Brief personal introduction (in first person), saying hello to our readers:
I'm married to my high school sweetheart & we have 3 beautiful babies + a fur ball named Scout. Besides my precious family I love Jesus, Chick-fil-a & sweet tea!
Description of company/business/and or group:
Hand Lettering | Custom Design
I love collaborations; creating graphics, logos and custom pieces for people and businesses.
My passion is wedding + event pieces!
I love all the little details that come together to make up the big picture.
What is your key bible verse, either business or personal, and why?
“Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.” 1 Peter 4:10
What prompted you to create a faith-based business/and or group?
Becoming a mom for the third time!..After a week shy of a year of working full time at my dream job, Embrace Grace Inc. I stepped away for a season to be a full time Mama! The Lord really spoke to me about this season being full of joy! Not joy just from being at home with my 3 babies but joy in going back to being able to just create, write & dream with Him. God has placed a desire in my heart & has encouraged me through friends + family to begin In The Details, Creative Design where I can put my hand lettering skills & creativity to great use!
Where do you find your inspiration?
Family & friends, scripture & music!
How do you bring God’s Word into your products?
I love incorporating verses by putting a creative spin on it by adding doodles or taking the message from the verse & making it into a saying
What is the biggest lesson God has taught you through your business/group?
Since starting In The Details just out of obedience towards God, He’s told me two things; have faith & don’t worry about anything.
At first I was afraid of saying yes and starting up a creative business. I had a fear I wasn’t qualified enough, what I had to offer wasn’t good enough...I actually had a request for a logo rebranding job - my first “job” since starting In the Details & I didnt answer it for a week because I was SO afraid of saying yes! Once I did, the orders started coming in from all over & I’ve been able to do really cool collaborations and create beautiful things for people!
Also, with the don’t worry about anything - He’s shown me HE will provide. From being asked to come to open houses, to people offering to help me grow my business and offer their services free of charge, to classes I get invited to be a part of that help me network, to a man covering the full cost of my business cards + flyers because he felt God tell him to...God truly has kept true to His promise & it’s only been 4 months in!
What encouragement can you share with our readers?
If God is telling you to take a leap, take that leap of faith. Obedience = Blessings!
What He has instore for you and your life is so much greater than the plans and agenda we have set for ourselves.
Any additional information about your company that you would like to add?
I can also do digital hand lettering work too!
Finally, we would love to continue the cycle of celebrating others who are using their gifts to create products that bring honor to God. What is your favorite Christian shop and why?
It’s not really a shop but a community on Instagram - a sweet friend started it up called, “Our Creative Village.” It’s a group of Christian women all linking arms to come together to network and encourage one another as we grow as creatives, women & business owners. It’s awesome having a group of ladies that are their to help build each other up and cheer you on as you succeed in your calling!
Thank you so much for sharing your amazing new business with us Kaitlyn! I wish you all the blessings and favor as you use your gifts and talents for His Kingdom!
