Who We Are...

It’s with a grateful heart that I welcome you to frontporchmarketplace.com. Michael and I opened The Front Porch Marketplace, LLC in March of 2015 and it holds a special place in our hearts. This entire business idea was born by following the voice of our God. It was first a dream of mine that Michael was not even willing to talk about. Knowing that God was leading me to open a retail location, I continued in prayer, " God, you have shown me this vision and have spoken so clearly to me. Just as you have shown me, Lord show him." Continued prayer for several weeks created reality for what was once a dream that I doubted would ever come to life. Now, together we are living our dream.

In 2015, we signed the lease on our Brick & Mortar shop located in Historic Downtown Albertville, AL. In this store, I am developing and sharpening my design style and skills, I am growing as a business owner, and I am gaining a much needed confidence in The Front Porch Marketplace and myself.

Of course, I am full time at The Front Porch Marketplace but Michael has continued full time employment outside of our little dream for now. We are focused on growing our business to a point that Michael can join me full time at the store. There are days we just wish that we were ready for that leap of faith for Michael to leave the corporate world but know that in God's timing, HE will make it clear.

 

For now, we are going to continue raising our quickly growing two girls, pay off our home and grow our knowledge of entrepreneurship. The Front Porch Marketplace has shown us so many facets of life that we otherwise would not have seen. We are so blessed to have the opportunity to serve our community as a small business. Many of our customers are now life long friends and we look forward to building many more relationships while living our dream as owners of The Front Porch. What an amazing season this has been!

 

Thank you for taking the time out of your day to visit The Front Porch Marketplace. We love hosting you, and hope you might even come on in for a visit soon! Please don’t hesitate to reach out to us if you have any questions or comments by emailing jenifer@thefrontporchmarketplace.com.

 

Bless your home,
