When I was younger, no one ever told me that I would be something great, or even that I was something great. I was bullied every single day, extremely shy, didn't have a lot of friends, and never really experienced any encouragement. I never thought I would be good at anything, and I definitely never thought I would end up running a fashion blog when I wore the same lime green fleece sweatshirt to school every single day in the third grade... Yes, even after I got GUM ON IT THAT WOULDN'T COME OFF... *face palm to third grade Sam* AND I wore Birkenstocks with socks every day...
All that to say, my goal my entire life has been to make people feel loved and encouraged and purposeful. When I became a believer in Christ, that became even more my mission and that's the reason behind creating HeyThereSam. I love clothes and I love how confident they can make you feel, but I used to be very insecure even behind the cutest of outfits. I'm even more interested in helping women feel confident in their true identity in Christ underneath all of that!
"You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on it's stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house." - Matthew 5:14-15
