The Why Behind Chellbee Christian Stationery

I remember sharing a prayer I wrote for a friend in 2018 during a period when she was experiencing anxiety and thoughts of suicide. I knew the only thing that would get her through this was prayer and bible verses.

But I didn’t want to just pray for her. I also shared with her the prayer that I wrote so that she could pray it over herself. As well as the scriptures that I was standing on for her during prayer.

Shortly after she read it, she texted me and said, “you should sell these.” I giggled a bit and didn’t give it a second thought.

But the Holy Spirit had other plans for me. In the Fall of 2020, I relaunched this business while pregnant with my 2nd child. The COVID pandemic and police brutality made me fearful for the future of my unborn son.

I knew I needed to use the fuel to pull me closer to the word of God. You will find all my products are born out of my need to create a closer relationship with the Lord.

We should not just read the word; we should dedicate ourselves to deepening our relationship with Christ. ChellbeeShop is all about sharing bible verses, affirmations, prayer cards, bible study journals, and bible-based truth to help busy women stay connected to the word of God.

Where can you find Chellbee?

The few moments of free time I have from my full-time job in human resources, marriage, and motherhood are spent working in my Villa Rica, GA-based home studio.

A team of one I can be found bible studying, creating new bible verse and affirmation card sets, finding supplies that will ensure each of our products wow our customers, and creating content for my blog and YouTube channel.

As a creator, the best part of my workday is looking out my window to see Jay (my husband) and Rose (my 3-year-old) in the garden while rocking Kayden (my newborn) in his chair with my foot and running the printer and Silhouette machine to produce new products for my shop.

Beautiful Brown Girl

The representation of black women in art has historically been limited. I am grateful to artists like Nicholle Kobi, Debra Cartwright, Jenna Holliday, and Morgan Harper Nichols for illustrating our stories.

Maybe I’m looking in the wrong place. But I have yet to find a consistent source of Christian Stationery that shares our stories in a way that truly represents the multifaceted lives of women like me – as a believer of Christ, woman, wife, mother, and lover of paper.

Chellbee Christian Stationery is committed to creating beautiful work that celebrates and uplifts Christ and black women.

Shop our brown girl collection which offers a wide range of Christian greeting cards and stickers including many that feature uplifting messages and Bible verses.

Let’s be clear there is more representation of black women in art and stationery is improving, thanks to the work of talented artists and companies that are committed to diversity and inclusivity. These beautiful works celebrate the beauty and strength of black women and provide an opportunity for people to send messages of love, encouragement, and faith to their loved ones.

Thank you so much for visiting my shop. Praying you will keep praising God even if…
