Actually lots of it! This is the start of a revolution. I've been ready to move for awhile and God's timing has finally allowed my gifts to team up with HIS plans. I've been working NONSTOP this summer on designs, photos, art, ideas, prayers, and BIG HOPE!

The new (temporary) site can be found here:

*I ask that you please take time and watch this video I made. I spent months of blood, sweat, and tears putting this together (literally, I'm really clumsy)

My photos here:

And of course my site @

I hope you join me in praying for the next few months for these projects. The BOOK is set to be finished by Christmas of this year so we can get it printed and take it on tour with us through the East Coast at the end of March 2010. The tour will be to promote our ministry and SALE THE BOOK! Oh I can't wait! 100% of proceeds from the book will go directly into funding our ministry and projects.

As well as working on final designs for the book, I am hoping to join our team, Pick A Pocket, in a trip to India. There we will collaborate with our good missionary friend (who's name I may not disclose) works in the Red District area outside of Kolkata. We want to speak with her friends (women who have worked as prostitutes most or all of their life) to help in starting a clothing company. This will give them work so they can provide for themselves financially and alow them to get out of prostitution. And of course, our creative minds will be able to start new trands around the world! Oh this is too exciting! I am asking you guys - if anyone is reading this to share the video found at:


I really feel led to go with the team to India. As a designer, it inspires me so much to be in the place and interact with those I am designing for. If you want to be apart of this trip financially, my support info can be found here:

Thanks and have a blessed day!

Addis Ababa and the children

Upon my stay in the capitol city of Ethiopia, I met a young man named Abdissa. Though his manner and intellect lead you to believe he's well into his thirties, this man was a mere 27 years old. For several years Abdissa went to the streets several times a week bringing the street children tea and cookies. He eventually became friends with many of them and a foe to some. He was know as the protestant man, taking about a man named Jesus, and sharing hope with the orphans. His heart screamed for compassion over these children, and after a few years, he decided to take his love into action adopting his first child from the streets. He is now the Children's Home Director and is in care of 25 children age 2-17. You can tell just how much the children love him like a father and he respects them just the same. It's a beautiful place. If you ever get the chance to go to Ethiopia, stop by to hang out and play with the kids and tell them Stephanie says hi
