In August of last year, I made the decision to increase my prices across the board. It only made sense- the economy is rough, the cost of components has increased, etc.
But that was a mistake.
Yes, the economy is rough, the cost to make these products has increased- that’s all true. But it was a mistake for me to lose sight of one of the reasons I began my business. When I decided to take candle-making from a hobby to a business I wanted to provide a HIGH QUALITY, clean product with a price tag that the average mom would be comfortable with. I wanted to share a little piece of joy wherever I could, especially for those moms who were just beginning their “crunchy” journey.
I allowed outside influences to catch my eye and sway my thoughts from doing good in this world to making more money. Not that making money is wrong- it’s not. But I don’t believe God brought this company into fruition simply to make money. I believe He did it to bring joy, to show in the smallest details that He loves us and provides in the kindest of ways.
I’m sorry that I lost sight of this foundational concept. It’s not about the money or making a name for myself. It’s about honoring Jesus in everything I do, including how I do business.
I will be updating all shops and websites to reflect our new price list as soon as possible, so please keep an eye out for that.
And please know this…
Crunchy Mama Candles will NEVER compromise our beliefs, our quality, or our product safety. Jesus is KING, and I will not dishonor my King.
I love y’all dearly!
“Trust in the Lord, and do good; dwell in the land and befriend faithfulness. Delight yourself in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the Lord, trust in him, and he will act. He will bring forth your righteousness as the light, and your justice as the noonday. Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him; fret not yourself over the one who prospers in his way, over the man who carries out evil devices! Refrain from anger, and forsake wrath! Fret not yourself; it tends only to evil. For the evildoers shall be cut off, but those who wait for the Lord shall inherit the land.”
