It’s been far too long since I’ve posted something here.
Truthfully, I’ve avoided it.
I finally wrote a long, rambling, healing post the other day – and I doubt I’ll ever publish it. But it did help me to work through some of the emotions of the last year.
Through the process of starting our non-profit, we were deeply hurt by people we trusted.
And I ran away from it all for awhile.
And then my guilt consumed me, as I knew there were so many people who were hoping to help us get started.
To all of you – I apologize.
But here’s the thing. Sometimes, you receive a calling. You answer that call, expecting it to look and feel a certain way. What if you answered, and discovered that it was something entirely different?
I know that I am called to do something for the children of Africa. And I thought that it meant that I should start up an orphanage, begin a non-profit, etc.
The steps I took last year led me to this revelation: it is far easier to be a for-profit business that gives back than it is to start a non-profit. And that’s what is in store for me at this point.
Thus, the Wild Ruffle Shop was born. We’re working with others to give 20% of profits to charities we believe in. We’d love to work with YOU and your charity (you can email us at email@example.com to learn more).
We have big plans in store for how we’d like to use our talents to change the world. We’d love to have you along for the ride.
And you can pray. You can pray that our eyes would be open to the plans that were meant for our lives, that we would see the path we were meant to walk. Thank you for walking this journey with us!
