This is a long one, but a fun one This actually happened this time last year. Amanda came for a visit in October with a couple friends. For months she’d been talking about wanting a 5mm semicircle wing/voi pair and about a month before her parents had contacted me about wanting to get her something Dyed4you as a gift. So I filled them in on what she’d been longing for and planted an idea the Father dropped in my heart – have Amanda dye her own gift without knowing it was for her. » more »
This is a fun story because there’s lots to share! It starts with a dance team in VT (Living Hope Christian Church) ordering 14×72 scarves to use as sashes and special order 8mm 45×108 silks that were divided in half with 2 flag seams added to make a pair. You saw video I made of one pair of the flags before I sent them out.
Even just from seeing my demo video the team gave an awesome response:

This is the story of a woman who received a 35×84 Jehovah Rohi silk as a gift from someone at her church (see video of her worshiping with it in a corporate setting).
On March 20, 2011, I headed to church knowing I would be taking care of the little ones for the day. I ended up having only one child to watch, and she was the pastor’s granddaughter. She loves to worship too, so I took her and we went to the sanctuary to worship! » more »
I’m doing another giveaway! I just made this “man scarf”(aka 6×24) called Breakthrough (same scarf in the Strong in the Lord Dyed4you Art image) and the Lord said it needed to go to a husband of someone in the Dyed4you community. I’m not certain if it will be given as a gift to the husband or used in warfare on behalf of him… but it’s “for” him.

Scarf stories like this remind me why I love my job! I ask that as you read, you come into prayerful agreement with the word the Lord gave this woman about her husband. And for those who don’t know why this hits so close to home for me, you may want to read my marriage testimony too!
I ordered this scarf because I wanted something to go under my husband’s pillow. Something that would capture him. I really thought I would get a scarf that would kinda tell about who God had planned him to be. Like a proclamation. However I didn’t tell Meghan at all what I wanted this scarf for or why I was ordering it… nor did she ask me.

This silk was an interesting one because as it was being birthed a song came forth too! So I recorded it and uploaded a video of it with the camera facing the silk. When we looked at the video, a face was apparent in the silk – it was especially funny because several people who DON’T normally see things in the silk saw it because it was so clear.

This is sort of a fun story for me because God stretched me in the middle of it too! Many of you know that Dyed4you isn’t really just about getting a beautiful piece of silk, it’s about getting a word from the Lord that happens to have a tangible silk reminder
Increasingly I sense the Lord shifting me away from simply “executing” creating scarves (in other words, when people simply pick the scarf they want like you would in a department store) and focus on delivering His word in season to those who order. The interesting part of this is helping first time buyers understand how it all works! And there in begins our story. » more »
I love getting to share this story with you all because it demonstrates one of the reasons I love the Dyed4you community so much! » more »
I love to get to be part of blessing someone – so when I got an email from Amanda E that she felt God prompted her to get a pair of pillowcases for a mutual friend, I was thrilled! Here’s her initial response:
The pillowcases are beautiful and the word with with them is so spot on and precious to me. I love the anointing oil one heart because it is literally what god has done in my marriage with my husband and it is truly been a miracle and now God is healing my family and bringing us closer than ever. » more »
Amanda E called me after leaving this holiday party that the Holy Spirit commandeered – I was SO blessed to hear this story and am thrilled she’s taken the time to write it down to share with you all (with the permission of those who were present of course!). God is AMAZING! » more »
This is just a short scarf story about a scarf I made in May called Fertile. When I made the scarf I asked the purchaser (who was giving it as a gift) if she knew if the recipient was trying to get pregnant because it was what I sensed God showing me, but she didn’t know. » more »
Kent Henry has been doing worship for almost as long as I’ve been alive. He’s led worship on six of Integrity Music’s Hosanna! recordings as well as 22 of his own. He and his wife Carla are friends of ours, elders at our church, and their daughter happens to be married to our lead pastor » more »
It has been quite the day!!!! I woke up to a phone call from my aunt who told me that my grandpa had passed away at 6:45am. I was just overwhelmed with sadness because we were planning on leaving the very next day to travel to see him in the hospital. I was feeling sad not just because he passed away but also because I had not seen him since my mother’s death in 1995. Unfortunately, after my mom’s passing, her whole side of the family basically shut my dad, brother and I out of their lives along with some other pretty horrible things. » more »
Kim shared the few pieces of the puzzle God had given her about her scarf when she ordered and immediately God told me which style to make – a modified version of The Violent Take it By Force. » more »
I smiled when I saw Kiara’s sweet comment come in, knowing it was #625 – the next D4Y Blog Giveaway number I posted on Facebook that she’d won and then later realized I hadn’t mentioned why 625 had been picked so I added:
By the way, 625 was picked because of Matthew 6:25, “Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing?” » more »
