Heartache exists all around us. Often we don’t even have to look outside our own home to find it. At some point we will all encounter brokenness.
So, what do you do? How should you respond? It is all so overwhelming and awkward.
You want to comfort to those who are in anguish and share hope. You try to avoid worn-out clichés, but they still surface when you show compassion.
Or, suppose comforting others comes naturally to you. But, you want a special way to show you care.
Maybe it’s you facing hardship and you need nurturing.
If so, the Legacy Collection is for you! These soaps are designed to comfort and encourage. Okay, but how?

The Legacy Collection is a line of soaps that tell inspirational stories. The colors, fragrance, and design are all symbolic in nature.

The Inspiration for the Legacy Collection
As a victim of domestic violence, I am no stranger to anguish. It was in that dark season of life that I learned to make soap. At the same time, I discovered love of Nubian goats. Soap making provided me with a marketable skill and individuality. But, it was a short-term fix.
Bad became worse as is often the case in domestic violence. In the end, I extracted myself from that relationship, relocated, and began the long journey of healing.
It was there in the midst of grief that God showed me a powerful healing metaphor in the very process of soap making itself.
What is the Soap Making Metaphor?
Soap requires the use of a caustic compound: lye. But, when mixed with oils a metamorphosis occurs, a gentle and luxurious soap forms.
Domestic violence is caustic like lye. Yet, God took that hardship and combined it with the oils of His mercy and grace. The metamorphosis: a broken life transformed into a beautiful testimony.
My signature bar, Ashes to Beauty, shares the triumph over trials story through the colors, fragrance design and an insert included in the soap packaging. While I discovered this insight in the context of domestic violence, it can be generalized to any form of suffering. Cancer, chronic disease, job loss, divorce, all feel caustic. Yet, God adds the oils of His mercy and grace to transform us through those hardships into a beautiful testimony.
