2020 was a year of great trials for our family, as it was for many. For us, it was a year filled with many Doctor visits trying to figure out what was causing my Husband's body to fail him. He began to lose feeling in his hands, his muscles began to atrophy, and his right arm began to shrink from the muscle loss and the right side of his body wasn’t functioning properly. From the outside he looked like a healthy man, but on the inside things were slowly falling apart. It took months of countless tests in search of a diagnosis. Being a contractor who used his hands and arms to lift daily, the nerve and muscle pain became excruciating. With advice from Doctors in February 2020, he needed to step away from home remodeling as lifting heavy things could cause more severe nerve damage.
In March 2020, we were thrown into quarantine from the worldwide pandemic. As many, it left us now both at home with no jobs. My Husband couldn’t use his hands due to the pain and numbness, but I could! Being home gave me the chance to craft again. I hadn't picked up my crafting tools since 2010 when my mom and I closed our family Scrapbook Store. It was in those moments, that I knew I wanted to bring back our family business name and create things again. This time I wanted to sell things that were meaningful to me and with purpose.
God created me to create, and my heart has always spoken through my hands! We are always STRONGER when we work TOGETHER and for the good of the Lord.
I ended up creating t-shirts for my Husband and I that said, STRONGER TOGETHER. God then put it on my heart to share it, spread it and create it in support of my Husband's health, during a time when we were really struggling financially.
When we remain faithful to God's plans for us, He gives us peace that can surpass all understanding. It's during our time of struggles and waiting when God is truly up to something. This is when He is preparing us for everything that lie ahead!
Today, my Husbands health is slowly being restored. Yet he still has many limitations, we remain faithful to Gods plan and purpose for our lives. I continue to create, just with a much deeper purpose these days! I'm excited to see where God takes us on this journey, and I hope you’ll stick around and follow us as our story continues and I continue to Create with Purpose.
