As we embark upon the end of the year, I look back at what I’m grateful for in my life.
I’m grateful for the obvious things like a roof over my head, my husband, my dog, my family and friends, my career and waking up every day healthy. But I’m also grateful for quiet, brisk mornings cuddling with my dog and a cup of tea. I’m grateful for the people who have allowed me to advance my career and believed in me even when I didn’t. I’m grateful for the leaves turning color, the first rainfall and the flowers blooming because it shows us that change is inevitable, but beautiful. I’m grateful for the game of golf because it has taught me everything about life, business, people and myself. I’m grateful I have the opportunity to make a difference, lead the way for change and help others.
Most of all, I’m grateful for freedom. The freedom to choose and be whatever I want. Sometimes, we forget that not everyone has the privilege and luxury of being free. That’s why this holiday season, I’m so excited to collaborate with 3 Strands Shop!
Every new year, I pick a “word of the year” to help motivate and inspire me. For the past few years, my word has been purpose. It’s a reminder that with everything I do, I strive to do it with purpose, so there is meaning behind my decisions and actions.
It’s no wonder I’ve been so drawn to 3 Strands Shop, as they give us a way to shop with purpose. I love that every time I look down at my wrist, I’m reminded of how blessed I am to be free and that wearing this bracelet is helping someone who once wasn’t, or who is at risk of their freedom taken away.
Unfortunately, it’s not just third world countries that experience human trafficking.
“There are nearly 2 million children worldwide exploited in the global sex trade; each year, as many as 100,000-300,000 American children are at risk of being trafficked for commercial sex in the United States.”

I am grateful that just by merely wearing a gorgeous, handmade bracelet, I am helping in the fight against human trafficking both around the world and right here in the United States.

“For those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength; they will soar on wings like eagles, they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.”
— Isaiah 40:31
