His Phoebe is founded on the character of Phoebe of Romans 16 whom Paul introduced as a sister, faithful servant, and deacon of the church. I want to support other christian women who are trying to make an impact and difference through their businesses. These women don’t focus their businesses on making millions and being well off. The women featured in this article are one’s who strive to make a difference in the lives of others by pointing them to Christ through their products and services. That is something–I believe– that should be commended and supported, although I’m positive they’d have a humble reaction to the latter statement. Without further adieu, here are these wonderful women bravely live out the spirit and character of Phoebe; and whom I’ve come to admire so much.

Mindi Stearns, Printworthy Proofreading
Why Printworthy Proofreading?
Writing is both an art and a science. Creatively crafting words paints a vivid image and communicates a clear, concise message. But there are rules and guidelines that must be followed to be effective. If one aspect of the art or science is weak, it detracts from the other aspect. Conversely, when these two aspects of art and science work together in harmony, written text has the greatest potential to attain the desired result.
Printworthy Proofreading exists to help you be a more effective communicator. You desire to take your audience (the reader) on a journey through a story or to inform them of a timeless truth that has the potential to lead to transformation. Our goal is to ensure that that message shines its brightest. While honoring your voice and respecting your artistic expression, Printworthy Proofreading can assist in making sure the rules of grammar and syntax are followed appropriately. In the process, credibility is maintained, and potential distractions are removed to facilitate clarity.
As a follower of Jesus, I believe that everything that we say and do can and should reflect Him. I have dedicated my life to serving Him by serving those around me as a wife, a mom (who also homeschools our sons), and as a missionary in South America. In my twenty-five-plus years of experience, I have become proficient in time management, grown in my appreciation for culture, taught and coached advanced subjects that I never took as a student, and found that my greatest joy comes from helping others accomplish their goals. I strive for excellence in all areas of life and would be honored to assist you in achieving excellence with your written words.

Nataly Corona, It Works saleswoman
Hello, My name is Nataly Corona. I am 22 years old and live in Southern California. god transformed my life at the age of 14, and it is honestly the BEST things to ever happen to me. I was brought up in a broken home where there was drug abuse, alcohol abuse, and a place where money lacked. I grew up on food stamps and we had it rough. at the end of my freshman year I had gone to church cap and that’s where God met me at my lowest. I decided to live my life for Him even if I had to do it alone. At the age of 18 my parents decided to move out and get a small apartment. I was left behind and felt to defeated. Just graduated high school and I felt to alone without them. I stayed with a family member, but it wasn’t an environment that i wanted to be in. I spent countless hours crying and praying in my bedroom and I prayer that God would move me. And so He did. A sister from church opened her doors to me and it was and is the biggest blessing in my life. God allowed me to not only move out, but have a great job, and get a new car. No one in my family has done that, I’m not bragging but just showing how God’s mercy and grace will truly find favor in your life.
With that being said i recently had an opportunity come my way and i took it! This year I recently joined a Christian based company called It Works and it allows us to work from our phones. It literally is a blessing. My mission with this company is to help others reach their goals whether it be with their skin care, or theri health. Being able to help others improve themselves and be able to improve myself in the process is a bless. we have amazing skin care, weight control, nutrition, keto, energy, and endurance products!
We have amazing products that really do work! Many people have amazing testimonies about our product! I have gained energy and confidence through my products and why not share them with you?

Tawny Austin, Trades of Hope|Fair trade, ethical fashion business
Hey, I’m Tawny! In 2017, I was a fresh-out-of-Bible-college student (with a TESL degree) who had a passion for missions, but wasn’t able to go onto the international mission field just yet. I had learned about the importance of sustainable business instead of Charity in my college classes, and I was ready to change the world! The only problem, I didn’t have a lot of funds, and I wasn’t able to move across the world (not yet anyway!)
God dropped my Fair Trade, Ethical Fashion business right into my lap at the perfect time! I truly believe He had been preparing me for the moment I heard I could start my own business that would create sustainable jobs around the world WITHOUT having to leave the country or even spend tons money!
Trades of Hope is a Missional Business that works with artisans all over the world to empower women out of poverty. We do this through sustainable business– not charity. We are business partners. They create beautiful, handmade jewelry, bags, scarves, and home decor; women (and men!) in the USA market it.

Bethney Stanberry-Jacob, The Wholehearted Home
The Wholehearted Home was born out of a desire to create opportunities for inviting Gods’ presence into the daily rhythm of life. Displaying the truth of God’s Word in your home or office is a great way to intentionally renew your mind throughout the day, to teach your children scripture, and works well as a conversation starter with guests and colleagues. The Wholehearted Home offers scripture, hymn, and custom digital prints with a minimalist aesthetic in a variety of sizes that can easily be printed at home or at your favorite print shop. Displaying biblical encouragement and instruction prominently in my own home has often turned a bad day around and has been a source of wisdom and strength for the everyday challenges I experience at home with my little ones. My hope is that these simple prints will help us to set our minds and hearts on God’s truth as we go about our day.
