The Bachelor's Madison Prewett Wears MSMH's Blessing Bracelets!
Watching The Bachelor is one of my favorite guilty pleasures! It all began years ago while we were living with my in-laws. My mother-in-law loved this “new” show, and together we would all sit around the TV. We would blush with embarrassment at some of the scenes and ultimately end up laughing, curious, and anxious to see what happened next. It became our weekly routine together.
This past season, I was watching with my girls and suddenly, my phone started to blow up with text messages: “Look at Madison Prewett’s arm… I think she is wearing a Blessing Bracelet from MSMH.” I received screen shot after screen shot, questioning if it was really ours. The answer was YES, it was! She not only wore it on the show, but she wore it almost every day of the entire season. She quickly became the world’s favorite (for all the right reasons), and I hoped that one day I would have the opportunity to say “THANK YOU.” Then in hometown visits, her dad was wearing a MSMH Blessing Bracelet. Even her mom and sisters all had them on. I had to find out where they got them and the story behind their Blessing Bracelets. IT WAS A GOD MOMENT. LISTEN TO THIS STORY...
Before Madi was chosen to go on the show, Coach Chad Prewett was at a Dallas Cowboys football game, and he happened to meet Tom Thomas (investor, friend, mentor, and co-owner of My Saint My Hero). Tom started to chat with Coach Prewett (Auburn University Basketball Coach). He told him a little about My Saint My Hero, proceeded to take a Blessing Bracelet off his wrist, and gifted it to Coach Prewett with a little prayer of blessings for his upcoming season. As Tom was about to leave, he turned back and asked Coach Prewett if he had any kids. Chad proceeded to tell him about his 3 girls and amazing wife, Tonya. Tom immediately called me and said, “I met this incredible guy and he is the head coach of the Auburn basketball team. He has 3 daughters and a wonderful wife. Please send them a few Blessing Bracelets.” We sent him a few bracelets the next day. (This is a frequent request because we LOVE to wear and share blessing bracelets. I did not notice or remember the name; I simply sent him the bracelets.)
WELL, those bracelets became the gift that Coach Prewett gave his family as a tangible reminder that no matter what they are doing and no matter where they may travel, they are always connected through LOVE AND PRAYER.
Madi went on to Season 24 of The Bachelor that next month, and the Blessing Bracelet became her touchstone to her family. They all wore them, they prayed for each other nightly, and even though it was months with no contact, they remembered that through love and prayer they are always united.
AND HERE WE ARE TODAY — launching the Family Virtues Collection with the PREW CREW!
I had the incredible honor of receiving a FaceTime call from Coach Prewett and Madi a few months ago. The day they called, my two girls were with me as we were working together to fulfill orders. We stopped everything. We were FACETIMING with MADI PREWET and her DAD… now that does not happen every day!!! We were so excited, and then as we settled into the conversation, we began to authentically connect with Coach Prewett and Madi. We prayed about the idea of working together. Together we asked for God to guide our actions, guide our thoughts, and guide our work. If we could bring glory to God through a collaboration, then let His will be done! We were in tears talking together… it was a GOD MOMENT. As we got off the phone, we committed to praying about it and allowing the Holy Spirit to guide us. After the call, I went upstairs to my office as Ellie (my daughter) worked downstairs. We both went into prayer and wrote down our thoughts and ideas on how we could collaborate with the Prew Crew. We came back together an hour or so later, and as we shared our notes with each other, we realized that we both wrote down, almost verbatim, the same idea, the same concept, the same words, and the same description!!! NOW that does NOT happen EVER! We are often close, but not like this! We immediately sent it over to the Prew Crew, and they jumped on the phone and said, “Oh my goodness, you nailed it. This is our family and this is what we stand for. Yes, let’s do this!” The collaboration began at that very moment! And now on AUGUST 3rd 2020, we are launching the Family Virtues Collection, inspired by The Prew Crew!!! May the love that was poured into the creation of these bracelets be felt and may the blessings be received.
Another God moment: The Prewett family church is launching their annual Prayer Fast on August 3rd... yes, the very same day. So together, we will be joining in prayer for 21 days and holding in our prayers everyone who wears and will wear one of the Family Virtues bracelets. Together we hold in prayer all families around the world.
Wear One, Share One. Together we are a blessing to one another. Together we make a difference. Together we are family. Together we rise!
