Ashro Woman: DaVesa B.

Meet Ashro Woman of the Week, DaVesa B. from Granite City, IL

Faith-filled and empowered, DaVesa Brown is a minister’s wife, mother and jewelry entrepreneur who also works at a non-profit community outreach organization.

When we asked her what makes her happy, she said it is encouraging others. As a woman of faith, DaVesa allows the Holy Spirit to teach her daily. “One of my biggest struggles was unforgiveness, but now it is my latest triumph!”

DaVesa gives all credit to her grandmother who always taught her to love God and love people. Following her grandmother’s example, DaVesa teaches her children the importance of including God in everything, reading the Bible and applying it to their everyday life. 

Fashion is also a passion for DaVesa. What she loves most about it is the varieties of styles and the ability to enhance or complement the beauty you already have. DaVesa recalls her first time receiving an Ashro catalog, she says “I was instantly captivated by the beauty-full (my way of expressing beautiful) styles shown.” 

She usually dresses up for church every Sunday, date nights and her jewelry vendor events. DaVesa’s best advice?  “Keep God first, and everything else will fall into place.”
