The Big Give: The Big Reveal

Overwhelmed, terrified, untrusting. These feelings have fueled me. These feelings have kept me from pursuing what God has called me to. God has clearly spoken, so today I step out in faith. I know for some of you the wait is killing you. So....here we go!

Today I would like to announce that I will be starting a design business. What does that mean? You might wonder, well, I am not exactly sure myself. And for those wondering, I am NOT quitting my day job.

The last few years, I have fallen in love with…fonts. Yes, you read that clearly.  FONTS!  I am a regular Dafontaholic. You see I have always loved words. I love reading beautifully crafted words in novels. I love cleverly constructed word art. And for some strange reason the Lord has given me an “eye” for it. At least that is what people keep telling me.  

I am not sure what pursuing this business will look like. I’m not even an official business yet. I am still learning what I need to do and  crafting a plan. 

It still blows me away that this new business came out of a prayer to God asking what He wanted me to do for the Big Give. I had two main ideas. One idea was my “safe” idea. It involved baking and selling my FAVORITE holiday treat (totally from scratch and yes there is yeast involved). My other idea, well it seemed “risky”. If you know me, you know risky really isn’t my style. I am safe and practical. Yet God kept dragging me toward the risky side of things completely out of my comfort zone. It’s definitely not the first time I have created word art or prints. It really floors me that anyone might want to BUY what I make. I know that sounds really dumb, but it’s the truth.

As I have told some of my friends and family, I am overwhelmed by the sweet encouragement they have given me. I want each of you to know that God has used your encouragement to continue to confirm to me where He is leading. Thank you for being faithful to send a text, Facebook message, email, or have a conversation with me. 

So I begin this journey toward design with the Big Give. Exclusively for the Big Give I have created three prints for purchase. 

Each print is available in three different background colors: chalkboard, red, and green. You can purchase any print for $5. All proceeds will be given to the Miracle of Missions at First Euless. You can contact me for more information or to purchase a print. If you would like a color others than the ones listed, I would love to customize one just for you. Please note you are purchasing a digital download of this print, which you are then free to use as many times or as many ways as you would like!
