We've got big news: after nine abundant, life-giving, and mission-minded years we have decided to close All Good Things Collective.
This decision was prayerfully made with full hearts and open hands. As a team, we have felt God nudging us to take a step of obedience and worshipfully steward what He has given us. While this decision is bittersweet, we are confident that God will continue to use this ministry as a launching point for the Kingdom. We know that sometimes you have to let good things go, to let new things grow, and we firmly believe things are growing over here.
We didn't start All Good Things to make a million bucks or to retire early. To be honest, we wouldn't have thought we could anyhow. All Good Things (originally called Naptime Diaries) started out of a desperate need for God's word to cover the walls of our hearts and home amid a really hard season. Come to find out, we weren't the only ones who needed beautiful reminders of God's promises during trials and triumphs alike. As God blew on our little small business, giving it favor and momentum, we started to see that we could use it as a tool for the Kingdom—and that was the real dream.
So many small businesses do what they do, not to build beautiful lives for themselves, but because small business can mean Kingdom business. They do it because more profit equals more giving. They do it because employing people means empowering them. They do it to take what God has given them and wield it for His glory.
We feel like the most blessed people in the world to have shared this space with you for nearly a decade. We have seen God move in ways far greater than we could have dreamed or imagined.
By joining-arms with our Kingdom Business, you have partnered with us in supporting adoptions, and foster care. You have employed single moms and families in transition. You have given to non-profits, churches, and ministries on a local and global level.
All along, we knew All Good Things was more than a print shop—we knew God was up to something great. We look back, brimming with gratitude, and look forward, overflowing with hope.
It is with very full hearts that we prayerfully enter this next season, asking God to use our remaining time as All Good Things for His glory. We will remain open until the end of the year, and we've got some big plans in place to celebrate all that He has done.
Here's the good news: we still have a few months to run fast and hard together in this community towards an abundant life. Practically, here's what that means:
- You still have a little more time to fill your life with God's word by ordering your favorite print, scripture tool, or t-shirt!
- We get to celebrate the season of Advent together, one last time! Knowing that it will be our last, this Advent season feels even more sacred and special. Pre-orders will be officially available next Tuesday, September 17th!
- We get to count the fruit. Do you have a testimony about your favorite All Good Things product? We'd be so blessed to hear it! Share how God has moved in and through this Kingdom-Business to speak truth into your life by using the hashtag #AGTstory.
With (very) grateful hearts,
The All Good Things Collective Team
