BATON ROUGE – Christmas may be five months away but it can a little early recently for a group of women at Florida Boulevard Baptist Church.
Making snowmen filled with white chocolate pretzel treats and wreaths and hearing a devotional about turning tragedy into inspiration were among the highlights for the Christmas in July event at the church. During the event, Ginny Traylor shared the story of her daughter, Tracy, a freshman at Baylor University majoring in interior design. Left paralyzed from the neck down following a car accident, Tracy Traylor refused to give up on her dream.
Currently, she designs jewelry based on scripture and her mother has become her hands to make a line of Christian jewelry called PRIMS. The jewelry is made of baked clay beads and semiprecious stones fashioned in a primitive look.
Next year, the event will feature a “Ladies Tea” with all the trappings of an “old-fashioned” tea time. The women will enjoy five varieties of tea and breads and scones, tea sandwiches, finger food and desserts during the occasion.
