I’m Michelle! I’m really grateful that you’re here. We all so desperately need encouragement and connection to do the work God has called us to. And my hope is that Bright Waters will do just that. We want to help you send those life giving words in a modern yet meaningful way that keeps our tribe going and growing.
I’ve always loved cards, stationery, design and sending cards to my friends. But it wasn’t until I was very sick in my second pregnancy that this idea came to mind. Friends reached out to me with their stories, concern and experiences which were similar to mine. And I realized I wasn’t alone. That others actually cared what happened to me (which was different than the story I was telling myself), and that I didn't need to be embarrassed or try to hide my messy life. Those connections were life giving. Freeing! To know that I'm not the only one who has been in this scary and uncertain place.
Bright Waters was a result of that time. In the midst of panic driven fear and sickness this idea to facilitate women reaching out to other women felt needed and necessary (not to mention fun :).
The Lord has put this on my heart to pursue and I'm excited to see where it goes. There is no way this introvert who fears what others think of her would on a normal day go out and start a business. But He doesn’t call us to stay in our comfort zones. So here it goes.
Thank you for supporting this dream. I pray that this business would serve you to love your people well!
Feeling so grateful to be jumping in with you guys!
