Introducing: Seeds of Life (Sol) Jewelry

You never know who you’ll meet at a Little League game…

Eight years ago, I spoke at a local MOPS meeting, sharing that the sacrifices of motherhood result in rich, full, abundant life. This was the first time I spoke publicly about the idea.

Little did I know, it would be the seed of my book, Expect Something Beautiful: Finding God’s Good Gifts in Motherhood.

The idea also resonated deeply with one of the MOPS moms: she wanted to create a piece of jewelry to portray a mom’s life-giving sacrifices. Although she emailed me about her idea at the time, I didn’t grasp what was going on behind the scenes. I thought, “Oh how beautiful!” and life went on.

Fast-forward to THE week I was all aflutter in expectation of my first book coming out. I happened to be volunteering in the concession stand for my son’s Little League game and got to chatting with the other volunteer, Erica. (Her son is on the team, too.)

Eventually, we put two-and-two together: she is the MOPS mom who created the jewelry!!

Erica told me the MOPS talk grew into a line of jewelry named Seeds of Life (Sol).

I told her it grew into a book.

Tonight, as the boys played ball, I had the blessing of giving Erica an early copy of my book and she gave me a pair of Sol earrings.

They are stunning.

I am astounded at God’s goodness to all of us as his daughters, as mothers, and as artists.

Absolutely astounded.
