All I Wish I had Known About Business wth a Purpose Part 3 by Nell Green

I just love our designs. I love our fabrics. It is hard to resist buying every single piece. You can’t sell what you don’t love. And you can’t sell what you don’t believe in. I believe in the quality of our work and the mission as well as the beauty and style.

All I Wish I had Known About Business with a Purpose Part 2 By Nell Green

Networking comes natural to me. I have been doing it for more than thirty years in my role as a minister. I learned long ago you do better if you join others and if you open your door to them.

All I Wish I had Known About Business with a Purpose Part 1 of 5 by Nell Green

FYI as you read: Threads by Nomad is our company. My daughter is my partner. Her name is Christen, but she has been Sissi to the family her entire life. So while this is about Business with a Purpose there is a lot of personal thrown in. After all, business is personal. This blog post has been floating around in my brain since the beginning of Threads by Nomad. I was freaked out scared when we started. Ministers/missionaries are not business people. Or at least I was not! I have changed in so many ways as a minister as a result of Threads by Nomad. I can’t even begin the list the things I have had to learn. I am very grateful to many people who have helped in that process. There is one group in particular that has stirred me to go ahead and put this on paper. I meet with Women Helping Women 2 Network fairly regularly. We talk about goals and we talk about how we can help each other in our businesses.

Hope House: A Reflection on Refugees by Dr. Bill Bigger

They are individuals with hopes and dreams who deserve our love, our compassion, our care, and our warm hospitality. I still have a lot of learning and growing to do and I certainly don’t have all the answers, but I am praying that I will be the kind of person who loves and advocates for the marginalized, the vulnerable, and those too easily overlooked and dismissed.

God's Hand at Work: My Houston Mission Trip Experience by Lindsey Bennett

 I think our entire missions team was amazed at how thankful the refugees were for us coming to their homes and what little it seems that we did to help. I do not think any of us were expecting to find such a catastrophic area right outside the large city of Houston. It was inspiring to me that I was able to help in neighboring areas and that saving the world does not have to be a large event such as something in a super hero movie, but can be as simple as walking out your front door and helping your neighbor bring in their groceries or taking the time to talk to that homeless man outside of the supermarket and listen to his story.

Can we do less? by Roy A. Jones II

Willingness and flexibility. That's all it took to be a volunteer Mud-out Missionary to help the flood victims of Hurricane Harvey in Houston Sept. 18-22. The five of us who went on the first of several planned trips led by John Moore didn't do what we went expecting to do, but we received much more than we gave.

Showing Love and Care by Georgia Lewis

I never thought I could be a missionary or go on mission trips. Growing up the word missionary meant having to leave my family and friends and go to a foreign country and proclaim the gospel, which honestly is a very scary thing to even think aboutI never thought I could be a missionary or go on mission trips.
