Jhovana,
Thank you for the beautiful gloves/arm warmers :) It is very cold here in Tennessee right now and I (and my daughter) will use them alot! Im happy to know that this job is helping you and your family. I pray you will get to learn more of the Bible, as you desire. The Word of God is helping to sustain me during a season of illness. God is trully good. Blessings to you and your family.

Dear Jhovana,

I just received my heather gray Cara in the mail, and I absolutely love it! I wanted to thank you for making this beanie, because to me it's more then just something to wear. It helps me realize all the dedication and love you and all the KKi women put into making their products. When I saw this beanie as part of the fall 2014 collection, I saw it as a sign. I've been an avid lover of krochet kids for as long as I can remember, and have always wanted to intern with them. So I take your beanie as a sign that I one day will be with krochet kids, in whatever way possible.

Thank you for such a beautiful and meaningful product! I love it!

Jhovana,
You are a remarkable woman! You did an amazing job on my beanie and I could not be happier with it. Your work and efforts to help your family are inspiring, and I find it even more inspiring that you put God so ahead of all things else in your life. I am not religious myself, but I respect those that are and I think that is a beautiful thing. Continue your hard work and everything will work out for the best, just as it is meant to be. I'm sending good vibes your way! :)
