Here at SOCO & COMPANY, our faith is as rooted as a great White Oak, and our mission is to tell about His grace and His goodness. Our love of friendship is just as abundant. Hannah & Joni Marie have been best friends for 20 years and SOCO & COMPANY is a culmination of childhood dream. We were created after our angel Nana gained her wings in 2016, and the Lord placed it on Hannah’s heart to find a way to honor her. Nana was an incredibly passionate and caring woman, with phenomenal interior designing talent, which also translated to an impeccable eye for textiles, along with her best friend Susan.
Although Nana is incredibly missed, Psalm 91:11 says, “For He will command his angels concerning you, to guard you in all your ways.”
Hannah was living on the family farm, affectionally called the Red and Blackberry Hill, when her mama, Julie, and Joni Marie’s mama, Jackie, met. God works in beautiful ways like that; forming friendships that will last a lifetime and be an incredible blessing. The peaceful sky of the country, paired with Nana’s immense love for fashion, planted a seed in both Hannah and Joni Marie’s heart from a young age. Our grassroots approach mirrors that of the red Georgia clay upon which we both learned to walk, run, and chase our wildest dreams. We have an affinity for southern architecture, the roaming, colorful hollers and hills, and find inspiration from the textures of gravel, barns, sunflowers, and hydrangeas. In addition to our classic approach to fashion, with our twists, we want to be a congenial light for people.
Matthew 5:16 says, “let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.” We certainly don’t want the attention to be on us. We wholeheartedly want the attention to go to Him. We also want to emphasize that appearances and fashions will fade, but the Lord, Our God, is forever. We care deeply about the person inside of our clothing, and we want to empower them to passionately share the love of Christ through their life’s purpose. Proverbs 11:27 tells us that anyone can find the dirt in someone, but you have the chance to see the gold. Today, tomorrow, and forever, we choose to glorify Jesus and to always see the gold in others.
May everything we do, be #ForGodsGlory.
