Fierce Faith was created at the height of the 2020 Covid 19 pandemic!

Sitting in my office, day after day, wondering if the world would ever return to normal I was convicted to do something more productive with my time so I designed my first ever blanket throw.

I wanted this super soft blanket to be a gift that would show someone they are loved and special. That the person receiving the throw would be wrapped in inspiring and comforting words, super soft crystal velvet and warm Sherpa fleece.

I have chosen Compassion International as our charity that we give 10% of all profits to. If you’d like to find out more about this fabulous charity, please do click here.

Why we chose the words: Comfort, Inspire, Encourage…

…Comfort [noun]

A state of physical ease and freedom from pain or constraint. The easing or alleviation of a person’s feelings of grief or distress.

…Inspire [verb]

Fill (someone) with the urge or ability to do or feel something, especially to do something creative. Create (a feeling, especially a positive one) in a person. Animate someone with (a feeling). Give rise to. Breathe in (air); inhale.

…Encourage [verb]

Give support, confidence, or hope to (someone). Persuade (someone) to do or continue to do something by giving support and advice. Stimulate the development of (an activity, state, or belief).

The power of three simple words…

These are the dictionary definitions for comfort, inspire and encourage. Three simple words. They aren’t that long, they’d fit comfortably into a hashtag or a meme. But they are words that pack a real punch when you take them apart and see the meanings inside them.

The strength of words, even simple words, is always a surprise, whether its quickly written on a birthday card, sent in a text or whispered over the phone to a loved one. Wrong words like failure or weak can mark us for life. Right affirming words can send us soaring and give us so much hope.

That’s why we thought long and hard about the words we use on our blankets. It took many hours to come up with the selection you now see. Each word is packed with significance and we hope they will reveal their positive power to you as you sit, wrapped in the gorgeous soft material and maybe use the words as an idea for prayer or simply meditate on what they mean for you.
