The Best Advice My Father Gave Me

Dear King's Daughters,

On July 4, 1978, I started a fashion business with my father, Jerry Johansen. He saw potential in a belt I designed and encouraged me to take it to retail stores all over Texas. When I came home from the road trip with $2,000 of orders, he immediately wrote a business plan for our budding company.

My father became the CEO of Ginnie Johansen Designs and over the next 12 years, led our business to distribute in 3,000 stores with a banner year of $20 million of sales. 

In this next season of entrepreneurship, my father has continued to advise Sarah and me with our King's Daughters A-Z Regal Lifestyle Collection. His timeless business principles and spiritual encouragement are vital to us! One of the greatest gifts he has given us is his hand-written message below. It has become a cornerstone for the way we depend on God as the Trinity for every aspect of King's Daughters, as well as our lives:

King's Daughter, we pray that in every endeavor, whether business, philanthropic, family, friends, or life passions, you see God's vision, seek Jesus' guidance, and receive the Holy Spirit's courage. God bless you!

We hope you are blessed meeting Jerry Johansen. It is my delight to honor my father this Father's Day. We hope you find a creative way to honor yours this weekend!

Southeast Tour Recap!

In March, we asked the Lord what was on His heart for King’s Daughters in Spring 2017. He said, “Eight Messages in Eight Cities.” God faithfully opened doors throughout the Southeast for Art Shows and Regal Celebrations in EIGHT cities: Nashville, Huntsville, Charlotte, Winston Salem, Chattanooga, Dalton, Birmingham, Atlanta, and Jackson.

We were able to celebrate women and girls throughout the Southeast as King's daughters with our Scripture inspired art, books, music, and gifts! We saw hearts encouraged, and regal identities refreshed, and new art discovered!

What a delightful two weeks on the road! Thank you to every hostess, attendee, and new friend we enjoyed along the way.

A-Z Tips for Mother Daughter Relationships

Dear King's Daughters,

As a mother-daughter team who has worked together for 7 years...and had a wonderful relationship for 29, we are excited to share A-Z Regal Tips for Mother-Daughter Relationships! 

But more importantly than our tips, God gives us His Word. He perfectly defines the kind of love that mothers and daughters need in 1 Corinthians 13:4-8: "Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful. It does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends." 

Happy Mother's Day!!

Ginnie & Sarah
