A new beginning to an exciting journey...

                         Anchored in Hope....

About a year ago I was given a small anchor pendant to put on my necklace from my dear friend Karla. Unfortunately it didn't fit on my necklace and I wasn't able to wear it. At the time I didn't give much thought to what the anchor really meant to me, but loved the pendant. 

Awhile back my friend Katie gave me a suggestion to have an anchor made out of metal art. She told me that anchors were starting to become popular but also reminded me of the verse in Hebrew 6:19 "We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure." After I had them made I had several people ask what the meaning of the anchor was. To be honest it was hard for me to explain. 

But in the last couple months God has continually put "Anchored in Hope" on my heart. It was one of those thoughts that came to me but I quickly brushed it off because I didn't feel equipped or qualified (and trust me I still don't!!) But God continued to impress it on my heart. 

So with that I stepped out in faith and God showed up. God had given me a desire to create a small business to sell the Hand-Made Haitian Metal (and hopefully other Haitian made items in the future).  I struggled with God and continual said, "But God I don't know anything about business or setting up an LLC." So God gently reminded me I don't have to have all the answers I need to have faith and trust that He will provide and if this is truly God's desire for my life, HE will provide. 
And of course GOD DID PROVIDE.  God continued to put people in my path. Through a friend he connected me with a lawyer who offered to create a LLC for me for free and has continued to be a great resource. He has put amazing woman in my life at Art 2 Heart who continue to support and guide me. He connected me with an amazing woman at Single Stone Studios who offered to create a logo for me for free and designs some of the pieces of artwork. He has given me amazing friends, family and acquaintances who have stepped up and said they want to help out however they can. I had to take the first step, but GOD SHOWED UP and continues to show up in amazing ways. 
God has been at work and I'm excited to tell you that  ANCHORED IN HOPE LLC. has been established! 

The mission of Anchored in Hope is to empower Haitian artisans to provide for their families with dignity. Our desire is to inspire hope for a better tomorrow through our reliance on the anchor that we have in Jesus Christ.

This world is a raging sea and every believer is like a ship on this journey through life. As long as Jesus is our captain we have hope as our anchor. This anchor while out of sight at the bottom of the sea is what keeps us steady through all of life's storms and trials. We have this Anchor and Hope no matter what life brings our way. 

Our needs: 
-Business Cards
-Postcards to be attached to each item sold
-Stores that are willing to sell our items
-Financial donations
-Prayer for wisdom, direction and connections to be made.

I recently came across this song and the words are beyond fitting for what we desire with "Anchored in Hope"
 Christ is our Hope. He is our Everything. He is our Anchor in the storm.

"Anchored" by Hillsong 

I have this hope
As an anchor for my soul
Through every storm
I will hold to You

With endless love
All my fear is swept away
In everything
I will trust in You

There is hope in the promise of the cross
You gave everything to save the world You love
And this hope is an anchor for my soul
Our God will stand

Unchanging One
You who was and is to come
Your promise sure
You will not let go

Your Name is higher
Your Name is greater
All my hope is in You

Your word unfailing
Your promise unshaken
All my hope is in You
