What makes OnePurpleDeer.com (OPD) Different?

The Holy Spirit woven throughout every aspect of the business.

A Letter From Our CEO to you:

I began doing websites out of necessity. In the early 90’s I started a women’s and youth ministry. I found myself needing major print, web, and design services as I was hosting events, doing a newsletter, and needing a website. I sought out graphic and website designers that could help me, but they were terribly expensive. And the designers that I did find within my budget, well, frankly I didn’t want to have their designs represent my ministry.
Not having a choice, I designed a free website on angelfire.com. Years went by and I kept upgrading to other free website hosts and found that either the design templates looked too cookie cutter, they were limiting, or worse they had ads. In 2000 I launched my first domain with no design or web develop know how or experience. Needless to say, it was very basic and had a lot of glitches.
But God in His mercy’s enabled my skills to grow by leaps and bounds. Through lots of study and the power of the Holy Spirit I was able to increase my skills to the degree that I started out doing special requests for friends who had ministries and non-profits that grew to doing work for friends of friends. Eventually, I came up with a great idea to start a business. But the Holy Spirit kept reminding me of my early days and that there were others in the same boat.
After wrestling with the calling and a tugging from the Holy Spirit, I submitted to the Holy Spirit’s prompting and step out on faith starting OnePurpleDeer.com in 2013. The fear of having a business that was funded by “set your own pricing” was truly scary. The uncertainty of how it would be able to meet my financial obligations and the worry of being taken advantage of by clients was almost overwhelming. Adding to that fear and uncertainty my husband lost his job 8 days after the launch of the new “set your own price” pricing system.
The journey to this unique pricing system made me realize the importance of recognizing that FAITH comes from believing not seeing, that even in business, God is still God and is creator and controller of all. I finally accepted that if God has truly called me to have a business based on this unique way of pricing, I must believe that He will take care of my responsibilities and the client’s accountability.
It is my prayer and hope that OnePurpleDeer.com can be a blessing to you as God has been a blessing to me and as a result, you can be a blessing to others through whatever gifts, skills, and talents that the Holy Spirit has blessed you with.

May God provide the increase.

Yours In Christ Jesus
