Hello There! My name is Lexi! I am Jesus lovin', coffee guzzlin', one-woman show behind Almond Tree & Company. I began selling my creations on Etsy two years ago, but through prayer, I have felt the Lord placing this pursuit within me to go all in with this business. Two years ago I named this business "Almond Tree & Co." because the significance of the almond tree in the bible was about 'new life'. But, recently was asked if I named my business after Jeremiah 1:11-12. To be honest, I hadn't read much of Jeremiah. Here is the verse: " "The the Lord said to me, "Look, Jeremiah! What do you see?" And I replied, "I see the branch from an almond tree." And the Lord said to me, "That's right, and it means that I am watching, and I will certainly carry out all my plans." " The context of this is that Jeremiah was giving excuses as to why he couldn't do what the Lord asked him to do. But, He reassured Jeremiah that he is qualified to do what He has asked him to do and that He is in control and will carry out his plans for Jeremiah. WOW! Since then, I have made this the verse that my business represents. As I pursue this business even more, I feel the Lord reminding me (just like Jeremiah) that He is in control and will carry out all His plans for me. Come with me on this journey! I feel big things coming! God bless!
