Fashion With A Purpose
The Soul H2O devotions in the past two weeks have been particularly impactful to me personally because I’ve had some financial struggles as I changed careers over the past five years. I went from a Director of Finance position; making a salary matching my title, to a new author’s salary; and let’s just say you don’t get into Christian literature or speaking for the money! It has to be a calling, as it should be! Because of this calling, I just couldn’t give up when the vision didn’t match the provision! I just prayed more!
In my prayers for my finances God has seen fit to do some pretty crazy things (Like in the Provision Devo and CRAZY Provision FREE Download Post) to answer my prayers! To help with my income God chose to connect me with Helena Cho and a few others I will be introducing over the next few months.
While attending the 2015 International Christian Retail Show in Orlando, Florida for our books; when Todd and I were leaving the show on the last day, a woman came over and placed a wrap-around bracelet on my wrist. It had my grandmother’s favorite verse on it, Philippians 4:13 “I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength”. This woman asked if we could wait as she felt we needed to meet the founder of GOODWORK(S) Jewelry, Helena Cho. As soon as we were introduced, God immediately connected Helena and I. We spent hours talking and praying in a hotel lobby later that night getting to know each other and we’ve continued to stay in contact. When she presented me with the opportunity to sell her scripture covered jewelry I knew immediately that this was a God connection, and an answer to my prayers in a most unusual way! God used the scripture from Monday’s devotional Fix These Words in Deuteronomy 11:18 and Deuteronomy 6:6-9 to confirm that I should sell her products.
I love how Helena’s products have scripture all over them! If you know me, you know that I LOVE jewelry and I LOVE scripture! In one way it seems a crazy way for God to provide, but when I think about it, me selling jewelry with scripture on it makes complete sense! I’ve always been big on having scripture out in view. I have a practice of writing out scripture on cue cards or pretty pieces of paper to help me fix His Words in my thoughts and not just my own. If I leave my thoughts to my natural patterns of thinking it can be detrimental. I love having tactful artwork around my home that has scripture on it too.
Helena is the daughter of Korean pastors. She too is inspired by scripture! Helena told me there were two scripture passages that inspired her business GOODWORK(S). The first gave her a vision to make a company using inspirational words:
“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law”
About second Helena said:
“…this verse gave me my company’s name and direction for my company”
“In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.”
I am pleased to partner with Helena and GOODWORK(S). Such an impactful company that provides people with gorgeous jewelry and a way to fix God’s words in your sight! I love how she is committed to helping others with the profit in her company; as Helena says it’s:

About Our Founder
CEO Helena Cho
“Fashion With A Purpose” was the goal for CEO Helena Cho.
Since 2011, her company GOODWORK(S) Make a Difference has pledged 25% of its net profits to charitable contributions supporting in-need communities around the world.
Cho always had a vision of being able to create something that could benefit needy communities. Inspired by a charity run’s ability to unite individuals to achieve a common goal, she crafted a bracelet—an uplifting piece gifted as a random act of kindness. Over time, her work grew in popularity, earning strong support and a loyal following. Leveraging previous retail experience and a strong academic background as a dual-major Marketing and Finance graduate at the University of Southern California, Cho established her own business intent on delivering positive, empowering merchandise to the public.
Helena now resides over one of the fastest growing socially conscious fashion/accessories brands in the market, sold across 40 countries and 1,800 boutique stores within the United States. Highlights of the company’s advocacy work include providing home essentials to over 117 former homeless families as part of its “Home Sweeter Home” campaign, working with nationally renowned enrichment program LA’s Best to provide over 1,200 holiday gifts to low income students, and sponsoring an annual “Dream Prom” event for scholastically deserving, underprivileged high school students. “Random acts of kindness really make a difference”, she reflects, “and empower people.”
GOODWORK(S) has been awarded with accolades from a number of organizations including the Angel Award, the Diamond Award (NOLA) and the Global Humanitarian Awards. Today, GOODWORK(S) bracelets can be found in recognized storefronts including Buckle, Von Maur, and Fred Segal. The company has also developed positive media exposure across various mediums, including features on the pages of Elle, InTouch Weekly, and Cosmopolitan Magazine, among other international publications. Helena is passionate about inspiring people to help improve their communities and encouraging the act of charity in everyday decisions.
