August/September 2018 Inspiration

Ever thought of a manifesto for your family or business? 


The “Magnolia Manifesto” shown below was included in a magazine that Chip and Joanna Gaines publish and I liked it so much I decided to share it with you.  As you may know, they are the couple responsible for the very popular “Fixer Upper” show.

Their public statement got me thinking about my values and the need for all of us to define what we believe as a family and in our workplace. As my business nears our 30th anniversary, I am very aware of how quickly time passes and the importance of living a life well, of setting worthwhile goals, the most important of which is to leave a legacy of love and service.
Chip and Joanna Gaines are quoted as saying in an April 2015 article in,  that their marriage and family is centered around their Christian faith. When I started the business in 1988, I wanted a company name that reflected my ability to help customers with their packaging needs and to make decisions based on the Biblical values I try to live by.  A graphics designer and friend came up with our logo and included the word “Master” to remind me of the need to focus on helping people who need my packaging experience and to honor Jesus Christ, who guides and blesses me daily.




Wishing God's best for you,
