2014 – ’16 has been a time of huge changes for our family- immediate and extended. For my pack of 5, we had twins, a few job changes, I left my career of 8 years to stay home, my husband got his real estate license, we sold our house, moved out of state, I was finally diagnosed for my anxiety, among other small things.
Beyond that,in our extended families, there have been more international moves, out of country moves, tragic accidents, and more. With that there have also been many new and happy memories, milestones met by the kids, and lots of love and so much laughter in between the tears. It has been a time where we not only relied on each other to make it through- but our faith as well.
We’ve been stretched and tested and humbled and reminded that God is in control. I am such a perfectionist and that has been such a BIG struggle for me; to, as the saying goes, “let go and let God.” But it is so true. Life is full of curve balls and as much as we try to plan, things come up and you just have to ride the wave.
I was fortunate enough to collaborate with Krafty Kash designs, through an awesome platform (you’ve probably heard me mention before) called Collabor8. I saw their beautiful handmade custom bible and map jewelry and I knew I wanted to tell you guys about it! I spoke with Kristina and she let me choose a word or scripture, and 2 charms to go with it for my piece. I knew instantly what I wanted.
For my custom necklace, I chose Psalm 46:10 “Be still and know that I am God.” And my kids birthstones. She was gracious enough to include 2 of the March stones for my twins, along with the December for my oldest.
This verse has carried me through the past couple of years. When I feel like I want to lose hope, I am reminded that God is in control and all the steps are ordered. Kristina was an absolute joy to work with, friendly and accommodating.
I can’t wait to purchase more pieces from Kraftykash! I will treasure my necklace forever. Check out their beautiful handmade jewelry at KraftyKash or on Instagram @kraftykash !
