To see imperfect women bring Jesus into the everyday.

our mission

well hello!

But more than that, we knew what WE most needed. We needed community. We needed solid Christian friendships. We were pretty much a mess.

We used to be very far from God – living life our own way, running away from pain and toward pleasure, getting into all sorts of things that seem “normal” to the world. But they were things that left us empty and broken.

Today, after experiencing God’s healing and transformative work in our lives, we are deeply dependent on Jesus and have truly never felt more at peace. We have been changed from the inside out. A relationship with Jesus can do that.

This was our story: experiencing incredible transformation from truly knowing Him. And we want the very same for you, too.

We realized there was a gap for Christian women our age, and we wanted to fill it. 

We Believe

maker of heaven and earth, eternally existent in three persons: the Father Almighty, Jesus the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

we believe in one God,

comprising the Old and New Testament to be the inspired, infallible, authoritative, and complete Word of God. We believe that the Bible is the final authority on all matters pertaining to faith in God and the basis for all Christian teaching.

we believe the entire bible

in His eternal existence with the Father, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His triumphant ascension to the Father, and in His promised return in power and glory.

We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ,

in Jesus Christ alone and in his substitutionary sacrifice to satisfy God’s demand for judgment of sin, providing justification for every repentant sinner.

we believe that salvation is found through faith

who enables the Christian to be in personal relationship with God and who empowers the Christian to live a godly life.

we believe in the present ministry of the holy spirit

all those He has saved into the likeness of Jesus through the power of the scriptures, through prayer, through blessings, through suffering, and through the influence of other believers.

We believe God seeks to progressively shape

of followers of Jesus and in the unity and necessity of the local church under the lordship of Jesus Christ.

we believe in the spiritual unity

the Lord our God with all our hearts, all our souls, all our minds, and all our strength. We believe it is equally important to love one another as we love ourselves.

We believe the greatest commandment is to love

Nicole here, so glad you popped by! My journey into graphic design started 8 years ago at Emily Carr University. I'm passionate about using my keen eye for detail to communicate messages creatively, and I love using the skills God gave me to serve His kingdom through visual stories that resonate. On the weekend, you might find me snuggling with my nieces or sipping orange pekoe while painting in my loft.
