We believe that faithfulness doesn't just happen. It's something that must be quietly cultivated day by day. If you long for a deep and flourishing relationship with the Lord, you have to push the pause button on all the crazy and make room for the things that matter most.
Everything here at Muscadine Press has been specifically designed and carefully crafted to help you do just that. From journals to make the most of your quiet time to art prints that bring Scripture to mind throughout the day, each item in the shop is intended to help you slow down and practice faithfulness day in and day out.
It's our great honor to walk alongside you and serve you in this way. We can't wait to see the great things that the Lord will do in us and through us as we cultivate faithfulness together.
We're so glad you asked! Muscadines are a distinctly Southern variety of grape. They're happy to grow on their own in the wild, but they also flourish in cultivated vineyards. With a sweet flavor and tough skin, muscadines love the sun and produce more grapes than anyone knows what to do with.
Our theme verse is John 15:5: "I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing." As believers, we're branches of that vine, offshoots from the main source of life, and we're called to bear fruit. Lots of it. Just like muscadines.
Muscadine Press is a Christian ministry devoted to equipping and empowering the people of God to cultivate a faithful life. We launched in 2015 as a branch of founder Leslie Ann Jones' writing and teaching ministry. Leslie Ann had been designing custom stationery on the side for quite some time and really enjoyed the work, but she felt the Lord leading her in a new direction: one that combined her love for pretty paper with her passion for the Word of God.
So she closed up her stationery shop and set out to design a line of faith-based products designed to help people draw near to the Lord. She started with the Dwell Journal, moved on to art prints, and eventually added a line of stationery. In 2017, she began to feel the Lord leading her to yet another transition: a new name for the LAJ Shop. After months of hard work and navigating all the little details that go into such a big change, we re-launched as Muscadine Press in 2018.
I’m so glad you’re here. I’m Leslie Ann—a wife, mama, writer, and designer living in a small Mississippi town doing my best to live a faithful life. Sometimes it’s a little crazier and a lot harder than I ever imagined it would be.
I needed something to keep my heart's devotion and mind's attention focused on the Lord, even in the middle of my super busy days. That, in short, is why I founded Muscadine Press. Of course that's the short version. Want the rest of the story?Read More
