Core Values

  1. Connect with the creator. Whether our resources refer to the creator as a potter or Mother Nature, we believe we are each divinely created by God. In addition, He has a unique purpose for us that includes knowing Him personally.
  2.  Be creative. Everything that we do and create is a reflection of the creator Himself. Likewise, we strive to create fun and unique resources that grow us spiritually, socially, and academically.
  3. Be fruitful. Physical, spiritual, social, and academic growth should produce love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, and self-control. These qualities are what the Bible refers to as the fruit of the Spirit. Just as the potter created Little Pot to be a fruit pot, we must be fruitful vessels. Therefore, we strive to demonstrate the fruit of the Spirit.
hi, I'm Dawn

As a mom, educator, and school principal, I created teaching resources and children’s books about clay vessels discovering their purpose. Each pot has a unique relationship to the potter. In addition, their stories represent the stories we sprout alongside our creator. Just as Little Pot grows strawberries, we can produce the fruit of the Spirit. Likewise, a teapot serves. As an oil lamp gives light, we can shine. Consequently, these characters and I help others grow spiritually, socially, and academically. Each area leads to serving, shining, and bearing fruit for the potter.
