We have been in the business of creating high quality, affordable products with messages that we hoped would inspire conversations about things that mattered. As much as we love the product side of the business, it just all became too much. We grew so fast and because of that, our families suffered from the stress of trying to keep our heads above water. So we decided enough is enough. Our families must be our first ministry. We can’t continue to give our bests at work every day and give our families what is left. So… we are retiring the physical product side of the business for now. We are not necessarily saying goodbye to physical product forever, but for this season of life it is just too much.
I (Megan Smalley) am very pregnant with my two little miracle boys. We spent 3.5 years praying that God would give us a baby and he blessed us with twins. As we enter this new season of life, I don’t want to miss one thing. I want to be present for every moment and not allow the stress of work to take away from family.
Koral Dean (my right hand woman) just had her second baby in March, a boy named Wake. She also has the cutest, sassiest and smartest little 2.5 year old girl, Maison. So she is in the middle of trying to balance two kids, plus work and doesn’t want to miss this season either.
So, we are on a mission to do life and work well. What does that mean for S&G? We are scaling back our overhead, moving all existing physical product, closing down the retail store except for special events and focusing on what matters most: the ministry side of this business. We want to run a more automated business that frees us up to love on our families more and also pour into others.
We are very excited about what the future holds for S&G! Getting back to the root of what we love about this place and being able to use our gifts for His glory is so exciting to us. We hope you will join us on this new, but crazy ride! More details to come.
