’d State…a Boutique with a Mission

Altar'd State Inspired Canvas

A friend of mine recently told me of a new store that arrived in town…An artfully crafted boutique that is comparable to Anthropology, but definitely more affordable.  The COOLEST thing about this store is their heart.

Below is an expert from their website…

People often ask us why? The answer is simple, to give back. It is not just what we do, it is who we are. We want to do more than provide fashionable alternatives to young women who want to make a difference. We want to inspire a movement to stand out – for good.

We give in any way we can. Whether it’s through “Give Back” brands, our Mission Monday program, funding employee volunteer hours, or various outreach opportunities, we strive to constantly contribute to the world around us.

Along with beautiful, modest, vintage inspired apparel, they carry unique home decor, fashion accessories, and even stock a few inspirational “reads.”  As I walked through their shop this week, my son said, “Hey Mom, there’s your book!”

He was referring to a book I have used to mentor young girls called “Redefining Beautiful” by Jenna Lucado.

This really blew me away!  It is a book that helps young women uncover the lies they believe about themselves to reveals the fully  accepted, forgiven, chosen, unique and loved creation God made them to be.

A clothing store that cares about their customers…

that reaches beyond the dollar to give back to the community and to the world.

I REALLY support that! I hope you will too:)
