We ignite generational change in the developing world by advancing its raw potential to enrich lives now and forever.

We offer 3-year programs in leather work, carpentry, and sewing, where students learn the trade by hand alongside academic education. All products sold in our store are handmade by these students, and 100% of revenue from sales of these goods is invested into the ministry to fund their program as well as the Mission Lazarus Children's Refuge, where 48 children call home.

Each of our products has a story (from handmade, mouth-blown drinking glasses; to hand-formed lucite trays) ... not green-washed spin one might find from a larger retailer, but a true story about the way each product was made and the care that went into making it that way...100%.

NOVEL CREATURE

I design outdoor goods for compassionate, adventurous women who want to create a healthy, sustainable lifestyle. Forgiveness and second chances are important to me.

Additionally, we provide monthly meet ups and yearly camping trips for women to experience outdoor adventure and find community through a private Facebook group.
