Naming Room to Flourish

I'm so glad to share my journey with you!  I created this space called Room to Flourish.  Let me tell you where it all began...

Way back in high school, one of the art projects we had to do was designing a brand name. I wanted a name for my brand that was found or inspired by something in the Holy Bible, and I came across the name Rehoboth. I loved it, and even though I ran with it then, I knew it was a strange sounding word.  It also takes a bit of practice to pronounce correctly. It needed some refining.

In Genesis chapter 22, Isaac was looking for a place to live.  The plan was to find a good place, dig a well for water, then settle. They did this twice, and when they had dug the wells, the people there quarreled over the land. So, Isaac moved on and dug a third well. No one quarreled over that place, so they named it Rehoboth. Rehoboth means broad places or open spaces. He said, "Now, the Lord has given us room and we will flourish in the land." Genesis 26:22 NIV.

Which brings us here to Room to Flourish, the translation for Rehoboth, and the promise of God. The Lord has given us room to flourish.

My heart for this blog is to encourage you in your journey to knowing God. I'm still walking this path and learning here, too, so let's do this together.

I'm going to share often about what God's showing me, the 'little gifts' he's giving me (more on that another time), and showing things I've been making lately.  If you follow Room to Flourish on Instagram, you'll know I tend to make a lot of different kinds of things - art, lettering, crochet, sewing, etc.

I do have an online shop, Room to Flourish, where I currently have a 2020 calendar available. Please check it out!


I have also set up a gallery where you can have a look at a sample of my commissioned art and design work.  See the Room to Flourish Gallery here.
