After a long and winding path of patience, trust and faith, sisters Wendy Strong Lupas and Mary Strong Blackburn are thrilled to share with you their personal journey that lead to the development of The Gracewear Collection. This jewelry is truly as beautiful as the story of grace that inspired the Collection.
The Shield of Faith jewelry design is based on the scripture Ephesians 6: 10-18 about how we can spiritually dress ourselves for the battles that we face every day. The Shield represents the protection of God from the flaming arrows that are thrown at us daily. God wants to protect everything in our lives: ourselves, families, marriages, homes, businesses, churches, communities…everything! The Shield of Faith jewelry is designed to remind us of this constant protection.
Wendy and Mary feel that every woman has their own ‘Gracewear story’. They pray that through their collection, women can find freedom and comfort in their journey for daily grace. “God calls us to be ambassadors for Christ and to let His love and light shine through us,” said Wendy. “We must be spiritually dressed for the battles that we face everyday. Hopefully our Collection can help women to have a little more peace, joy, and balance in their hectic lives. Now, I don’t know a woman on earth that wouldn’t want that!”
