This might surprise you, but I grew up in a small town in Texas with a goal of becoming a doctor. After spending 20+ years in school working to make this dream a reality and applying to medical school, I realized God was leading me down a different path.
My heart changed when I started realizing that I could remember what an actress would wear to the Oscars, but I couldn’t remember a disease – which is pretty important if you want to be a doctor, right?!
So I did the hardest thing imaginable, in my mind. I listened to that still small voice instead of my own and dove head first into the fashion industry and opened a women’s specialty boutique. During my years owning the store I realized that there weren’t enough companies that were being bold in their faith so along with my husband, Ken, I wanted to do something about it.
