THE NAME:

So what do olives and stones have to do with anything you're asking. Well, let me tell you! Olive & Stone is near and dear to my heart. During the start-up, I went back and forth on what to call this dream company of mine. One morning I was studying the Gospels and Jesus laid it all out for me and gifted me with the name Olive & Stone. I know that God laid all this out to me in His perfect timing and that He has great big plans for this company! I am so glad you are considering coming along for the ride!

THE OLIVE:

Olives have such a huge significance in the bible with over 200 mentions. A few examples - The Mount of Olives where Jesus came fully human to be with us, where he cried and prayed in the Garden of Gethsemane located at the foot of Mount of Olives before He was betrayed, and then where He ascended into heaven promising His return. The olive branch the dove brought to Noah to signify life and bringing peace to Noah that he did the right thing in listening to Him, “Genesis 8:10-11 10 He waited seven more days and again sent out the dove from the ark. 11 When the dove returned to him in the evening, there in its beak was a freshly plucked olive leaf! Then Noah knew that the water had receded from the earth.” There is so much symbolism throughout the bible that I wanted it incorporated into my company as well. Olive oil in this time was very coveted and a delicacy. It would even be used in perfumes and anointing oils like the one mentioned below.

THE STONE:

Stones also are talked about, represented, and symbolized frequently throughout the bible. A few to mention - In Matthew, Mary dumped an alabaster stone jar full of expensive perfume onto Jesus in worship to him. This oil was the equivalent of a person's entire annual salary in that time, talk about sacrifice. This stone jar represents a vessel as we are called to be a vessel in representing Jesus in our everyday life. I found that Solomon (which is my 2nd child's middle name) used alabaster stone in building the temple in 1 Chronicles 29. David said, “my son Solomon, the one whom God has chosen, is young and inexperienced (can I get a hey-o when I was starting this company 🙋🏻‍♀️) the task is great because the structure is not for man but for God…” Jesus also calls us to build our house on a solid rock/stone foundation and not of sand so that it is sturdy and will not fall by the crashing waves. When Jesus rose from the dead he rolled away a stone. Not to mention, and really the icing on the cake, Mount of Olives is made out of the same chalky stone the alabaster stone resembles.
