I’m Michelle. First off, I’m really grateful that you’re here. Thank you for supporting this dream and for cultivating connection with me in this new venture!
I’ve always loved cards, stationery, design and sending things 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, 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 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.
Feeling so grateful to be jumping in with you guys!
