I am bRE

11 years ago, I heard a speaker sharing on sex slavery. Having an abolitionist mind and realizing that slavery wasn’t abolished but in fact larger than it has ever been, I decided I needed to do something! I was at that time a director of a woman’s group and lead events in our community, so when I heard the speaker say that some rescued women were making products to sell for a start in a new life my heart leapt knowing that I amongst many other women, know how to shop! I quickly got connected and purchased products to sell at my next women’s event. At that event, I sold out all the product I had purchased and knew this...

Continuing the Adventure!

We have now been working on beauty REnewed and bRE products for over a year. We are about to launch our website and start our monthly pop-up shops. I can't wait! We have been designing and hand picking each and every product and it's packaging. It's been more challenging than I was expecting, but I'm learning more than I ever imagined I would.

These are a few of my favorite things- by Tami

As I think about this statement, there are millions of things that come to my mind. I love life and love to stay busy filling each day with as much as possible. You only live once, right? Growing up on a farm, I acquired a love for animals, gardening, home cooked meals, nature and wide open spaces. I also love people, community, and building relationships. All of these things are 'loves' for me and I feel truly blessed to be able to go through my adult life experiencing these things daily. I have found that they take work and have to be a priority in order to fully enjoy them.  Take gardening, nothing gives me more joy then going out and seeing...
