Inspire - 11/8/2016



I am blessed to be a part of a very creative family.  My Grandfather was a cartoonist, my Mom is a painter, my son is a glass blower and my daughter is an art teacher.   Jewelry has always been my passion.  I took a jewelry class as a young art student and realized pretty quickly that I had found something that I was good at.

But my jewelry making career actually got off to a bit of a bumpy start.  After months of being the star student in that jewelry class, I came to school one day and made a plain silver band inscribed with the words Jesus Saves.  The night before I had gone with a friend to a Bible study and accepted Jesus Christ as my savior.  I made the ring as reminder of that commitment.  When I took the ring to my jewelry instructor for a grade, she said that it was the most uncreative thing I had every done.  But the weird thing was that everyone else loved my ring and wanted one. The meaning of that ring inspired me and changed my life in so many ways.

Since that day I have made 100’s of thousand of rings hoping that their meaning would inspire someone else. If by chance you have one of those rings and it has somehow inspired you, please tell us your story.

Faith - 11/4/2016

Mustard, I don’t really like it much as a condiment but as an herb I highly recommend it. It grows and grows.  It produces beautiful flowers and prolific seeds. The entire plant is useful and it is rarely bothered by pests. It is amazing to think that such beautiful growth can come from such a small unassuming seed. 

A seed of faith is an amazing thing as well.  It grows and grows, makes life beautiful, it is useful everyday, and it definitely helps to deter pests….

…” if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there’, and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.”

 Matthew 17:20

 

Do you have a good mustard recipe?

Hope - 11/1/2016

So what do you do for a living? After almost 50 years, I often struggle with how to answer that question.  In most business settings I respond by saying “I own a manufacturing company” With new acquaintances I usually say I make jewelry.  When filling out a form I typically fill in the occupation box with CEO. 

It is not that I don’t want to answer directly, it just always seems complicated to explain and sometime boastful so I usually just don’t.

The other day I was at the hospital for some routine testing and I noticed a young lady in the waiting area wearing one of the cross necklaces that I designed years ago.  When the nurse called her name she reached up and took hold of the cross. 

When it was my turn the nurse called my name and at the door she greeted me with “good morning Mr. Siemon so what do you do for a living?”  Without hesitation I responded with “I help to share God’s message of hope”

I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you…Ephesians 1:18

Do you know someone that needs a reminder of God’s message of hope?
