Meet the World Changer – Kinya Claiborne

God shows up in my life every single day, every minute, every second.

I’m actually a survivor of the Route 91 mass shooting that happened in Las Vegas. It was the largest mass shooting in modern-day American history, and that day, I went to celebrate my birthday in Las Vegas. It was really the unthinkable. In fact, when the shooting happened, no one even realized it was a shooting because it was just the unthinkable. Of course, I had my My Saint My Hero bracelets on me because I wear them every single day. I never take them off. Immediately, when the shooting began and I realized it was gunshots, not fireworks or part of the show, everyone ran. I immediately was separated from my friends. I was separated from them for about eight full hours before I was able to connect with them, see them, hug them, cry with them and pray with them. When I was able to reconnect with my friend Danielle, we looked down and noticed that we both had My Saint My Hero bracelets on.

The Story Behind the St. Amos Love Bracelet

The Story Behind the St. Amos Love Bracelet

John Stamos St. Amos Love Bracelet

 


Let 'em know they're loved, John Stamos

Many years ago, when I was trying to come up with a name for my production company, without missing a beat my mother said, “Call it St. Amos.” Neither of us knew that there was a real saint by that name—we just thought it sounded cool.

St. Amos Love Bracelet for Men and Women

Well, not only was St. Amos cool, he was humble. A “saint for the people” spreading the word that God’s love was not just for prophets and kings, but for every woman and man. My wife and I had the thought, how can we spread love and pay our blessings forward? We decided to partner St. Amos with My Saint My Hero to do just that.

 

I’ve been wearing My Saint My Hero bracelets for years. I often find myself giving them to friends, fans or sometimes I get a vibe that someone just needs to be acknowledged, to let someone know they’re special. And who knows the impact of what a gesture like this can do? Wear one, share one and tell us your stories so we can continue to share the love forward. #StAmosJewelryStories —JOHN STAMOS

Nia Peeple’s Radical Heart

Nia Peeple’s Radical Heart

Mother’s Day is beautiful because it’s a recognition of womanhood, not just motherhood. Sisterhood, daughterhood, we are women. The fullness of that. I don’t mean just motherhood. I mean how society sometimes will say, she’s just a mom. She’s just a housewife, she’s just a … No! Our ability to bring forth life is extraordinary, and this is our time to do that on so many levels.

We are mothers; we are fierce, we are kind, we are compassionate, we are thinking of everyone, we are powerful.

It takes a radical heart to stand in the truth of who you are, to drop the stories that previously defined you and simply be. The beautiful thing about this is that when you commit your life to evolving from that place of the radical heart you, shift everything. You’re joining others who have made that decision as well, those who have committed to standing fully in who they are. –Nia Peeples

Empower Seed of Life

Empower Seed of Life


When I think about the Seed of Life the thing that sticks out to me is the word life. And I think life is something that is just taken for granted.

It’s kind of a reminder that life starts and ends with God.

He’s involved in our life all the way through. In every moment of our lives He’s there and He wants to be present… As a woman and as a mother I think that I have that special privilege of experiencing life and giving life and being part of that procreation. – Maria

 

Discover the Empower Seed of Life Necklace

This sacred symbol was emblazoned on what is believed to be the first altar from which Christ proclaimed the power of divine love. May it be emblazoned upon your heart as a reminder to be bold, to be who you really are. Let nothing come between you and your divine knowing, for the kingdom of God is within you. Embody this divine love that surpasses all knowledge. Express it freely to the fullness of God. You are empowered. You yourself empower.

Attend Eucharistic Adoration. Buy a sketchbook. Draw what Jesus put on your heart. Color your prayers. Write your heart out as a poem. Read old books you find in your church. Start a prayer card collection. Sing a song about Jesus every morning. Find a community. Understand your past faults. Confess and repent. Write Jesus a thank-you letter. Send someone a postcard with a prayer on it. Believe. Write your honest thoughts with your Father. Give flowers to Mary. Wear saints around your neck as friendship necklaces. Keep your heart in the hands of Jesus. Know that you are blessed. Fast. Pray. Give alms. Be here, in Lent.

Lent with Maclain A Catholic Convo Blog

This Lent, my boldness comes from the fire of the Holy Spirit to give more of myself. I’m focusing especially on fasting because I believe a consistent sacrifice sings a song to God who gave us all we have. I enjoy only drinking water in place of any other drink during Lent to ground me to the truth that Jesus alone can satisfy. Any thirst in life that I experience can only be fulfilled by Christ, and the Holy Spirit has inspired me to apply this truth to my fasting. – Maclain/A Catholic Convo Blog

Lent with Jordan Jones

Lent with Jordan Jones - When I met my husband, I wasn’t praying for love. I wasn’t praying for a boyfriend or a relationship. I was praying to draw closer to the Lord. I was at a crossroads in my life, and my prayer was simply that the Lord have His way in my life and that he turn my heart towards Him.

When I met my husband, I wasn’t praying for love. I wasn’t praying for a boyfriend or a relationship. I was praying to draw closer to the Lord. I was at a crossroads in my life, and my prayer was simply that the Lord have His way in my life and that He turn my heart towards Him. Little did I know that He’d answer my prayer by bringing Pete into my life. Meeting Pete radically changed my life. It was a true turning point in my faith. He’s shown me love and faithfulness like I never could’ve imagined in a man. He was the first person to show me a devotional and ask me to read the bible with him. He’s challenged me to walk out my faith in big bold ways and all of the small, every day, in-between ways.⠀

I was at a crossroads in my life, and my prayer was simply that the Lord have His way in my life and that he turn my heart towards Him.

In every step of the way, through every act of love, he’s pointed me back to Jesus… I’ve been praying for simplicity, to shed the weight of the distractions in this world so that I can make more room for Jesus. I want Him to be the center of everything I do – how I serve my clients, how I treat my friends, how I love my husband. Today I’m reminded that it all comes back to one thing: love.⠀- Jordan Jones/ Living For More, With Less Blog

Being a mom of three is the greatest gift God has given me. It has not only changed my perspective but showed me what matters. In the midst of it all, I am constantly seeking ways to strengthen my personal relationship with Jesus to, in turn, instill my faith to my children.

Events at the Experience Boutiques: Lenten Watercolor Journals

A big thank you to Maria Franklin for organizing and sharing her experience of this wonderful event! 


How wonderful to be able to share my reflections on this day – both Valentine’s Day and Ash Wednesday.

The new My Saint My Hero classes bring women together looking to deepen their faith and enjoy creative fun within the intimate space of our Experience Boutiques – It’s part of the blessing revolution beginning to take shape in the community!

For two days last week we were able to offer 20 women the opportunity amidst our busy lives, to slow down and learn about the meaning of Lent with Fr. Charbel of Saints Peter and Paul Church in Wilmington. He spoke about being attentive to our own patterns and triggers that distance us from God. While shaking a water bottle with dirt in it, he attempted to look through the cloudy murky water; he could not see through it. However, when he sat the bottle down, the dirt settled to the bottom allowing clear vision through the bottle. I grasped the meaning of this imagery: that the busier I am the harder it is to see through and really examine my life. I must be still – only then will I see clearly to take inventory of my ways, reactions and intentions. I realized my need to slow down and make a commitment devoting time to Jesus this Lent.

Draw close to God and He will draw close to you. James 4:8

We then painted our own beautiful journal covers guided by the talented local watercolor artist Suzy Cyr. Each of us left ready to begin our own “journaling pilgrimage”, learning ways to create a daily routine to meditate, write and reflect on our lives and open our hearts to hear His word….

Speak Lord your servant is listening. 1 Samuel 3:10

I was fortunate to be part of these evenings offered; laughing, learning, and stretching not only our artistic abilities but together also stretching our faith encouraging each other to walk closely these next 40 days with Jesus.

BE AWARE OF HIS PRESENCE THROUGHOUT THESE NEXT 40 DAYS!

Blessings,
Maria Franklin

The Power of a Story: Inspiration, Growth, Changing Lives

 

“Prayer changes everything”

Sometimes it’s good to remember our story; to look back at where we started, how far we’ve come, and through it all, see God’s hand at work. Because despite the daily distractions, in the end, when all is said and done, it is for His Kingdom that we do what we do. Our mission makes no sense if we don’t do it all for Him, through Him, and in Him. The Holy Spirit was the inspiration which began My Saint My Hero, and we pray, He will always guide us in the light of truth, and that we will have the grace to be open and obedient to His Way.

Wear One. Be One. Share One.

Thank you Venture with Virtue for allowing Christine to share the My Saint My Hero story with your listeners! The interview will be live on their website for a few weeks, so head on over there to give it a listen!
