Eternal LIFE Candles got started out of pain, passion, and purpose. Our owner, Ebony Grady, was suddenly diagnosed with a brain disease and fibromyalgia out of nowhere! As a registered nurse, it was extremely difficult to transition from caregiver to now the one requiring care. She has suffered from chronic pain and fatigue everyday for almost 3 years.
One night, in an attempt to relieve pain, she took a candlelit bath. It was during that bath that she had a supernatural encounter with God. Ebony wanted to share that same gift of intimacy with our Heavenly Father through candles. God gave her all the details – from the name of the candles, which scriptures to use, down to the scents and colors. Ultimately we became a healing ministry through candles to draw others closer to God.
After facing many trials and tribulations Ebony realized that it was only GOD who gave her strength. As a result, she decided to dedicate her business to Him! Instead of walking in fear, she launched her business on June 5, 2020 in an attempt bring light to a world full of darkness.
We pray that our candles bring light, hope, love, and joy to all that encounter!
"Concerning this thing I pleaded with the Lord three times that it might depart from me. And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in needs, in persecutions, in distresses, for Christ’s sake. For when I am weak, then I am strong."
II Corinthians 12:8-10 NKJV
As a small token of our appreciation for all God has done for us, we regularly contribute to the support of different ministries including the Purpose In The Pain Ministry - a women's healing support ministry purposed to spread Hope, Encouragement, and Love, to women as they embark on a journey towards overcoming pain barriers.
Eternal LIFE Candles is honored to be able to give back to the community. Everything we have has come from God Himself. We started our business in a laundry room with one candle starter kit, but where there is vision, God gives provision. We were able to donate our first fruits to ministry and the support and response from the community has been a blessing! We are honored that He would use us to continue to serve others!
