Hi! I am a new believer, and I came to Christ in 2018. My life has never been the same since. I love learning about the faith and how truly amazing our God is. I hope to inspire my generation to the amazing life of being a follower of Christ.
Description of company/business/and or group: I do photography of many kinds. My passion is to capture the love and emotion behind every photo. I also blog weekly messages to teach and encourage those about The Word and God’s love. I really don’t know what this will turn into but I’m so excited to watch this grow and continue to shine in the light of the Lord
Do you have a mission statement? Not yet
What is your key bible verse, either business or personal, and why?
Not really a verse, but the book of Hosea. That was the book that grabbed my heart and pulled me to Christ. I had never read the Bible before last year. So I was at a retreat and we were ready about how Gomer and Israel has turned their backs on God, how they created idols and worshiped false gods. How no matter how much Hosea loves Gomer and God loved Israel, they would still turn themselves out like a prostitute. Suddenly I realized... that was me. I was Gomer and Israel.. I was miserable in my life, my marriage was in shambles. All because I was searching for something or someone to fill the void in my heart... but who I truly needed was Jesus Christ in my heart.
That night after I read the entire book of Hosea- I accepted Christ into my heart and I never longed to fill that void again. Because I was full.
Where do you find your inspiration?
Through God, and my husband. I came home one day and told him I think I was the be a photographer. He didn’t question or hesitate, we went out bought a new camera, bought a desk top to work on, got a new camera bag and all the full extras. I get nervous because I haven’t really had many people wanting my business. But I feel like God is with me, so I will not fail.
What encouragement can you share with our readers?
Wherever you are in your faith- whether a new believer or you’ve been one for 60 years- always remember to live in his light. God wants us to live as a representation of Him. So even if you are going through a dark time in your life, remember that God never lets us walk alone, he is beside us, holding our hand through the good and the bad. Trust him with everything, give it all to Him and he will guide you through thick and thin.
Any additional information about your company that you would like to add? I want to say a special thinks to Brittany Frey, because she truly inspired me to jump head first into this. She’s taken her time to guide me and teach me so many things. I will continue to learn and grow as I become a more seasoned photographer, but I couldn’t have done it without her.
Finally, we would love to continue the cycle of celebrating others who are using their gifts to create amazing products, who do you follow and love to shop from? Truthink!
Thank you so very much Beth for sharing your beautiful heart and testimony! We are so very excited for you and your new journey ahead!!!
Love & Grace,
