THE NAME CROSSES STORY
Life is made up of a few moments all strung together like pearls. Each moment is a pearl, and it is up to us to pick the ones with the highest luster. -Joyce Hilfer
Give the gift they’ll always cherish.
Our life, our love, our memories, our dreams….they all exist in moments. Moments of joy. Moments of sorrow. Even the uneventful moments, too mundane to remember.
Some moments call for glorious celebration. These are the ones we want to remember; to continue celebrating throughout our lives. To cherish forever.
We all desire to find ways to capture the special moments and hold them close so that they may live on in our memories. It is from this desire that Name Crosses was created. The crosses serve as a loving reminder of those moments that mean the most.
I started Name Crosses in an unremarkable way. A friend asked if I could create a unique gift to give for a baby’s Baptism. I developed my first Name Cross for a little boy named Andrew. I didn’t think much of it at the time. Little did I know that God had a plans to grow my idea into something bigger.
As the years have passed, I have watched my little hobby business grow beyond anything that I could have imagined. I am still humbled by His goodness. It took a long time to realize that I am doing His work using the gifts He has given to me. See, I’m an introvert. Like Moses, I don’t have the gift of eloquence. Without the gift of words, I’ve always felt that I was falling short.
As Name Crosses has grown, so has my ability to reach people and remind them of His love. Every order allows me to donate funds to improve the lives of children in need. Each cross is shipped wrapped in prayer and with gratitude for the opportunities it provides. I am eternally grateful for these blessings.
