Lily & Sparrow Boutique started to become a dream for us back in 2009 when we were still living in Florida. We both felt a calling to move to Indianapolis, IN and that journey began for us in April of 2012. Over the course of 2 years, the dream was still in the back of our minds as we worked various other jobs. The Lord connected us to an incredible couple at our church in September of 2013, who had an open space in the back of their hair salon. The most amazing part is they had a dream of one day having a boutique attached to the salon. The Lord had His hand in everything as the pieces started to fall into place. Our dream became a reality on March 1, 2014 when we opened the doors to Lily & Sparrow Boutique!

Where does our name come from?

Matthew 6

28And why worry about your clothing? Look at the lilies of the field and how they grow. They don’t work or make their clothing, 29 yet Solomon in all his glory was not dressed as beautifully as they are. 30 And if God cares so wonderfully for wildflowers that are here today and thrown into the fire tomorrow, he will certainly care for you. Why do you have so little faith?

Matthew 10

29 What is the price of two sparrows—one copper coin[k]? But not a single sparrow can fall to the ground without your Father knowing it. 30 And the very hairs on your head are all numbered. 31 So don’t be afraid; you are more valuable to God than a whole flock of sparrows.

The Lord placed these verses on our hearts when we were praying through the process of opening up the boutique. He uses these verses as incredible reminders every day. In Matthew 6, it talks about how our worry will do nothing for us because we have no reason to worry. The Lord will provide for every need that we have. God daily proves himself faithful by taking care of our every need as we continue to grow and learn in this new world of being small business owners. We believe He will never leave or forsake us and we cling to that every single day!

Matthew 10 gives us such an incredible visual of how The Lord sees each of us. It's so amazing how He knows us so intimately that He knows the exact number of hairs on our head. As women, we are constantly comparing ourselves with what society deems as beautiful and it is so easy to see past our own beauty and worth. This verse stuck out to us so much because it shows just how much value each of us has!

Our heart behind opening up Lily & Sparrow is that every person who walks into our store or purchases something from our website will know the value and worth that they have. YOU were created in the image of God, perfect and whole. Jesus cares for each one of us so deeply, and what an honor it is to have a platform to be an encouragement to women in the struggle of daily life.

Thank you for stopping by to visit us! We pray that you leave knowing just how beautiful, valuable and worthy you are!
