Change is Inevitable

Change is inevitable and as you can see there are some changes with the new website.  The new logo is re-focusing on the name, “It’s My Very Own.”  While many of you are more familiar with the name “Bags of Love” that actually was never the official name.  Bags of Love are what we make and distribute.  Barbara emphasized to me that she was impressed by God to name this ministry, It’s My Very Own.  (Influenced by the story of the child that pulled the toothbrush out of his bag and said, “Is this my very own? I don’t have to share it with anyone?”)  Over the next weeks and months you will find on this website more resources with the new logo.  I do not expect everyone to change all at once or throw anything away that you currently are using with the former logo.  I just hope that in time as you run out of supplies you will begin using the new logo.

Please contact me if you currently have an active chapter and do not see it listed on this website.  Somehow in the transition some of the chapters were not included.

  1. I listened this am on 3ABN about this beautiful ministry. I had lunch with my friend and she feels excited about this like myself. I’m going to present this to the ladies that have been coming to my home for Bible study and I’ll use the presentation that was on 3ABN today (i recorded it today) So exciting!!! But like you Barbara I have been praying for a ministry, something I can do for God. I’m going to be praying that God will lead me in the direction of adopting this as a ministry I can become involved with. Thank you both for sharing this and for the possibility of getting involved.
    When I met with my friend today she told me of something she was sewing just a day ago and saying to herself, I enjoy sewing and working with material, Amazing?? She told me “I in” so I will stay in touch. Oh I looked online about chapters in my area. I put a call into the contact that is in Riverside county but the address was Blythe. I’m in Riverside/Temecula area. God bless

  2. Susan, I mailed the registration for Louisville First SDA church to begin a local chapter, but I haven’t received a reply as of this date. I would really like to get a chapter started, but I believe I need to hear from you first.
    I’m sure with the holidays, life has been busy.
    Thank you,

  3. Hello Susan,
    I am currently running the IMVO chapter in Barre, VT.
    I need to update the contact information on your IMVO website.
    Our chapter was started by Lydia Bilberry, but she and her pastor husband have long since been called to pastor out west. I have tried emailing you at, but my emails are not going through to you. Appreciate your assistance.
    Best Regards and blessings,
    Susan Lancey
