Check it out! Our new site/ store is up!

We are attempting some home businesses in an attempt to make it possible for Victor to stop his job and spend more time on ministry and family.
My part in that has been making and selling candles. So far, we've done pretty well, but not quite as much as we need. So... I designed a website and etsy shop to be able to sell to a broader audience. Would you be able to help me out a little? Go take a look at my site, store and blog, and then come back here and leave a comment with anything you see that I could improve on. If you do that, I'll send you a coupon code for 10% off your entire order in my etsy shop.

Also, if you're able to help me get the word out, I'd really appreciate that. The more traffic the better the chance of realizing our dream!

Thanks for the help,
~Bethany~

P.S.
I'll try to post a family update soon!

Hi Bethany!
I hope y'all are doing well. Did you get the newsletter? We think of and pray for y'all often.

So I looked at your site, store and blog and they look great! I pray God will bless your business endeavors. I will get the word out as much as I can!

And I'll be looking forward the family update...=)

God bless you!

May I make a humble suggestion? Stock your store with more ready-made choices. Have candles that the customer can just click buy and be done without having to design it themselves. Some people will like to put together their custom candle, but I think many just like to have that taken care of for them. Also, fill up the shop. I've found that more people buy when the shop is full and updated regularly. I hope you do well!
