giveaway with beautiful & beloved

I'm excited today to introduce to you a new shop with a beautiful vision behind it. Everything in the online shop Beautiful & Beloved, run by Amber, supports victims of trafficking and slavery.

<><><>


Amber's story
I blog and run the online Beautiful & Beloved boutique.  It is my path in life to remind women of every age and ethnicity that we are daughters of God, and He calls us His beloved and to Him we are breathtakingly beautiful.  The online shop sells items that are handmade by survivors of slavery.  Did you know that there are more slaves in the world right now than ever before in human history?? Beautiful and Beloved Boutique partners with organizations around the world who not only take these brave survivors in, they teach them a trade, they offer counseling and hope.  These survivors get a new chance at life and you get the chance to help them in that journey by purchasing their unique and beautiful merchandise.




Amber's favorites from the shop:

I actually have no idea what I am doing with this boutique.  This was a calling from God and through every step of the way He has been lying a path before me.  I am just trusting in Him that this is His plan and that He will make it a success for His glory and the glory of those who have never before been glorified.  I feel like I am literally just along for the ride, blessed and grateful that I have been chosen for this dream.

I wish I could give great advice about starting a business, but the truth is I have none.  I have just tried my best to be humble, to be in community, and to be in God's will and I am trusting that He will do the rest.

Amber is generously offering free shipping with the code "sweeterika" but if that's not enough, she's also giving away $30 to the Beautiful & Beloved shop to a rouge & whimsy reader. (If I could win, I'd snag this or this!)
