I’m truly grateful you’re here today. I’m Lauren, lover of Jesus , dark roast coffee, all things fair trade and handmade. Nearly ten years ago, I married my college sweetheart, who happens to be a pastor, and we have three littles that keep me seeking the Lord more than anything else in my life ever has, in the beautiful way that only motherhood can. We’ve been on a journey to adopt our fourth child through adoption since January 2013. That path took quite the unexpected turn after two years in January 2015, but God has held us near in the midst of some of the hardest days.
As a very broken teenager, I met Jesus and His grace and faithfulness continue to leave me breathless more than a decade later. Knowing Him has drawn out in me a deep desire to advocate for the least in the Kingdom and to give generously in return. My desire is that you’ll find Him here in this place.
The Heart Behind The Shop
My hope is that the Lord would be glorified in all the small, every day moments of my life. And I hope the same for the shop – that in little ways, these products would glorify Him. That’s why every MERCY iNK print, tee, and necklace is designed with the goal to point the recipient back to Him. And not only does this little shop help support our growing family and our adoption journey, but 10% of every sale is donated to a new Kingdom cause every month.
This shop is about way more than beautiful prints or more stuff. It’s about spreading Truth and Hope through Scripture prints and jewelry, and also putting that gospel to action by giving generously to Kingdom Things.
Thank you for being here. And thank you for being a giver!
