My guest for episode #81 is Kat Armstrong. Kat is the creator of Baby Bow Tie and the founder of Polish, a ministry sharing the gospel with women in the workforce. Kat shares her story of creating a company because she couldn't find a green bowtie for her son and how God ordained relationships to spur on the tremendous success of the company. You can now find her products in Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus and a ton of children's boutiques across the country.

Now, most of Kat's time is spent with the ministry she started, Polish. She and her team are committed to sharing the gospel with women in the workforce, and equipping women in the workforce to share the gospel. They currently serve women in the Dallas and Austin areas. But, they are considering serving other areas (North Dallas and Fort Worth coming soon). If you are interested in being a part of the launch team in your area, you'll definitely want to get in touch with Kat.

Kat and I are both pastor wives (which is different than a sister wife), and I loved hearing her talk about how she manages that role while being respectful, encouraging and protective of her husband. No matter what role your husband plays, I think you'll feel encouraged by Kat and how she talks about her marriage.

And lastly, I know I will make a lot of my designer friends shudder when I asked Kat to clearly pronounce Pantone. Kat loves her some Pantone Color of the Year, and I love that about her. But I am going to stick with my primary colors and leave the fancy color talk to my designer friends.
