It all started with a high chair.
I started painting furniture as a side business while I was attending school at Maryville Collage. My original plans didn’t have anything to do with a store-front, I just enjoyed the painting.
When I married, my business moved with me to Knoxville, and after my divorce, it moved back home with me. My mom told me there was two options, I could either let her help me get a truck and make a real go at a business, or I could get a 9-5 job and get my own house.
Obviously I chose the truck (with the original dash of mysteries).
I opened up shop, and after two months, became the sole owner and brought my sister Milly to help become the face of Soul Sister’s Southern Market!
What I had originally intended to just take care of my little family has become a growing business that helps provide for several families.
From the very beginning, the Lord spoke to me and told me that He has given me this platform, and it is up to me to decide how to use it. That is so important to me! I always want my business to be one that uplifts the Lord, and gives Him credit for all of the amazing things that He allows us to do for Him.
This business has grown beyond what I could have ever imagined, and we are so thankful for the customers that have helped us grow and continue growing! At the end of the day, we are here to make people smile, tell others about Jesus, and to be the hands and feet of Jesus.
