Exciting Endeavors!

Posted on

Well all, this isn’t my typical post as it is not orphan/child related. However, this post IS about exciting things taking place in the world!   Something near and dear to my heart…  Something God led…   Something important that will bless others while bringing something cool into creation.  I am pleased to introduce my friend, Adrienne.

Here is Adrienne’s story:

“This story begins 10 years ago when traveling to Africa on an AIDS awareness humanitarian effort. While in one village with our group of college age students, a woman came out of her tiny hut, and handed her baby to us.  This was one mother’s desperate attempt to give her child opportunity.  We knew we couldn’t take this child, but also knew we we would never forget that moment.  So although this is where our story begins, you get to be a part of choosing what happens now.  Join us as we build a sustainable partnership to provide African artisans safe income generation through a jewelry collection that you would be proud to buy, wear, give, or support.”  

Wow!  Can you imagine what it must have felt like for Adrienne to have to be in that heartbreaking situation?  This mother clearly was willing to break her own heart by giving away her child, so that her  child would have opportunities she could not provide.  Sadly, this is just one heart-wrenching account of what mothers and women face everyday in places such as Africa, where poverty is so prevalent.

After many years and much prayer, Adrienne and partner Lindsay came together to form the brainchild that is Wind Over Water.   Imagine my surprise when God spoke to Adrienne’s heart and she ended up snagging me into this wonderful whirlwind of a project which has blessed me more than I can say!  I have never worked so hard on something (aside from raising my children) so meaningful and rewarding.  I am beyond proud of each piece and wish to thank my cohorts for their advice, opinions, prayers and encouragement!   I am so very excited to see what God does for these invaluable women through Wind Over Water.

Wind Over Water Jewelry provides fashion-forward, baby-friendly and socially-minded jewelry options for mothers and women who watch over little ones as well!    The pieces are simple and clean while giving you a pop of color, and the unique eye catching asymmetrical designs have a  secret functional role in reminding mom on what side she last nursed.  Just flip the necklace over after nursing.  It also gives little fingers something visually stimulating to play with while holding your child, or during nursing or bottle feeding rather than pulling on your hair or shirt!  My daughter likes to scratch and pinch, so these necklaces are awesome!    No worries that they will break your favorite necklace by tugging on it anymore either!   Plus it is all non–toxic materials which are baby safe so you can feel good about them playing with it.

When you decide to support us either by becoming a backer, wearing our jewelry, sharing our cause, giving a piece to someone as a gift, or simply praying for us in this endeavor, know that your support is directly impacting the lives of the amazing women we have partnered with.   The women we hope to help.
