Her Story
Wife to a fantastic Christian man, Mum to 4 growing young men, Sister, Daughter, Sister in Christ. Thomas and I have been married since 1995 and have been fortunate to spend time in other places in the world. Friendship is valued and the family of Christ has always been part of our travels. Our boys are varying ages so we have challenges at all levels but enjoy their developing personalities. I started my faith journey at 21 and have been looked after by God in many ways since then. I know he'll answer any questions I have left when I see Him in heaven.
Her Wisdom

Look into this Christianity stuff earlier!

Be easier on myself as I grew my business.

Work and plan to have a better work /family balance than I did when I started.

Learn that it's OK to say NO to work earlier.

My business is a service that helps people with their hobby, however it's not my place to make their hobby affordable.  I still deserve to be paid appropriately for my work.

A good friend hassled me to review my pricing structure as that had not happened for 4 years.  Now I do this on a regular basis.

I can be in business and still be able to be in ministry - this only recently.

Plan your processes and see if you can spot the pitfalls.

Have a policy about returns or client satisfaction.

Be clear about your costs, you are providing a service that they can't or won't do for themselves.

Self driven education is vital, practice a lot.  Make your own quilts and items.
