The Prince of Peace

Today we posted on Social Media this gorgeous Psalm, which reads: “Great peace have those who love your law; nothing can make them stumble”. Psalm 119:165 Notice how the Psalmist didn’t say “peace”. He said: “GREAT peace”. This should challenge us greatly in the world and day and age that we live in, that we should have GREAT, IMMENSE peace.

God Doesn’t Miss a Thing

Happy Friday, and Greetings! Our heart here at Amy's Country Candles is to follow after God's own heart, just like David did in the book of Psalms. Back in David's time, David was THE person everyone looked up to.

We could be feeling overwhelmed and stressed out...

Amy Mike burning her candle at both ends, and loving it.

Amy Mike's love for mixing things, whether it is hair care products or triple-scented candle wax, has made her one of Thibodaux's most notable business leaders. As a young stylist 15 years ago, Mike opened Amy's Beauty Salon in her hometown. In 1999, she decided to hang up her curling iron, instead opting to try her hand at candle-making full-time. That's when Amy's Country Candles got its start. Today, she operates nine outlets across south Louisiana - in Baton Rouge, Covington, Thibodaux and Houma - as well as an Internet store (www.amyscountrycandles.com) and a candle-making factory in Thibodaux. Add to that, the Ritz Carlton in New Orleans exclusively uses and sells her "Gardenia" scene in its hotel. Ironically, Mike initially...
