Susie Bock with What We Fabricate || Artist Film Feature

 

Today I want to feature Susie and her Etsy Shop: What We Fabricate. 

CUSTOM | HANDMADE | LEATHER ITEMS

Susie started her Etsy Shop so she could use her creativity to make custom leather items and then donate her profits to various ministries around the world. Take a look: 

Isn't she amazing? She donates all her profit to: Mercy Ships, On The Red Box, Iris Ministries, and Calcutta Mercy Ministries. 

So far she's made me a watchband and a business card holder, and I already have additional orders. You have to check out her shop for yourself: 

I can't begin to explain how much Susie means to me as a friend, and she continually inspires me to use my talent for Christ. During her interview, I really felt encouraged to use my creativity in some ministry-oriented way. It's so easy for us to get swallowed up by our adult responsibilities, and I know for me especially, it's easy to get sucked into work and trying to be "successful in my career." [Whatever that means.] I don't want to spend most of my time just working to make a living, I want my life to mean something, to be used for a much greater purpose that's outside of myself. 

Ministry needs to be where we're at right now.

What she said resonates with me. I don't know how or what it is that I should do, but I want to stop focusing on myself, and spend my time on something that actually matters, that will make a difference in this world.  Sometimes we need a little bit of a wake-up call. 

Thank you, Susie, for sharing your story and inspiring me (and probably many others) to invest in God's work.
