You are my inspiration. Yes, you. If you are reading this, you are my inspiration. You might be thinking “she doesn’t even know me”. Yes, you are right, I don’t. What I do know is this: you are a child of God, just like me and that means we are family. There isn’t anything I wouldn’t do for family.
My hope is to encourage, inspire and challenge you to be everything He (God) created you to be in a unique way. The Jo-niC ( Jō nēk) way. It’s beautiful and amazing. How do we get there? Well, first we have to know what He says about us. What we see in the mirror is not what He sees. Oh no, far from it. Sister, His words are truth. Can I call you sister? After all we are family. I have met so many women who tell me how much they love God but they don’t quite understand the Bible. That was me! Oh, was that me. Now, do you understand? We are family and we are alike, this is where our similarities begin. I don’t promise that transformation will be easy but I will promise you that I will help you discover your truth in a cool, fun, and beautiful way. We all need someone cheering us on, that’s who I want to be for you. I want to share my story because this is where it all begins.
My inspirational story and inspirational jewelry to unveil the inspirational you! Let’s discover who God created you to be by declaring, wearing and sharing biblical truth. Let’s reclaim the I am that lives in you! Ready? Strap in sister!
A little more about me…
I was born in Corpus Christi, Texas and now a current resident of the Rio Grande Valley, Texas. Maybe you can relate, I am a daughter, mother, employee, volunteer, friend, wife, and sister(just to name a few). I openly and humbly share how I overcame the storms of life, from my roots of a category 3 hurricane to my unforgettable landfall, navigating my way through the paths before me; the calm center of the storm or the whirlwind of a funnel that could ultimately destroy everything I touched. My signature landfall was at the feet of the love of my life – GOD. From that day forward my new life purpose (that I believe was bestowed upon me during my darkest, humbling, yet freeing moments) is to share my gift of the TRIO by sharing my personal TRIO Testimony, designing inspirational jewelry-I am TRIO Collection and by sowing back by partnering with like minded organizations. All this with one hope; to inspire you to be all God designed you to be.
2013: My heart craved nourishment and fulfillment. I had an unexplained and unsettling hunger and thirst for something unseen and unknown. The thought occurred to me that it would be cool to create unique, one-of-a-kind bracelets while bonding withmy oldest daughter over the summer. Little did I know my heart’s cravings were much more than a summer project. The summer started and quickly ended; however, my desire to continue beading was embedded in the strands of beads that remained. I began to notice that my youngest daughter was fascinated by the colorful beads. Did she see more than the vibrant hues and textures of the beads?
My beading continued. A dedication to fasting, reading my bible and prayer was pursued. What appeared stable in my life was revealing itself to be fragile, unsteady and wavering. It was time to place faith in the things that are unseen. Humbling moments occurred and a true display of raw, rare honesty and emotion was at the forefront of life. As the fast neared its end, it was revealed to me that Jesus was the thirst and hunger in life. He was the hunger and thirst that she was craving and only He could truly satisfy. During this time,
He said to me, “I am the bread of life, he who comes to me shall never hunger, and he who believes in me shall never thirst.” John 6:35. The moment changed my life!
I believe a gift was bestowed upon this project during this time? I was inspired, moved and was now contemplating sharing a vision that was planted in my new-found heart, now beating to be expressed. This is when I began to refer to the bracelets as declarations of truth! The only thing that could make the fervor even stronger was to bead spirituality into each design (design).
The Triple-stranded (TRIO ) bracelet was born during this time. Each TRIO is designed with 3 elements to express 3 traits that helped me overcome my darkest moments: TRUE- FAITH, RARE -HONESTY and ICONIC- INDIVIDUALITY and declaring the Oh I AM that God created me to be. Knowing that True faith is essential, the metal was chosen to express this essential trait. The one thing that is truly unseen. As sturdy and precious as the metal is, more so is your faith. The pearl was selected to express Rare honesty. As rare as a pearl is, so is the honesty that can ultimately set you free. Lastly, the hand-picked beads are an expression of Individual uniqueness. I AM declarations of biblical truth are adorned on each TRIO. My vision is that everyone declare biblical truth in their life so that they too discover the I AM God created each of us to be. I am still a mom, sister and friend but most importantly, I am a child of God, I am fearfully wonderfully made, I am loved, I am His masterpiece and so are YOU and that’s truth-biblical truth! Let’s declare, wear, and share biblical truth together; so that we become the I am He created us to be!
All women to live a lifestyle of truth and freedom.
