After months of talk, we’ve decided it was time we put our money where our mouths are!
Being a conservative and a Christian I’m usually good at being quiet, minding my own business, keeping my opinions to myself, buying what I need/want/like and not giving too much thought to where things come from, where my money ends up or what special interests these companies support. I love America with all my heart and anyone that knows me will say that is 100% true. But over the last few months I feel like things need to change. My love for America and conservative values can’t just be seen in my red, white & blue hat and the cross around my neck. I need to be more cognizant about what products I’m buying, what brands I support, and MOST importantly where my money is going. And I will be honest in saying that I will do this across the board and at times I will fail & falter, but I won’t give up and I will share along the way!
When I buy makeup for myself and my daughter I don’t want it to be from a company who’s model is biologically a male. I mean seriously! I want to buy makeup made for women, modeled by … you guessed it WOMEN! When I buy cookies that say USA on them and are red, white & blue I want them to be made in the USA and not Mexico. When my daughter wants a cute new outfit for the beach, I don’t want to have to wait 8-12 weeks for it to arrive from China and it not look at all like what was advertised. You get the gist!
So from here on out, we at this blog are starting ‘Faith and Freedom Fridays’. On Fridays we plan to share one or more products, brands, companies, etc. that are made in America. Products that support local companies. Companies that have Christian values and support Christian & conservative principles rather than cowering to the mobs.
Now, if you own, work for or know of a company like this PLEASE share with us. We are on a quest to put our money where our values our, put America first and get the word out for others to do the same. It takes hard work and diligence to investigate, but they are out there and it’s time we stop sitting quietly.
So here goes…..
For our first ‘Faith & Freedom Friday’ we have 3 businesses to share. The first is EverBe cosmetics who was recently featured in The Christian Post.
After being fed up with going to makeup counters/stores to be greeted by makeup wearing men and seeing ads for drugstore products featuring male models, I decided to do some research. I found EverBe online and the products are not only gorgeous, but each product has scripture inspired words/verses on it. As the article above notes this is the “first-ever makeup line to affirm a woman’s God-given identity.” AND a quick email to the company assured me that their products are all made in the USA. I’ve got a few things on the way and cannot wait to try it out! https://everbeyou.com/
The second business we’re sharing was posted on our Instagram page a few days ago. Erin got a super-cool new pair of earrings (and yes I am jealous) from KissMyBrassCo.
They have an Instagram and an Etsy page featuring all their products. When I say this is the coolest jewelry I’m not exaggerating in the least bit! This lady designs all her own earrings, bracelets and necklaces from spent bullet casings. How cool is that?!! I’ve got my eyes on 2 items already, just wanted to wait a few days before I copy Erin, lol.
And the last shoutout for this Friday goes to my girl @Bella.Beadss
Quarantine had us all a little stir crazy, but she used her time to learn how to make some seed bead jewelry and started selling it. Instead of staring at her phone all day or making TikToks nonstop, she’s been a busy bee and I love it! I’m a little biased of course, but I’m super proud of her and have loved everything she’s posted so far. Here she is on Instagram: ⬇️
Go check out these 3 businesses and let us know what you think! Don’t forget to share with others and fill us in on other businesses you think we’ll love! ❤️🤍💙🇺🇸
