It seems so grand, so out of your hands that you feel at a loss when it comes to knowing what next step to take. Before you know it, you’re exasperated with researching or ...

We’re taking a little break from sanding down some pine cuts for our wooden soap decks. Katie likes using her sanding block on the wooden pieces that have been cut. I love working alongside her, watching her enthusiastic eyes light up at the fact that she gets to do important work with mommy. This girl loves to work diligently with her hands. Samuel is three months now, starting to laugh, and absolutely loves to “be where the being is.” These two are why I wanted to work from home. Watching them giggle, learn, explore...I can’t imagine missing even one day ...

These are the moments when I dream of where God might take White Gardenia, and how He would use this company to bring people joy and hope! Featured here: Farmhouse Coffee Goat’s Milk Soap.
