I am always in awe of how God connects his children. He crossed my path with Amber’s when she held a meeting to host the local If:Gathering. Because she was already doing a great work, I joined forces with her last fall to host our local gathering in February. Amber loves the Lord with all her heart and tells everyone about how he is working both in Columbus, OH and overseas through her social enterprise, Legacy Candle Co. She exudes with confidence and joy; you’d never know that she grew up in the foster care system and was homeless for a couple years. God met her on the street and Amber’s life changed. She became a successful nurse and then the Lord called her to work in another side of the healing business- rescuing victims of human trafficking. I adore her incredible redemption story!!
All of Legacy’s candles are hand-poured with 100% soy wax so your candle will burn longer and cleaner. This incredible organization supports former victims of human trafficking to create products that are globally sourced and locally crafted.
The women they employ in Africa make beautiful beads and other hand crafted items which are then sold locally in Columbus and online!
GIVEAWAY VALUED AT $53
When Amber and I were both speaking at the Ignite conference a few weeks ago, I told her I wanted to introduce her and her wonderful candles to my community. She graciously offered this fabulous giveaway, valued at $53! Everything you see in the photo below is included: the 8 oz. Amazing Grace candle, 4 oz. Amazing Grace candle in a tin, beautiful hand-crafted bracelet, and gorgeous wooden cross.
I had to let you know that my favorite scent at the Legacy Candle Co. is the Honey & Fig. It’s the perfect candle to burn when enjoying a relaxed evening! I keep one in the kitchen on the stove and use it while I am cleaning up after dinner.
And the winner is Mindy, comment left on 6/26! We’ve emailed her. Thanks to all for participating!
