The Key Story

My name is Mary. I am a graphic designer and artist.  A few years ago I was struggling with the significance of my life... I mean, who doesn't!  I know God has a plan but the plan He had for me seemed to be a mystery.  I'm a wife and a mom, and really, that’s enough!  Being a mother is the most important part of my “God Plan” but in my heart something seemed to be missing.  

As a believer in Jesus Christ, how was I to be "a worker for the harvest” sitting in front of my computer all day?  With a special needs child I wasn't really able to travel into the mission field like many with my church.  So I prayed for an answer.  What was my purpose in His Kingdom plan? This was 2007. 

About 2 weeks later I was working on a project for a client and working with an image of an antique key in my photo editing software.  As I turned the key to fit the working space of the file I accidentally created a duplicate.  Intrigued, I turned it again in the opposite direction and the 3 keys made the cross of Christ!  At that moment I heard in my spirit, "I AM the Key of the Kingdom of Heaven." This totally gave me chills so I grabbed my bible and went to Matthew 16:19, "I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven...”  Then I heard, "I AM for all."  ... He did this on the cross!

I knew at that moment I was to do something with this profound and beautiful gift. But what? ...uh, make a piece of jewelry!! And, the Key to the Kingdom® design was born. Then my battle began.  I knew absolutely nothing about creating or manufacturing jewelry.  It's exciting how God asks us to do things that are way out of our comfort zone; to take risks, to step out and say YES and just trust in Him. Now, having walked through the door of faith, the Key to the Kingdom®, rich in symbolism, is a meaningful treasure that can be cherished by its owner, a special gift to a loved one, or to open the heart of a brand new friend. 

My Kingdom plan? By His grace, to play my part in reaching the world with the Gospel of Christ by helping Christian missions through this project.  My hope and prayer is that the Key to the Kingdom® will unlock new opportunities for those who wear it to share the good news of eternal life through Jesus style!

10% of profits from the Key to the Kingdom® sales are going towards missions that share the Gospel of Christ and care for impoverished and hurting people.
