When I decided to start the Stories of Hope series, I immediately knew I wanted to have Andrea of Wonderfully Made Clothing Company share her story.
I first connected with Andrea through Instagram and have been truly blessed as I've gotten to know her. Andrea is the founder of Wonderfully Made Clothing Company, a beautiful clothing brand inspired by her precious daughter, and founded on the idea that every single one of us is wonderfully made by God.
Through Wonderfully Made, Andrea offers clothing that is stylish, flattering, comfortable, and size inclusive--offering so many girls and women the opportunity to feel their very best in what they're wearing. Andrea's clothing selection is fantastic, but it's her mission that really stands out.
As a therapist who works with a wide range of little girls, adolescent females, and adult women, this kind of inclusivity is something that's close to my heart.
I'm so honored that Andrea has allowed me to share her story here. I know you'll be encouraged and inspired by her.
