amanda vibella blog“The women at Vi Bella are like my family. They provide support whenever I need it.”


Amanda is a 30 year old single mom to three young kids ages 7 to 12. She has been through divorce, dealt with her own personal health struggles and the health of her kids, two of whom have autism. Through it all, Amanda has faithfully shown up to work at Vi Bella for the last 3 years as an invaluable member of the production team in our Iowa office.

In our humble opinion? She’s the best paper and plastic bead roller!

“I love the flexibility this job offers me as a single mom.”

Vi Bella has provided Amanda with a stable job to help her provide for her family. But it’s more than just the financial opportunity.  “Vi Bella has given me confidence throughout the years I’ve worked here. It helps make my life beautiful.” The emotional and spiritual support encourages Amanda to press on in the hard times. She knows she will always have people who love and care about her when she walks in the door.

“I love 1 Corinthians 13 because it’s all about love. God loves all of his children unconditionally. The ladies at Vi Bella help remind me of that.”

We asked Amanda who inspires her the most. We were humbled by her answer. “Julie [Hulstein, Vi Bella’s founder]. She encourages me to think through all sides of something before jumping in head first. I look up to her because she’s done so much in her life. She has such a big heart.”

Amanda is a very compassionate woman, with a heart to love on her family and friends. Amanda’s life is changing for the better through her employment at Vi Bella. And it’s safe to say, our lives have been changed for knowing her, too. Her beautiful life story is only just beginning. Leave a comment to encourage her on her journey to seek more beautiful life for herself and others.
