We are SO inspired by John Wooden's 7-point creed and the wise words he lived by. He was a hall of fame coach at UCLA who died in June of 2010 at the age of 99.
Up until his death, John Wooden kept a folded-up index card in his wallet. On it was a handwritten 7-point creed that his father had given him as a graduation gift from elementary school. Many say the character and achievements of “Coach Wooden” can be traced back to that piece of paper. We love it and know you will to... even if you aren’t a basketball fan!

We love John Wooden's 7-point creed and try to incorporate it into our daily lives as much as possible. It's so important to set out your intentions and remind yourself of them often. We've spent a lot of time figuring out what means the most to us and these are the values that we stick to in our everyday lives:
We believe it's the little things that mean the most, that kindness really does matter, you should always be yourself, do what you love and try to make the world a better place!
We live these values by taking time for things like a retreat on a quiet farm in Asheville, NC, building blessing bags for people in our community, wearing what makes us happy, following our passions and partnering with people who are making a difference in the world!
Do you have a personal creed that you live by? We'd love to hear it!
Seek opportunities to show you care. The smallest gesture of ten makes the biggest difference.
