This has been on my heart for a while now and I’m sharing because simply, I feel the Lord is calling me to.

I’m not here to bash companies, but to expose the evil that is rampant in so many companies these days. I joined BC (Beautycounter) because I believed in their mission to change the face of the beauty industry. What I did not realize was that they were planning to change a whole lot more.

In my 18 month journey with BC, I learned a lot and I’m grateful for what God showed me in that time. I knew the direction of that company was going in an opposite direction of my faith, and I struggled daily with what to do. How could I continue to ask my dearest family and friends and unsuspecting clients to support a company who I knew were secretly and soon openly taking such strong anti life, anti Christian positions? I knew the Lord would show me the right time to leave, I just didn’t know when.

As June approached and I awaited the launch of their extreme gender neutral and LBGTQ agenda, I knew my time was likely coming to an end. That month they promoted many opposing, anti-Christian stances and I knew I couldn’t continue to support this. I figured I could bow out quietly and move on with my life. But what I didn’t expect was to be approached by upper management and accused of harassment for reaching out, in love, to a fellow consultant who had lost her way. Their desperate pleas to get me to agree to their “laws” felt more like St Thomas Moore, who was asked over and over again to accept the divorce of Henry VIII. Pretty crazy concept that He was martyred for the defense of marriage of a man and woman and here I was trying to defend the dignity of unions of man and woman. Modern day hidden martyrdoms are happening everyday.

Long story short, after that conversion and a realization that they were indeed funding and supporting a company who were actively promoting contraception, abortion and early sexual education, the deal was done. I could no longer comply with the devils demands and made my way out. This is the way the Lord had wanted it, and I give Him all the glory and credit no matter the grief and opposition I confronted. After all He told us these words which were a great consolation to me at that time..

“Beloved, do not be surprised at the fiery trial when it comes upon you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you. But rejoice insofar as you share Christ’s sufferings, that you may also rejoice and be glad when his glory is revealed. If you are insulted for the name of Christ, you are blessed, because the Spirit of glory and of God rests upon you.” -1 Peter 4:12-14

Finally, I propose this. Do not be afraid to go against the culture. Do not be afraid to stand up for your faith. “But, when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on earth?” -Luke 18:8. Who is consoling our Lord when he sees such opposition to His teachings? When He feels such rejection of His love? Does he have no where to rest His head and no one to console His heart? I share this because in the last 7 months since I left, many women have reached out to me who are in the same predicament. Almost always they feel stuck and afraid to leave. But my message to you is: Be not afraid! God is bigger and there is a great freedom in letting go of any situations in your life that are causing distress and compromising your faith. “And whoever shall not receive you, nor hear your words, when you depart out of that house or city, shake off the dust of your feet.” – Matthew 10:14
