Editor’s Note: Sweet Erin from by Erin Creative Co. reached out to us a few weeks ago regarding her beautiful prints (you have probably seen them all over Instagram). As we got to know Erin more and learned the heartbeat behind her business, we knew it had to be shared. Not only that, but Erin also so kindly offered to give away TWO prints from her shop to one winner!! Take a look at Erin’s post below and scroll to the end to find the giveaway details. Happy Friday!
Hello, GLOW friends! I’m thrilled to be here today to share the heart of the by Erin Creative Co. brand. Our shop, which launched last year, is rooted in the deep desire to cultivate a life of joy. I chased happiness for years only to find myself wondering if a destination of happiness would ever be attainable. After putting “the chase” on the sidelines and making a slight shift in focus to cultivating joy, I stepped out of the rat race of our worldly life and into the light of God’s grace. Really, the heartbeat of by Erin Creative Co. is to know Him more, to move closer to Him, to be in tune to the Holy Spirit, and to shine His light into the world. Our shop and blog are geared toward spurring the hearts of women to cultivate joy through the thick of it.
“In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.” Matthew 5:16 (NIV)
When we seek only the milestones in life, we miss out on the meaningful beauty of the seemingly mundane. The hustle of our to-do lists shouldn’t outweigh the glory and goodness that He’s presenting to us in the day-to-day of motherhood, marriage, student-life, or entrepreneurship. He wants us to have joy and to know it fully through Him.
“These things I have spoken to you, that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be full.” John 15:11 (NIV)
In order to stand secure in His grace, I’ve found I need gentle reminders of Christ’s love hanging on my walls, sitting on my desk and uploaded to my phone where I can see them not daily but hourly. Perhaps the same is true for you, too. Here in our studio, we want to live life loudly for the Lord, not for any ambition or goal we’ve set, but for Him alone. We want by Erin Creative Co. to always point you back to Him. It’s our prayer that any product in our shop, post on our blog, image on our Instagram would always send you back to Him hungry for more of His truths.
“Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, “This is the way; walk in it.”’ Isaiah 30:21 (NIV)
He’s called us to live this life on purpose. No matter where you stand today, the Gospel is good news that He’s doing good works through us if we choose to abide in Him. We will see much fruit from cultivating a life of joy and keeping Him ever at the center of our hearts.
We’ve launched a new collection in our shop designed specifically with your heart in mind. Yes, YOU! He sees you, we see you and we want to walk this journey of joy alongside you to bring glory to His name. We’d love to see your hearts dive into the goodness on our blog, shop, and Instagram. Don’t be shy, stop by and say hello! My prayer is you’ll leave here today spurred to live and love with sincere and grateful hearts.
