With Christmas just two short weeks away I wanted to share a few of my favorite small business shops with you. Supporting small businesses means your purchase actually helps a real person grow their passion instead of a large corporation. If we all shopped with a few local businesses together we could do a lot to help our own home front economy. Let me introduce you to some amazing people!
Have Faith Studio
If you have been a long time reader of the Sit Still my Daughter magazine, you will have noticed the beautiful ad located on the back of every issue. These uplifting products are the work of Jeri Stunkard, founder and creator of Have Faith Studio. She has been an amazing support and encouragement to me and has a passion to help others. Her products include journals, books, cards, and other unique gifts.
Cook 2 Flourish
Robin is the genius behind the many delicious recipes featured in every issue of the magazine but she also has a youtube channel, cookbook, and handmade jewelry that makes the perfect gift for mother, daughter, in-laws, and grandmothers. Cook 2 Flourish is a place where you can find a beautiful handmade gift or a recipe for that next party.
Kait & Crowne
If you are looking for clothing that not only fits exactly the way you need it to and that is feminine as well then Kait & Crowne is for you. Sarah has a heart to celebrate timeless elegance and femininity. Her apparel is where British lifestyle meets Charleston charm and will delight those who love both.
Having met on Instagram through her posts, I have only enjoyed getting to know Sarah more over the last few years. She has been on my podcast twice and has such wisdom to give. She is the author of numerous books that will be a blessing to so many and her blog is also filled with helpful tips and tools to strengthen and encourage your walk with the Lord. Be sure to see all that Sarah Geringer has to offer this holiday season.
Encouragement from Women who’ve been there
Not only is this a wonderful resource with articles that range from forgiveness to friendship for women of all ages, EFW also offers wonderful books that will encourage and challenge your hearts. They also have released a new one meant to be read by mothers and daughters.
The Prayer Notebook System
Are you struggling with your prayer life? Does it seem a little hard to concentrate or remember to pray for that person you said you would? Do you wonder how to better organize your prayer requests so you can pray for family, friends, missionaries, co-workers, and more? You need this prayer notebook! Ruth Bumgardner created this notebook for herself as she wanted to learn how to pray better and now shares her wisdom and experience with us. I love mine and can honestly say it has changed the way I pray!
The Shoppes Off Trade
For those who live in the Greenville South Carolina area, you will enjoy this sweet shop filled with more than 80 local vendors whose products range from handmade soap to jewelry to decor items. If you are looking for personalized and unique gifts, Shopps Off Trade is for you.
Let’s shop local
While it is definitely easy to order from large companies like Amazon and Walmart, choosing to go with local companies is a wonderful way to support women who are looking to honor the Lord with the talents He has given and each purchase helps them continue in their wonderful work. So let’s go local!

I am just an ordinary girl who is loved by an extraordinary God and I seek to love others the same way. I love to bake, read, do puzzles, watch Hallmark movies, and go shopping with my mom! This blog was created as a place where I could share some thoughts that the Lord has shown me and to be an encouragement to others who desire to know Him in a deeper way. My prayer is to learn to sit still and trust God with my future.
