Turning 30 is big. Really BIG. It can be scary because you’re saying goodbye to your twenties. You have to officially grow up.
For my 30th birthday, 5 years ago, I decided to look forward and to not mourn my twenties. My 3rd decade was going to be my best yet. It was going to be the decade that I found out who I really was and who God made me to be. So I decided to start it off with a piercing and another baby.
5 years in and the decade is half over. I’m turning 35 and there are no regrets. God has used these last several years to reveal the passions and talents He’s instilled in me.
One of these passions is helping those who have been enslaved in various forms and fashions. In the past year I’ve found out about a ministry whose mission is the restoration and rehabilitation of exploited men and women.
I’m pleased to introduce to you, Sak Saum. They are in Phnom Penh and the Saang district of Cambodia. Everyday they help the men and women of their community build a new life. Through their Vocational Training Center they’re offering job opportunities and fair trade wages – things we often take for granted.
If you haven’t visited the Sak Saum website yet, don’t wait any longer. You’ll get to ‘meet’ the men and women who make up Sak Saum, and I hope that your heart will be touched as much as mine has. You’ll also get to see their beautiful line of bags and purses. I love their products! As well as some amazing accessories (infinity scarves and hammered jewelry) and even some baby items.
Will you join me in the fight against human trafficking by supporting Sak Saum?
We can volunteer, raise support, and most importantly – pray. This is Kingdom work and we get to be a part of it!
And for my birthday, I’ve decided to give you all a little something – a couple of little somethings from Sak Saum.
First is the New York Tote Scarf and the second is the For Freedom Bracelet. Just enter the giveaway to win.
