And Just Like That We're Back!
For those of you who don’t know me, Imagine we’re meeting for the first time in class and the teacher tells us to go around and introduce ourselves. Hi! My name is Ariel and I am 32 years old. I am married to my husbae Bryant and we have two interesting children, Joshua and Harper. I enjoy making candles and other products by hand because I found healing from grief and more of who I am through the creation process.
The Deep Stuff
I grew up in the traditions of “Church Culture”. Church culture was do as you're told because I said so. I didn’t understand why I had to go to church every day (besides the fact that my grandfather was the pastor and my grandmother was the first lady). I didn’t understand who Jesus was and how I would have a free life in him. Just like any family, I grew up having a lot of ups and downs but the foundations that I needed to grow were overpowered by the unhealthy principles I believed in. By the time I reached my 20s, I mastered being a victim, holding grudges, and depended on dysfunctional relationships and cycles. Thankfully, Jesus removed the smoke and mirrors and walked me through breaking down the foundations that kept me bound and lifeless. I tried so many things to cover up the pain I was feeling, but through therapy, friendships, and divine moments, I was able to heal and grow. I am passionate about helping the next woman heal because I remember what it was like to have someone do it for me. It was life-changing.
What is TTWN about?
Growing up, my grandmother Nana would take me every year to different tea parties in the Memphis and Dallas area. I loved going to tea parties with her, seeing women from all walks of life sharing inspiration and creativity strengthened me. Though Nana is no longer here with us( she is with our Heavenly Father now) I wanted to continue the legacy she planted in me.
We Are Better As A Community
Most of my personal breakthroughs have happened while I was with a friend I trusted. SUPPORT IS ESSENTIAL !!! There is nothing like being around someone you trust and can be honest with. I am dedicated to creating that environment and eco-friendly products for you to bloom with confidence.
