Being a proud mother, Debra always showcased her daughter’s gifts, talents and accomplishments to her immediate family and friends. The positive reactions received sparked an interest in Debra to have Christina’s writings read and songs heard by many. She envisioned the words and expressions of Christina displayed on items such as plaques, ornaments, wall art, mugs, stationary, bookmarks, apparel and more. The possibilities were endless!
However, Christina didn’t share the vision of her mother at first. As a young child, she felt that her creativity was a form of self expression. They weren’t meant to be shared. Until one day, at the age of 12, she was approached by her mother’s colleague to write a poem on behalf of her sons as a Mother’s Day present to her. Christina didn’t understand why someone would want her to convey a message so personal on behalf of another. Her mother explained to her that she has a special and unique gift that is not only a way to “escape” personally, but that her words, voice and wisdom are an encouragement to others as well. It was important to Debra for Christina to embrace this truth, to have confidence in herself and to believe that who she is and what she has is needed in this world.
Though On and On was birthed from a mother’s excitement and belief in her child’s abilities and her desire to share her proud moments with others, as time progressed, the impact of On and On’s vision also grew. Witnessing greatness unfold in her daughter’s life inspired Debra to tap in to unexplored desires of her own. With over 30 years in the corporate world, she wondered what her “next” would look like post retirement. She’d always been told that she was good with her hands so she decided to venture back to school to become a Licensed Massage Therapist. Debra combined her experiences, passion for massage therapy, hospitality and the well-being of others to offer support in their life's journey.
Realizing that inspiration transcends displayed words of encouragement, Debra and Christina embraced the vision of enterprise by establishing multi-faceted components to address the multi-facets of our lives. We all have many roles and commitments to tend to at various times and in several ways. Therefore, it is vital that in every aspect we aim for a balanced lifestyle of wellness.
Regardless of our personal walk in life, we all need that special someone who genuinely believes in the gift that we are and who will encourage, motivate and uplift us to fulfill our God given purposes. Just as we are inspired by each other to live our best lives, by faith we are persuaded to be instruments of inspiration for you!
