Work With What We Already Have!
Angel Bradshaw has it figured it out and it wasn’t easy. She’s turned her hardships into motivation. She’s taken life’s turns and choose the road of positivity. Now the mother of three, Angel’s company Covered By Angel in Sumter, SC, has multiple meanings. It’s a reminder of God’s love for us, that we are not forgotten and that to everything there’s a distinct purpose. With her business selling headwraps, Angels encourages us to take life how it comes and work with what we already have. Be you, Be Different and meet the queen, Angel.
What inspired you to start your business and why?: Covered was birthed from my love of all things different, unique and of meaning. Not just an accessory but a statement! Our goal is to help you enhance what is already there. It’s my hope that Covered by Angel serves as a reminder that you will always be protected by His love. May you always find shelter and protection as you travel along life’s journey.
What does your company stand for?: Covered comes from Psalms 914:4 which simply reminds us that "He will cover you with his feathers. He will shelter you with his wings. His faithful promises are your armor and protection." This scripture is what helped me through some of the times in my life where I didn't know how I got through them. Those moments, such as becoming a mother at the age of 17 (my son is now 21), losing my father on my 21st birthday, suffering from three ectopic pregnancies, going through three years of fertility treatments and giving birth to two beautiful babies (my twins are now 5). And 'by Angel' comes from my first name.
How do you create the life you want?: To create the life you want, you must simply live. All our lives have already been planned in the way that God wanted to be, so it may not be the life that we thought we wanted but it's definitely the life that's wanted for us. Create purposeful moments by living through and growing through the moments that you live.
Where do you find inspiration?: I find my inspiration in my children and in my grandson. I also find it from women that wear my wraps and have expressed to me how much they love them.
How has your business made you a better person?: My business reminds me daily that I am a Queen. My wraps also serve as a crown, not only to me but to others. Covered also comes with a story and I'm able to share this story with so many people through my wraps.
What makes you HUMAN?: Making Mistake makes me human. However, learning from them makes aware that I am HUMAN.
