Ladies Inspiration Day in MD with Speaker Isabelle Williamson


If you live in the Metro DC area you won’t want to miss the Ladies Inspiration Day this Saturday from 9 AM-1 PM at University Park Church of Christ. It will be a fun day full of fellowship. I happen to personally know the speaker Isabelle Williamson who is just a truly gifted and dynamic presenter who really speaks into women’s hearts. You will love her delivery, her message, and her humor! The topic is, “Stay Calm and Serve.” In our busy lives and hurried society that we live in I think this topic is right on time for so many of us.

Registration and breakfast start at 8:00 AM. Hope you can make it you will definitely be blessed!

The Address is:

6420 Adelphi Road Hyattsville, MD 20782

*Childcare is available all the more reason to come!

Are You Having A Church Event? A Women’s Retreat? I Have the Perfect Gift for Your Attendees!


One of my newly discovered passions in the last couple years has been creating handcrafted cards. I love the simplicity of making a card that gives an encouraging message that uplifts of the receiver. As I mentioned in previous posts I’m at a point in my life where I’m ready to think outside of the box and to pursue endeavors that enrich my spirit and is meaningful to others. So, I’m giving a second life to, A Sweet Refuge,the name I have chosen to represent my card business. Why A Sweet Refuge? I believe words are powerful. When we use words to inspire, encourage, and motivate they can evoke a sweet refuge even if for a short time.

If you are having an event or if your church is having a conference, a retreat, or even a ladies luncheon these cards are the perfect simple gift for your attendees. I decided to put a spin on the cards and add a lovely linen pouch with an emblem to give it a sweet feminine touch. You can also use the pouch to add additional items for your guests to take home. If  you’d like to see some of the cards and products I have please visit my website, A Sweet Refuge.”  Below is an example of the recent cards I did for the Ladies Inspiration Day at my church (I produced 108 cards). I was also blessed to be able to sell them at Kefa Cafe a popular coffee shop in Silver Spring, MD where they sold out.

If you are interested in receiving a sample or discussing how you can distribute these cards at your next event, please email me by using the Contact Form on the right hand side of the blog. You can also purchase them separately. I’ll be updating the inventory in the next couple weeks. Thank you and I hope one day I’ll be sending a card to you!

Fun Friday With the Kids Take Them to See Hop!

Anya and I love Fun Fridays! Fun Friday is our day to relax, kick back and have some fun! We love the movies and although I’m not a big fan of the astronomical ticket prices, it is a nice treat. This Friday we’re going to see Hop a movie about a bunny who isn’t quite ready to be the Easter Bunny and decides to leave Easter Island and go on an adventure of his own. Below is the link and it seems appropriate for kids! So many kids movies actually aren’t kid movies. Hope you enjoy your fun Friday!
