let me introduce you to courtney
courtney & i met through my friend ashley.
ashley & i met through our blogs.
funny thing though, courtney grew up around the corner from my home.
she graduated from the same high school my girls attend
danced at the studio where caroline now dances
was mentored a few years ago by the very same woman who mentored me over 20 years ago
& the list goes on.
it's just yet another confirmation to me that the blogging world is awesome.
otherwise, despite all those connections, we may have never met!
courtney & i met at the atlanta market back in the spring
when the seed for her company was just being planted.
she dropped by last week with her new products & i was blown away.
less than 9 months & here she is birthing her new baby,
they currently feature two products that i am in love with.
the first is a set of scripture cards
the colors are beautiful
the verses are powerful yet simple to learn
& they come with a little easel for easy display.
the second product is a set of money jars.
three jars will come in their own little stand.
the chalkboard stickers on front are blank & you and your child
are able to decide what to write on them.
as confessed yesterday, i've done a poor job of teaching my girls
good money management. despite my failure, they're actually already doing well in making wise choices
& already have a heart for giving.
caroline spent a while trying to decide what her jars would be used for.
apparently she's saving up for a phone :)
in no time she had taken ownership of her set
& was so excited to learn a verse
empty her wallet.
sunday night at church is when she brought her jar
and as the offering bucket was passed
she opened up that little jar labeled "offers for people who need it"
and cheerfully gave everything.
it's so exciting for me to watch courtney's dream to help equip moms
with creative & functional ways to teach their children
come to fruition!
