Advancing God's Kingdom one simple act of kindness at a time in order to restore hope in others and turn hearts toward JESUS.

Hello and welcome to my shop! My name is Vicki. I'm a wife, mother, daughter of the most high king, sister, cousin, aunt and friend. I'm passionate about my family and I'm on fire for the Lord! I am a kingdom builder and a 2 time breast cancer survivor. I believe in changing hearts and impacting others, one person at a time.

I started my company 10 years ago making simple leather bracelets. My vision was to impact the kingdom while also allowing me to continue to be a stay-at-home mom to our 5 kiddos. While the vision has stayed the same, the journey has been an interesting.

God first gave me a vision to make a breast cancer bracelet in the early morning hour in August of 2010, as I was swimming laps at a local gym. Little did I know that I would be diagnosed with breast cancer just 2 months later. On October 19, 2010, the year I turned 40, I was diagnosed with DCIS, a form of breast cancer in which the only treatment is a mastectomy. I underwent a bilateral mastectomy on November 30, 2010 with subsequent reconstruction.

During my reconstruction and after, I continued to pray for God to reveal my story. I have been blessed to be able to share with others who have gone through and are going through breast cancer. I have also been inspired to expand my bracelet designs.

Recently, I was diagnosed with breast cancer again. This time around I had to go through chemotherapy, surgery and radiation. Through it all, I have been thankful for my trials. I always remember what the Bible says in 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18, which says "Be joyful always; pray continuously; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus."

When you purchase one of my bracelets, you get a "prayer and a blessing". I pray for the person who will be wearing the bracelet when I'm making it. I also bless people with the proceeds from the bracelets. I often get asked if I donate to a certain cause, but the answer is no. I am in the business of advancing God's kingdom by restoring hope in others and turning hearts toward Jesus. Simply put, my mission is to intentionally bless others through random acts of kindness in order to impact others and advance God's kingdom.
