Recently, I had someone order a scarf for someone who is Russian and speaks no English. I have a Facebook friend who is Russian – someone I had never met before, but was acquainted with through mutual friends because she is part of our online church family – and so I contacted her and asked if she would translate for me, which she was happy to do. As a thank you, Father instructed me to send her a silk of her own 🙂
One of the things I love about this testimony is that it touches on a principle I’ve mentioned before, which is that the silk letters are a jumping off point – they’re the beginning of a conversation with the Father, not a conversation in its entirety 🙂 » more »
This is a fun story for me because I got to be one of the gift givers on it! One evening the Father began downloading a vision for me of a rather elaborate beaded veil for one of our prayer team members at church. I felt like it wasn’t just to be a gift from me, but rather from the whole team, and when I shared the idea with them they were totally on board too. » more »
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 »
