Lydia’s Purse International was inspired by a vision borne from counseling women, one to one.  Based on my education as a fashion designer at Kent State University & training as a BIBLICAL COUNSELOR, I created the ministry to empower & encourage women economically & spiritually.  I AM Powered was written for the ministry, as a heart to heart talk with women in a classroom setting, beyond the walls of a counseling session, connecting us, 121 as we walk through life together.

Lydia's Purse International

Lydia’s Purse International was a social enterprise created by Maryann Wohlwend. She partnered her for-profit business with non-profit rescue missions to provide women spiritual discipleship through sewing & design skills training,  giving HOPE  to break the cycle of generational poverty. Sewing Handbags & Sowing Hearts

Lydia’s Purse International hosted classes at The Haven of Rest Homeless Mission’s Harvest Home for Women in Akron, Ohio, USA & in Morogoro, Tanzania, AFRICA.

“I have had the privilege of seeing firsthand the good work that Maryann Wohlwend has accomplished with the people from Haven of Rest Rescue Mission in Akron, OH. I have heard women tell their stories with pride & passion. I have seen their work and creativity, their joyous support of one another, and their souls transformed into a light of hope for all to witness. Maryann’s work has changed women filled with despair, to soar heights they never imagined.” – Janet Rhodes Ross, Owner, Janet Rhodes Brings you Fair Trade
