Style for Justice: Noonday Jewelry

by Andrea Cooley

As a mom/wife/writer/producer in Iowa, it’s easy to feel like my ability to impact the world in my day-t0-day life is limited. I know raising kids is a huge responsibility, and one that I don’t take lightly, but you know what I mean. I’m not feeding orphans, working at a homeless shelter, or going on trips to Africa.

I’ll be honest, sometimes the idea of working directly in the mission field, getting your hands dirty, and seeing instant results, sounds glamorous. I know that’s not the case, but someone else’s life always sounds more exciting, right? Pursuing any calling from God requires sacrifice, hard work, and plenty of monotonous days. Maybe God will have me on a trip or in situations like that in the future, but for now, I will serve him where I am and find ways to make an impact from the middle of Iowa.

Noonday Collection Style for JusticeThis week, I’m doing my small part to support women in other countries by hosting a Noonday Collection jewelry trunk show! I’m not the kind of person who hosts “shopping” parties. EVER. I always feel so awkward inviting friends over to shop and feel obligated to buy something. But Noonday Collection is something I am more than happy to promote and support.

I’ve heard and read a lot about Noonday, but I’ve never been to a show or seen the products in person, so I’m pumped to partner with them and learn more about their mission. What I already know is that they advocate for orphans and helps others rise out of poverty. Every purchase helps create a better life for women and families in other countries.

Here’s an awesome infographic that breaks it down:

If you read She Reads Truth, you probably already know that right now a group of amazing women are in Rwanda on a #StyleforJustice trip. I can’t wait to hear more about their trip.

What Noonday is doing to empower women is awesome and you get to look GREAT while helping them. Seriously, I’ve been flipping through the catalog and it’s dangerous how amazing everything is! Knowing that every piece is handmade by women and that the proceeds help them earn a fair wage, take care of their families, and grow their business is awesome.

Here are a few of my favorite pieces. It will be hard to narrow down my order!
