Hello Friends! Bobbi here... I just wanted to say a few things about Annie, our cuff maker extraordinaire here at MBC. She is not only an irreplaceable asset to the team but foremost one of my best friends whom I have the pleasure to doing life with. We are celebrating her two year anniversary with us this week- HOORAY!!! Read on for a few words from Annie herself.
We've also just launched the NEW cowhide cuff! Annie and I will be hosting a giveaway together so be sure to follow along on FB and Instagram for the details!
When my husband and I moved up here 9 years ago, the Lord gave me a job as a waitress that allowed me to be able to stay home with our kids. As time was getting closer to our youngest starting school, I was freaking out! I didn't want to waitress and be away at nights anymore and I had nothing else lined up to switch careers. At this time, two years ago, God brought one of my best friends (Bobbi) to me, asking me to make accessories for her at The Mason Bar Company. Crafting cuffs for MBC helped me transition into a day job while doing something that I love. :) One year later I was able to quit my night job of 7 years and open up my own Etsy shop, Thirteen Eleven Olive! So much worry and stress about switching careers was for nothing... God hears the desires of our hearts, doesn't He?
When I look back at different times in my life, each good and bad, I am overwhelmed at Gods grace. He's had a plan for me and my life from the day I was born... that is such a comforting and secure feeling. When the "not so peaceful times" arise, especially for someone like me who battles with anxiety, it's hard to get through the day. Anxiety strikes whatever piece of vulnerability that we have. You question all the things that God has made great in your life. But in Him, our Creator, we are free. We are saved by His grace and that is so relieving!
God has had his hand over my life, even when I didn't feel it! We can't see where He's taking us, but he loves us and has a plan for us. Our God is bigger than what we can see. He's with us during our joy, sorrow, confusion, sickness, self doubt, the good times and the bad. His love for us is unquenchable :)
I encourage you, trust Him to lead you, step by step each day :)
