For over a year, Missy Robertson and her friend, Kelly Block, thought about starting their own jewelry line inspired by the outdoors.
One day, Block attended a bible study led by Robertson's mother-in-law, Miss Kay, which was for women who are in recovery.
In a segment with The 700 Club, Block said the women there would always ask if anyone in the group knew of employment opportunities. They would do anything.
It was then that Robertson and Block realized they could turn their new business, Lamanin by Missy Robertson, into a ministry for these women in need.
"We wanted to give women in our community a new purpose,"Robertson tells The 700 Club. "And these women come from all walks of life. The ones who just cannot find a job because they've been incarcerated, they could be coming out of homelessness. We also have some who were rescued out of the sex trafficking industry right here in our town."
Robertson admits that she never grew up around drugs, alcohol, or negligent parents, so she can't imagine what these women have gone through in their lives.
She is now helping these women turn their lives around and that moves her so much, she breaks town in tears during her interview.
The video features a few of the Lamanin employees telling their emotional stories.
"These people love me. I am somebody, I am worthy of doing this," said Brandy, who has previously been involved with drugs and prostitution.
