Welcome to the NEW Alexandria Hinders



HAPPY MAY 6TH. Today is the day I turn 29, and it’s the day I officially launch the brand new home for Alexandria Hinders . com ๐Ÿ’ƒ

I have been wanting a new home that really just screams ME for a while now, and it’s finally here. Thanks to the amazing Elizabeth McCray and her incredibly beautiful ShowIt templates, and the insanely talented, word-wizard Jess Jordana IT’S FINALLY HERE.

If you know me in real life, you know that I have the God-given talent of being a willing-to-tryer. This has brought me more success than I could have ever imagined, but it hasnโ€™t come easy for me. I’ve given a bunch of my best yeses that have lead me to places I would have never dreamed (both really good and really hard). Giving my best yes has seen me through:

  1. Becoming a thriving wedding photographer, to find out soon enough that my โ€œdream careerโ€ had only pieces of what I wanted my life to look like in the future – so I shifted.
  2. Building an essential oils business from the ground up, uncovering how my talents, skills, and passion for women and business finally fit together, but also knowing I wanted to keep innovating + maintain my creativity, so I created a business to help make other oilers’ lives easier (even in the midst of having HARDLY any time).
  3. Stepping into the calling of foster care, discovering GREAT LOVE for the little boy who made me a mama, having my heart broken by him leaving, stepping back into that calling with love and determination to end up falling madly in love with two spunky twin toddlers.
  4. Reaching out to God to be my light when it feels like I am surrounded by darkness.

But here I am. Embracing all of these contradictions and owning them.

All of this is why I needed a new home. A place that fit ALL of these things that I’ve been willing to give my yes to. A space to share my passions. To give other women, like you, an honest dose of the feels. Especially as you navigate life, faith, entrepreneurship and family too. A space that I hope helps you find freedom that was made for you.

My mission is to speak freedom into your life, so you can fully flourish in the abundant life God has for you.

Welcome to my new internet home. Grab a beverage. Stay a while. Check out the main site. (If you’re an entrepreneur, check out this page!) Read some of the most recent blog posts. I’m really grateful you’re here.
