Story of Shocking Transformation!

Meet Claudine...our Motherhood is Beautiful leader in Ocean View and Seamstress

Claudine's Story: Whenever Claudine is asked to share her story, she talks about how she fell pregnant at 14 years old and dropped out of school. Overwhelmed with the challenges of life, she became addicted to drugs (tik..crystal meth) and no longer wanted to live.

Ignoring her young children as she was lying on her bed, not moving for days, she told God, “If you are me!” He reached out to her with hope and used her tiny speck of faith to move mountains. She got off of drugs cold turkey and today she is a different person!

She enthusiastically joined Motherhood is Beautiful in August and learned how to sew beautiful bunting in a flash! She is now on our sales team and is working hard to create eye-catching bunting that anyone would be proud to hang in their home.

When you purchase Hope-tion bunting, you are immediately bringing HOPE for a better life and OPTIONS for transformation to disadvantaged mothers in South Africa!
