Big Changes While I am Waiting

There have been many big changes around my soaping workshop lately - the least of them is my inventory is way up!  That is because my sales have been way down..........pout.  I figure God is giving me some down time to get organized and get some things done.  So, while I am waiting.....

What have I done?

Well......I became incorporated!  I am now Faith, Soaps & Love, LLC!!!  Woot!

And......I started my own website!  I still sell on Etsy but now purchases can be made at www.faithsoapsandlove.com

And.......I became a member of The Handcrafted Soapmakers Guild!  I know, who knew there was such a thing, right?!  The Guild is the only international non-profit trade association serving the handcrafted soap industry.



And.......I completely organized my soap room!  I can now grab bars of soap to fill orders without moving around dozens of baskets to find the right ones!  Here is my soap wall:



And.....I have made tons and tons of soap! Here is what the curing rack looked like a couple days ago....it is even more full now! 



So, while I am waiting for sales to pick up, I am reminded of this fabulous song by John Waller.  Here is a link to the song and below are the lyrics.

While I'm Waiting | John Waller

I'm waiting
I'm waiting on You, Lord
And I am hopeful
I'm waiting on You, Lord
Though it is painful
But patiently, I will wait

I will move ahead, bold and confident
Taking every step in obedience
While I'm waiting
I will serve You
While I'm waiting
I will worship
While I'm waiting
I will not faint
I'll be running the race
Even while I wait

I'm waiting
I'm waiting on You, Lord
And I am peaceful
I'm waiting on You, Lord
Though it's not easy
But faithfully, I will wait
Yes, I will wait
I will serve You while I'm waiting
I will worship while I'm waiting
I will serve You while I'm waiting
I will worship while I'm waiting
I will serve you while I'm waiting
I will worship while I'm waiting on You, Lord
