My name is Phuong. I am 44 years old and I live in the small town just outside of Charlotte, NC. I am married and have 3 children: Jared 15, Kyle 13 and Megan 11 years old.
Chopstix and Love was something I started many years ago as a t-shirt business. It was going to be a way for me to earn extra money and use my creative side, but nothing ever happened with it. Fast forward 7 years later, as I was scrolling through Netflix I came across Finding Home. The Lord spoke to me and said to watch it. I did. It completely rocked my world. The horrifying evil that these girls and millions of others go through everyday shook my soul. I couldn't get them out of my heart and mind. So I ask the Lord, "What can do about it?" Chopstix and Love was reborn. I got some jewelry tools and pieces and started practicing and creating and everything just started to work its way into place. I started slowly raising awareness about my mission for Rapha House. I've only been doing this since last November (2016).
I'm not going to stop.....I've had orders for my jewelry slowly coming in. I started my etsy shop too. Hand Stamped with Purpose by ChopstixandLove. A lot of my pieces are repurposed from old or broken pieces, some are just new ones, but all of them can be customized. My hope is that more people will become aware of sex trafficking/ modern day slavery and then go beyond awareness to action. My goals for Rapha House change as the Lord speaks to me. So my next one is to have a showing of Finding Home and then sell my jewelry after. I am building a fund from my sales for Rapha House. God bless you all!
