I am enough. Really? How many girls and women can actually say that and believe it? Well, we really are enough, as we are. Personally, when I can truly believe that I am enough, I'm not afraid to tackle anything, because I have nothing to lose! That is the message I love to see others embrace too!
The whole idea for an “I am enough bracelet” began as my mom was about to buy a birthday card for me. As she stood in line, waiting to pay, she re-read the card. She said that it read something like, “Reach for the stars. Be all you can be. You can do it. Happy Birthday.” She said she stood there in shock and thought, “This is terrible! What message am I giving my daughter?” So then she put the card back and chose another card that just said how much she truly loved me – and what a blessing I am in her life. She started talking to my sister and me about the message and then the bracelets began as a way to remind ourselves and other girls of our amazing worth.
Now, I (Kate, age 17) and my sister Julia (age 13) took over the business of spreading the message. Our small business is close to our heart.
The concept was originally geared toward girls, but it has gone far beyond that. It has taken off with a life of its own.
Many people have given them to their friends at bible study, graduation, birthday favors, support for friends going through tough times, kids going away to college, food issues, break-ups, addictions, and my favorite is when someone is wearing theirs, takes it off of her wrist, and then hands it to someone else!!
“I am enough,” means something different for everyone. For us, it means that, With Christ and Because of Christ, I am enough, thanks to Him.
