Lyrics For Life

I love Contemporary Christian music! There so many great artists who know just the right words to sing, bringing us to our knees in tears, or dancing in praise! And sometimes in the same song!

Do you have that song that just reaches out and touches your soul that you know has impacted and possible changed your life? Is there a lyric of that song that you remember and love? Or is it a lyric you would love others to know and cherish as you do?

The Lyrics For Life are plaques of those music lyrics we have grown to love! There are 2 sizes and 2 price options.

The Large Lyrics For Life are 2 for $48, and are 12″ square. They have a thick base so can stand alone or be hung. The 3 songs featured are:
1. 10,o00 Reasons (sung here by Matt Redman),
2. The Doxology Hymn,
3. Jesus Messiah (sung here by Chris Tomlin).
One the back of each plaque is the story of the song, sharing the inspiration behind the words and the music.

Lyrics for Life

The Smaller Lyrics For Life are 2 for $22, and are 5 1/2″ square. They have a keyhole on the back to be hung, or a peg to stand on a desk or shelf. Some are even embellished with glitter! The 8 featured songs are:

As For Me And My House We Will Serve The Lord

I personally just love when men love the Mary & Martha products! When I am a vendor and a man walks by stops looks around and tells me “Thank you for being here”, or “Your booth reminds me of my home growing up”, I just get chills. Men want their home to look a certain way too! So often we as women as so the ones to decorate and purchase things for the house, that we forget to buy things that would make it a home! Often I have men purchase an item telling me “our house just needs this message”. I love when they step up and want to set the statement of their home, after all they are the man of the house!

The one item I have had men love and purchase the absolute most is The As For Me And My House We Will Serve The Lord wall decor.  It comes from Joshua 24:15 and sets a statement for a home. It declares this is what we will do, how we will act, and who we will serve. There will not denying that it is a Christian home based off of Christian values, and that loves and wants to serve our Lord! And when a man buys this for his home! Praise the Lord! He is declaring and carrying his family through faith and direction.

The As For Me And My House We Will Serve The Lord is metal is 23″ W x 17″ H. It is metal in rich brown tones and can be hung indoors or under a covered shelter.

Let me show you some ways it has been displayed outside of homes (under a covered shelter).
as-for-me-pic 1978774_266553183519551_920344516_n

Or inside the home… in a quite prayer corner, with family pictures, at the top of a split staircase, or above a cabinet.

13012642_1222912971054573_7279066563948816562_n 14265d3092b70fb57b429696836c74be 10690284_10202725236433908_6709012266813469916_n img_1016

So ladies if your man brings this piece home… you will find the perfect spot for it I am sure. Declare is strong and proud! PS… also make a great gift for a man (Christmas, Birthday, Fathers Day to name a few)!

Finally, Real Help Without the Hype for Your Direct Sales Business

We’ve all seen it.

A Direct Sales dream story where the work-from-home lady makes millions and travels the world on her own schedule without ever having to miss her kid’s soccer practice. We wonder if it is really just a dream?

BUT we’ve also seen…

The woman working what seems like 24/7, not making much return on her effort, always posting desperately on Facebook and then her friends start avoiding her. We wonder if all of the direct sales opportunities would become a nightmare like that?

For many women, Direct Sales is the answer to real life challenges. Maybe they:

  • Have a job they can’t stand but need to replace the income
  • Need to contribute financially while also caring for the kids or for aging parents
  • Have a child with special needs or an illness that requires more days off than a traditional job would allow
  • Have an entrepreneurial spirit and thrive on the freedom of building something all their own
  • Have debt they are committed to paying off once and for all and want to speed up the process
  • Had an unexpected life change through a spouse’s death or a divorce
  • Needing to retire but don’t have enough money saved to do so without drastically changing their lifestyle

Direct Sales can be a great solution to each of these needs! It offers freedom, a level playing field regardless of race, gender, education level, background, or track record. When Direct Sales is done right, it can change lives, help people achieve their dreams, and make it possible for them to give generously to others.

But you also know that one day you can see the vision and the next day, after a “no-show” or just a rude “no” you’re tempted to throw in the towel. It can be TOUGH building your own Direct Sales business. Don’t make it any tougher than it has to be!

Join me for a training where we will learn from the TOP Christian women leaders in Direct Sales. Why make our own mistakes doing it the hard way when we can learn from THEIR mistakes & successes and build our business much faster?

Why Not Now?

join a company and community of women

Whenever I see “God Bless Our Home” I think of my Grandmothers. It hung in a picture in her home along with many others. When you walked into her house, Christ was alive and the messages there spoke. Even 40+ years later I can still see them… can you relate with something similar?

Women, we need to do the same in our generation, so other generations follow suit. The things we bring into and display in our homes have powerful life long impact.

If your home is full of constant activity, schedules, rushing here and there… the best way to bring peace is to fill it with items of faith. The messages and scripture on those items grounds us, remind us, and keeps our faith alive. They have a purpose not just for us, but our families.

This also is important in the gifts that we give. I have several gifts with scripture on them that I treasure. It reminds me not only that the one who gave it to me loved me, but that God loves me also… can you relate with something similar?

Well Mary & Martha has taken what women are doing everyday into a company all about sharing. Founded by DaySpring and owned by Hallmark (two respectable companies) they have found a way for us women to combine our faith with our work, and created a community of women who celebrate God’s love in our lives!

Would you like to belong to a community of women that is positive, and share with others items with faith filled messages? Or would you just like to have your home be like that and knows it needs a change? Well them this may be an opportunity you have been looking for.


In October there is a great $99 enrollment kit special! Consultants can join Mary & Martha by purchasing a starterdeluxe, or $99 kit. The $99 kit is valued at $247 and will consist of fall product and business supplies also, so you will be all set to start your own business!




To see the kits and such better just click HERE.

Why join now?

1. Mary & Martha a still a ground floor company and I don’t want you to miss out! There are many companies I wish I would of been a part of in the beginning… can you relate?
2. The best time to join is in the fall, with the Christmas shopping season upon us. We have lots of great gifts, and Christmas items too.
3. I love to see women grow both in their faith, confidence, and business, and I want to help you!
