The Romance of the Gospel + We Opened A Shop!

Spend some time talking to me / reading Godly Womanhood, and you will know that my driving passion in life is the Romance of the gospel — seeing mankind restored to the fullness of Eden.

Romance has been my greatest inspiration, motivation, and dream in life.

All my life, I have dreamed of a great love. The kind written about in sonnets and books, that echo through the ages to inspire many others. This great love found me — God, Jesus, Holy Spirit — and my life was turned upside-down, inside-out. Everything lost its fascination for me apart from the presence of Him, the One who had captivated my soul. I have been passionate about the Romance of the gospel ever since.

I have a dream to see Romance restored between human beings.  I yearn to see human beings return to the standard we were originally designed for and reflect the glory that we were meant to.

I have a dream to see Romance restored between God & men.  To see this generation captivated by the Romance of God’s design for us.  It is romance that drew me to God, and it is romance that keeps me close to His heart.  Jesus is a Lover, the Bridegroom who jealously and earnestly longs for His Bride!  I cannot imagine life without the love, presence, and pursuit of God, and I am passionate about sharing this beautiful message both within and outside of the Church.

I shared in my latest newsletter that I’ve been sensing the Spirit of God hovering over these words – KNOW YOUR GOD – and am running with it this year. Folks, it is all about intimacy and falling in love with God over and over again. Without the Romance of the gospel, all we have are just rhetoric and empty words, actions without power.

Before I received the #knowyourgod2015 word for this year, the Lord brought me on a journey that has led me up to this point. It involved Him planting the idea to start a shop as an extension of Godly Womanhood that would bring the Romance of the gospel into your homes and inspire intimacy with Him.

It took some time + courage + work + tears, but that idea has finally been birthed into reality with the Godly Womanhood Shop newly launched yesterday! I am so happy that the shop is launched in time to help us as we get to know our God this year.

A little bit about us:

The Godly Womanhood Shop is all about the Romance of the gospel. We express this by writing scripture beautifully on the little, everyday things to inspire intimacy & revival in your little, everyday moments.

We never started out with the intention of making it into a business, but this is where the Lord has led us to. We are so grateful for His grace every step of the way as we stepped out into uncharted waters, and have learned so much about the heart of the Father through this journey. We are also blessed by amazingly encouraging & prophetic friends that God has brought along the way – we have been uplifted in times of discouragement, given new clarity of vision through their ministry of prayer, and renewed passion for the Kingdom as we fellowship with like-minded world shakers.

Also, we are celebrating God and all He has done by giving you 20% off EVERYTHING for the month of January!Giving is very important to us, and your purchase helps us to give jobs to the vulnerable in Singapore + support Kingdom work in Asia & beyond.

  1. We give back to the community. Your purchase helps to provide jobs for vulnerable women in Singapore – women who battle with mental/physical disabilities & depression, ex-convicts, ex-prostitutes. Our goal is to eventually employ them full-time, equipping them with sustainable life + work skills that can improve their quality of life.
  2. We give to Kingdom work. We currently give 20% of all profit to Kingdom work in Asia (and occasionally worldwide, as the Spirit leads). We aim to continually increase this percentage in proportion to the growth of our shop.
  3. We support other ministries. We work out good rates for conference goodie bags, Bible study group packs, etc. We want to make our products accessible for you to equip & inspire others to intimacy with Jesus.

This business was birthed by God and led by Him every step of the way, and when you support our business we are beyond thrilled to pass His blessings on to others. Come and be a part of blessing others in this way!

We exist for the Romance of the gospel, and our goal is for intimacy and revival in every life in this generation. We pray over each item that gets sent out, asking the Lord to encounter its user in a new and powerful way.

Drop by the store for a little visit, buy a little something or two, and spread the news to your friends – we pray that God’s fame would increase as we spread the message of intimacy and revival to our generation!
