BEAUTY FOR ASHES
Our Life. Our Story. Our Home. Est. 2020
There is always curiosity surrounding the name Beauty for Ashes, and we hope that by sharing the story of how it came into our life you can find your own meaning to this special name too. Alex, and her husband explain below how this scripture inspired the name of the beautiful salon we all experience today.
“He will bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair.” Isaiah 61:3
"This scripture has made such an imprint on me and my husband’s hearts that I always wanted to remember it. Due to the loss of my hearing, Lovey, Bandit (our fur babies), and my sweet grandmother last year, I thought I was going to lose it. But God gave me my son to keep me going! God placed the joy of my son during those stormy months of my life. God knew I couldn’t handle that much loss in one year without giving me something to be joyful about. I thank God so much for giving me that joy while I was mourning. I will never forget my losses. It was the biggest loss I had yet to feel in my life. We all mourn over the loss of something. Sometimes it could be a job, partner, finances, not speaking to a loved one, or death, but we forget to look around and see the joy He has for us. We forget that if we lean on Him, He will give us the crown of beauty instead of ashes. This is the reason I decided to name my shop ‘Beauty for Ashes’! I hope that when you come into my shop, my team can be that light of joy to keep you going through the hard days."
