Welcome to Salt + Clay: Beautiful Purpose. We have been dreaming, planning and praying for months and can hardly believe that the launch of our magazine is almost upon us. Can I get a whoop whoop?
More than anything, we here at Salt + Clay desire to build community. To connect with you the reader in deep and meaningful ways. We are passionate about celebrating and championing you, your home, your heart, your dreams, and your calling, all for your joy and His glory! Helping you discover your beautiful purpose and enjoying what God can do in and through you.
We hope to inspire you with stories of women, just like you who are using their unique talents to bring beauty and effect change in this generation. We believe that women can be powerful atmosphere changers in their homes and beyond by reflecting Jesus in the everyday. I recently came upon this quote by Matthew Arnold, nineteenth-century British poet, and philosopher that speaks to this very idea.
“If ever there comes a time when the women of the world come together purely and simply for the benefit of mankind, it will be a force such as the world has never known.”
Does that stir up something within you? When I first read this quote, I literally felt my breath catch. I can only imagine that this response was a reaction to the enormity of our unrealized possibilities. We are praying that every daughter of the King will embrace her identity, and purpose in Christ and her God-given inheritance of strength, and courage so that she can effect change in this world.
Will you dare to believe that you could be a part of something more? To move the needle of our current culture? Our potential to play a part in this answer of women will be known not only with words but by how we choose to live. May we see the Kingdom of God advanced by women awakened and activated into their specific God-given purpose to influence this world for good, just as salt has the ability to flavor the food it seasons.
We pray that Salt + Clay will inspire, ignite and propel women into realizing their beautiful purpose as vessels carrying a glorious treasure within so that the extraordinary power of God will be seen. Let’s do this!
“But we have this treasure in jars of clay, to show that the surpassing power belongs to God and not to us.”
2 Corinthians 4:7
