Hey friends! Long post alert! But trust me you want to hear this story!
My name is Taylor for those of you who may not know me. I struggle with depression and anxiety. In fact that picture you see was taken on one of the hardest days of my life. It took an act of God to get me across that stage—Not because I didn’t want to but because my depression was so crippling. Change was the culprit along with a few traumatic experiences at my job. I just wanted to crawl into a corner and cry. I quit my job & with the help of my amazing husband took a leap of faith and accepted a position as a nanny. I’ve had a year of rediscovery myself, fighting anxiety and depression each day, and learning grace and contentment. But this past year I have had a difficult time finding purpose and realizing my passion...
I found an inspiring woman online (Ashley LeMieux who also had a difficult year and was struggling at the same time I was). I had followed her for quite some time because of her nonprofit, The Shine Project, but her posts started to stand out to me. They were full of encouragement to find joy in the midst of pain & pushed me to keep going. Her dependence on God and her passion for family, urban youth, and encouraging others was like looking in a mirror at times. •
Fast forward 8 months of following her journey and she announced a Stylist program! I am NOT a business person nor do I have any desire to sell things to people, BUT I figured if she had impacted my life, maybe I could impact others!
Soooo here I am by God’s grace in my life and a desire to serve those around me! I love encouraging people, I love community, and the clothes are just an added bonus!
