Love & Premier

So we had another meeting on the topic of love last week and we discussed "agape" love.  Unfortunately, I don't have my notes handy, but it's good to refresh anyway.  Basically agape is a love created by doing acts of service.  It is a love of commitment and intention.  Agape is not a free-wheeling euphoric feeling kind of love - it's the love created by serving those you love.


The speaker, Randy Gariss shared a few examples of couples whose marriages were struggling and one person in the couple assisted in the reconciliation by serving the other.  It was neat to hear how powerful it was and how that fostered a deeper love.

We meet again tonight so I'm curious to learn what we will be talking about!  Should be good.  (plus we're doing a pasta dinner with everyone that's coming - so that should be yummy!).

Thinking of agape and serving others...I have begun a (renewed) venture with Premier Designs!  Premier is a jewelry company that works by people hosting jewelry shows.  It is beyond an amazing company.  I had my training show last night and here's the jewelry display I had set up:


Oh man, it was so fun.  The jewelry is gorgeous and the company is fantastic to work for.  I'm starting this venture as a way to pay off my student loans a bit quicker (rather than the million years it'd take otherwise, lol...) but it's so much more than that.  It's growing to be a great support system for me in my faith and friendships.  Lindsay, my sponsor, is a doll of a lady.  She has such a strong faith and is such a dear friend (maybe you might remember, I lived with her family late 2012 and early 2013!).  

Anyway, I would LOVE LOVE LOVE it if you could shower me with agape love by hosting your very own jewelry show.  As a hostess, not only would you get a fun girls' night out, but you'd earn free and half price jewelry items!  It's a win win!  (Plus I'd be forever grateful).  Feel free to email me at emily.a.carlson@gmail.com or text or call me at 269-470-3315.  And definitely check out my website with the catalogs at emilycarlson.mypremierdesigns.com They've got some beautiful and funky stuff!

Thank you so much in advance for your support.  I couldn't do this without you and I am so excited for this journey!  Sending my love.
