Miriam Designs | Handmade & Hope-Filled Goods

"Little did I know how much I would learn from working alongside them... like how to laugh until it hurts, to allow hope to conquer my fear, and to experience the healing that comes through a community that loves unconditionally." - Gracie Moakler

Miriam Designs. What a beautiful find.

Honestly, I cannot even remember how I came across this, but I am sure it was somewhere along the lines of Steve Moakler, and learning about this organisation his wife was a part of.

As a lover of all things handmade/homemade with a defining purpose, I was immediately drawn to Miriam Designs and it's ethos... and of course, all the beautiful jewellery!

Here's a little bit about Miriam Designs:

"Miriam Designs is a group of women in Nashville, Tennessee who have incredible stories of survival, restoration, and hope. They help to train and employ women who have survived years on the streets and are working their way to a better life.

Our goal is to help provide work for women here in Nashville who have survived lives of prostitution, drug abuse, trafficking, or homelessness. We teach them a new skill and create a fun community for them to thrive in. I LOVE spending time with them- so it just feels like a WIN-WIN every time we get together. The current goal is to get enough work coming in that we can bring at least 1-2 women full time and hire others with steady part time work! (we have 3-4 women who work part time as of now).."

I recently bought the 'Kyle' necklace from their store, made of five African turquoise beads, and I absolutely love it. I have my eye on a few more!
I hope you take time to look into this organisation and are blessed and inspired by their faith and encouraging hearts to serve others.
