How I Accidently Found the perfect Service/Ministry Bag



{All links will take you to my facebook business page or my Thirty-One business page. I do earn money from my business.  If you already have a Thirty-One representative feel free to reach out to her.  I'm sharing because from looking in the catalog I never would haveseenw this as a ministry bag}

A couple of months ago I joined Thirty-One Gifts as a consultant.  Each month I have earned free products or there have been great sales and I started getting a gift for each of our kids/grandkids.  We have six kids, five that are older and 17 grandkids.  So, this is going to take awhile as I get a product or two each month.  Since we do not celebrate holidays this isn't an issue because it's fun to gift to them when they least expect it.

Last month I ordered two of our girls a Rubie mini.  I posted pictures on my Facebook business page and a sister from a congregation reached out and asked: "Will that fit a tablet?"  I wasn't sure so I tried.  It wouldn't fit our 8" kindles with the covers on but they would fit my seven in Samsung with its thick protective cover with no issues.

Today my husband says, "oh by the way your Thirty-One came yesterday".  So my son and I decided to do an unboxing.  Needless to say, that didn't go too well as he is 9 and didn't get the concept of being professional.  Once he pulled out the bag I ordered for our daughter, Shannon, however, I was like wow! That is the perfect ministry bag!  (Shannon is not a Jehovah's Witness but this is the bag she picked and had she not picked it I would have never known from just seeing in the catalog how great this would be!)




See that zipper pocket?  That fits our Bible!
And it zips closed with no issue.  It even fits with my Bible cover on it.

In the pocket above you see the ministry material holder that my husband and I use.  It does go in sideways and slide down in but I would carry it up like that for easy access. (unless it was raining of course)

The same type of slip pocket on the back of the bag holds a tablet (8"kindle used for photos below)  It can be upright for easy access or sideways down in for better protection.

It also holds an iPad upright on the outside back/front pocket or slipped down on the inside of the bag for protection.
Left unzipped a bit to show that it fits and will zip in.  You also have a zipper inside pocket to hold a small wallet and two slide open pockets for pens, chapstick a lipstick etc.  This bag certainly is versatile that is for sure!

Now to order me one.  Not sure if I will personalize it like I did our daughters or not but there are so many options for personalization.  That is a small extra cost.   The bag comes in seven different patterns/fabrics at this time. My main purse is in this same Two-Tone Weave and I love it.

This might not be your idea of a perfect ministry bag but it certainly is mine.  I can be hands-free to use my Bible at the door and my literature/table it is handy if needed and I can just keep it on while getting in and out of the vehicle.

You can check the bag out here:  Organizing Shoulder Bag

Here are some examples of fonts/personalizations you can use.  There are far too many to show every combination here.



It will take me at least a week to decide what pattern I want and if I want it embroidered or an Icon added or both.  And then there are the font choices!

I'm reachable on FB if you want me to work up some choices for you.  That is the most enjoyable part of my job!  Well besides meeting so many new wonderful people.
