As many of you have heard me say before, I am a believer that poverty is not simply a word that relates to money. It is a state of being. When you look up the definition of poverty, multiple meaning arise:
1. the state or condition of having little or no money, goods, or means of support; condition of being poor.
2. deficiency of necessary or desirable ingredients, qualities, etc.
3. scantiness; insufficiency.
Two things that one can be lacking the most, in my opinion, are finance and faith. So to the average person who hears we are here with a passion to overcome poverty, they assume we are ONLY going to the men and women on the street corners.

Well I'm here to tell you otherwise. 
Having a lack in faith- being impoverished in it- is life threatening. In all senses. It can be what gets a human being from one day to the next. It can be your only hope during an incredibly rough time. And it can also mean life with Christ, or death apart from Him. 

From now through August 25th, Hope 'n Motion's donation cause will be Harvest America. Harvest America is a ONE DAY crusade that will take place in Anaheim, California, and be broadcasted nation wide. It will be shown in approx 1,000 venues across America, all with the goal of having people hear the truth about our Lord. 

On August 26th, we will personally be attending the live crusade, where our donations will be put into effect and seen in action.

I am hoping and praying for an amazing outcome through these efforts, and I hope you can be apart.

To purchase items, visit hopenmotion.etsy.comour Etsy Store. All items seen can also been customized to meet your desires.

15% of all purchases will be donated directly to Harvest America.

Thank you again and we look forward to working with you as we bring The Word nation-wide..

Help. Fight. Cancer.

Completing the AVON Walk for Breast Cancer: 40 miles, 2 days

To purchase items, go to HNMs Etsy Store.

Lately the Lord has been radically making me look at my life, my health, and why I make the choices I do. 
Choices in everything and anything.
Relationships. Conversations. Food. Exercise. Reading. Appearance. Style.

But yet again, today I was reminded of how precious life is, and how every minute of every hour of every day needs to honor Jesus Christ. Our days were numbered before we were born, and every circumstance, joy, and trial we face is part of our plan and a part of His perfect will. 

Being twenty-five years old, most people around me should be getting married and celebrating new life. Yet since being twenty-five, more people than I've ever known diagnosed with cancer.
People my age.  
People who love the Lord.
People who should not be fighting this fight. 

Breast cancer.
Testicular cancer. 
Lymphoma Cancer.
Brain Cancer. 
Cancer. Cancer. Cancer. 

We need to take our life choices into our own hands. Not our lives, for they need to be handed to Him, and trust in his goodness. But what we do with the vessel we are for him, that is on our shoulders. So while you can, LIVE. 

Live for HIM. 
Love for HIM. 

Hug others even if they seem unclean. Go for a walk even when you hurt. Take a vacation even when funds are tight. Go to work even when you hate your boss. Enjoy the rain even when it messes up your hair, and sit in the sun even if it makes you sweat. Pray for a stranger even if it makes your heart race.

Hold on to it. Provide it. Make it. Have it. 
It is all we have.

I can't believe Autumn is finally here!!

If you know me, you know this is my favorite time of year :)

The colors, the smells, the weather.... It is all aaaammmazing!

The first of our holiday pieces are up and for sale on Etsy, and I must admit they are adorable. 

These two aprons are based upon our classic full body apron, with a twist. They are only half aprons, one with a fussy-cut pocket, and one without. The fabrics are Alexander Henry and Kaufman, both holding amazing quality and such vibrant colors! 

If you are a Halloween lover, these are worth checking out! And for you party throwers, or all of you mothers, this is a great way to be festive without becoming the classic mom 'Halloween cat'.

For custom orders, email us at hopenmotion@gmail.com, or order our pre-made designs on out site, www.hopenmotion.etsy.com
