goodies that give [hand made edition]

goodies that give.  are you tired of hearing about it yet?  Everyone on my list is getting items I “purchased with purpose” and while I can’t share THOSE with you [don’t want to ruin the surprise!] I can share a few things I’ve found that you might like for that special family member or person in your life!  All of these items give back, or were hand made with love, let’s call this my ETSY/adoption edition!  I hope you take a minute to read about each item + maybe pin one or two to save for later 😉  Happy purposeful shopping….


so these new friends are planting a church in Amsterdam and have started this company to help raise the funds to get their family there!  visit them on etsy.  My bestie Jenna interviewed them this week + you can find more about them and their mission on her blog here.



“My name is Amber Newberry and I have an online {and more recently IRL} little boutique called Beautiful & Beloved where I sell fair trade clothing and accessories mostly partnering with organizations hiring survivors of trafficking.  All of the artisans who contribute to my shop are being afforded the opportunity to make sustainable incomes by being creative and sharing their gifts with us!!”



 beautiful and beloved//  coasters + placemats handmade in Cambodia by women + men being restored from lives of exploitation.  She sent me her fabulous maxi skirt that I can’t wait to wear when the weather gets warmer + take with me to Uganda in March!  Again, Jenna blogged about our new friend this week – read more of her story here.  and I love that she uses the #purchasetoempower hashtag!  Check it out on social media for more fun product and ideas!


so many fun ideas for christmas ideas on “shop for adoption” over at Mercy Found Ministries!  You can find all sorts of goodies for kids, men, women and even your Christmas tree!  let’s support these adoptions!

while we are talking adoption….let’s check out “Ethiopia Dad” and their handmade ornaments and Christmas decor.

how about the She Does Justice shop?? “She Does Justice is an advocate for those who need one. It is a space where organizations who are working for the good of others are recognized. It is a community of people who want to show love to the ‘least of these’. A place where we strive to show those in need that they are known and loved.”

I hope yall’ have enjoyed this fun purchase with purpose series — I love helping people buy amazingly good things that are GOOD for others too.  helping + gifting + being stylish = great combo!  and it’s not too late to order Noonday 🙂  You have 4 more days!

Hey, I'm Wynne!

Hi, friend! First, I truly am so giddy that you are here. I want you to know I believe in you and all the ways you are growing towards living a more intentional life.  I genuinely hope you are encouraged from our time together here.

A little about me, I’m a type 7 on the enneagram, a total extrovert + people lover, entrepreneur, connector, storyteller, people gatherer, and passionate wife, mama + friend. I feel most alive when I’m exploring new places and surrounded by people I love. Give me a day in the outdoors disconnected from wifi, and I am a happy girl. I run on oat milk lattes, Jesus, gratitude journaling and kitchen dance parties with my four kids.
Welcome, come on in!

let'e be friends
