On Good Friday night April 15, almost 50 people gathered in the backyard of HPN founder Karen Covell’s house, for a beautiful night of worship, prayer, fellowship, and communion with the Lord. After a time of worship, and scripture reading, we all took communion as a group, and were encouraged to receive all that Jesus died and paid for.  Following that, everyone gathered around the hot tub to watch a beautiful and momentous baptism for new Christian and HPN community member. Everyone rejoiced as we witnessed this important step in the life of a new believer, and we also celebrated a new believer coming into the kingdom that night!

For many in the fashion world, similarly to the filmmaking world, there seem to be an endless barrage of the talented and not-so-talented, doing whatever it takes to “make it big”. No dreamer is too small and many vie for “the dream” for those in fashion – to create collections for fashion week, to have a self-named atelier, and to create a global and recognizable brand. For Nancy Vuu, however, this is not the story.

Nancy didn’t even begin her journey into the fashion world until she was already a mother of four children. She was thriving in a corporate job, when God called her to leave the position that had helped keep her family in a place of financial comfort through the economical ups and downs for years. However, when the Lord reminded her of her childhood dream to be a fashion designer, and asked her if she’d go where He was leading, Nancy said YES, and a door to the world of fashion was opened. Since that day, Nancy has gone with the Lord around the world, and from Vogue to the streets of LA, sharing the God-dream, and her talents, to anyone who will listen. She has expanded from Children’s headpieces and gowns to a full collection of royally inspired gowns and pieces, editorial photography, creative direction, and has even entered the film-making world.

In this interview of Hollywood Changemakers Podcast, Nancy shares her journey, her mindset, and her revelation at what it means to say YES to the God-dreams that are placed in the hearts of every person. She has often asked this question: “If everything was taken care of, and you could dream with God, what would you do?”. It’s a question that not many have been asked, and is an even harder one to answer. Come with us as we explore and challenge Christians who feel called to the fashion industry and beyond to DREAM WITH GOD!
