I can’t even express how proud I am to make this announcement.

I’m launching a new jewelry line







All proceeds to benefit rescued women and children.

Last year, I was driving to Melbourne Beach, when I felt God tell me to get off the highway and go to Bank of America. There He showed me a man, who worked there and told me to go speak to him. I didn’t know why. To get the conversation started I told him I was adding the VP name to the account. He asked the name of the account, and when I told him, he said, “So you are the reason I am working at this branch. God told me there was going to be someone coming, and I needed to help them. You are that person.”

He asked how he could be of help at Thread of Hope.

Fast forward to February 2017, I was in Savannah, walking down the street. As I was walking I felt God tell me to go into the jewelry store I was walking by and talk to the man inside and ask if he would be willing to make a piece of jewelry for Thread of Hope. I went in, and he turned out to be the owner of the jewelry store and a designer who made the jewelry himself. He told me he would love to help, but he didn’t have the time. I started to leave, but he called me back. He told me, “I have an idea. Why don’t you call this company,” as he gave me the name, “and give them your logo?”

I immediately got the vision of what the piece of jewelry would be and the design.

I don’t think I heard anything else the man said. I was so excited.

I left the store and told Ruth and my kids I have my design for the jewelry. It’s going to be our logo, and it’s going to be a bracelet! I called Lee to tell him about what happened. He told me, “Well, if you’re looking for a jeweler to make your design I have a friend that designs and makes jewelry.”

First, I can’t believe I’m designing jewelry! I can’t believe I have a complete line of my designs. I can’t believe it’s because I was obedient as crazy as it sounded to get off a highway and go inside a bank and specifically talk to a guy I didn’t know, and even crazier he knew he was there to meet someone he was to help. I can’t believe I was led to a jewelry shop in Savannah to ask a stranger about producing my jewelry in which I didn’t even have a design yet. The only purpose for going in was so I would get a vision of a bracelet as I’m talking to the man. I really can’t believe any of this myself. My children and Ruth lived it so I know I didn’t dream it.

Tonight, I humbly and proudly announce my jewelry line THE THREAD OF HOPE COLLECTION and my first piece in the collection RAHAB’S THREAD OF HOPE. This bracelet is a reminder that we, too, have hope because God loves those who are hopeless. His love is so great, reaching down to those who are hurting and miraculously delivering, restoring, and giving those who have been hurt and abused a second chance at life.

Please help me help women and children who have been rescued from sex trafficking to have an opportunity at life with new hope. I created this jewelry line for the sole purpose of raising funds to support these women and children who have been rescued from a horrific life. One hundred percent of the profits go to them. This high-end end piece of jewelry, priced according to other jewelry of its kind is stainless steel with PVD gold coating.

Psalm 37.23

In the next months, I will add another piece of jewelry to THE THREAD OF HOPE COLLECTION.  I can’t even express how excited I am to unveil this new adventure God has called me too.

Please know God’s plans for your life are exciting and beyond your wildest dreams. A life of total surrender and obedience is irresistible in the Potter’s hands. I love sharing my life on Facebook to encourage you.  Nothing is impossible when we decide to use our life to help others and live for Him. I hope you will purchase this beautiful bracelet. If you want it in 14k we can get it done too. Thanks for helping those who can’t help themselves. The bracelet comes in a beautiful jewelry box with free shipping within the USA and Canada.

Finally to my wonderful friend and his wife for supporting me from the moment I met him at the bank. The paths of the righteous are led of God. If Lee didn’t believe and obey what God showed him, we wouldn’t be rejoicing at what God did. What an amazing reminder of God’s hand as he leads and directs our footsteps in all our lives. I’m so excited I can’t believe what God’s doing in my life.

Please pray for me and Thread of Hope, Inc.

PRO-LIFE: Thread of Hope’s Position



We are Christians and love God with all our heart.  As those who claim to live for and love God, we choose to stand with God and hold to what is stated in 1 Corinthians 6:19-20, Don’t you realize that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who lives in you and was given to you by God? You do not belong to yourself, for God bought you with a high price. So you must honor God with your body.”

With that being said, as children of the Most High GOD, we align ourselves with the Bible, and we align our thoughts with GOD’s thoughts.  We do this by reading and studying HIS Word and finding out what HE has to say, to find out what HIS instructions are, to live by HIS decrees for HE is GOD and above HIM, there is no other; therefore, we live by the standards HE has set, not us.

pen-paper-1RE: ABORTION



WE BELIEVE each individual life was designed by the God Who created the Heavens and the Earth.  WE BELIEVE God alone is the Giver of Life, and WE BELIEVE He alone is the One Who Breathes Life into every person; and WE BELIEVE every person is fearfully and wonderfully made, created in the image of God.  Our beliefs are in accordance with the following Scriptures:

  • “Then God said, ‘Let us make human beings in our image, to be like us.'” -Genesis 1:26
  • “Then the LORD God formed the man from the dust of the ground. He breathed the breath of life into the man’s nostrils, and the man became a living person.” -Genesis 2:7
  • For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb.  I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.  My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.” -Psalm 139:13-16
  • “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.”  -Jeremiah 9:5

WE BELIEVE abortion is murder and to abort a life in the womb is to kill a creation made in the image of God, and WE BELIEVE one of the things God hates is “hands that kill the innocent.”  Our beliefs are in accordance with the following Scriptures:

  • “You must not murder.” -Exodus 20:13
  • “There are six things the Lord hates— no, seven things he detests: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that kill the innocenta heart that plots evil,  feet that race to do wrong, a false witness who pours out lies, a person who sows discord in a family.” -Proverbs 6:16-19
  • “So God created human beings in his own image. In the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.” -Genesis 1:27

Always remember God loves you,

and He has a plan for your life.


Much love to you all,
