I"m starting a sort of "Frequently Asked Questions" series so that you can get to know Peripeti Home a little better. One of the most common questions I get is "Where did you get your name". That's a fair question, it's not a word you hear everyday. It actually has a very special meaning to me. Years before candles or a business was even a glint in my eye I was in a Bible Study led by my good friend, Griska. It was the Beth Moore Study on Esther. I love Beth Moore studies for many many reasons and Griska is perhaps the best leader I've ever met!
Like I said, this was years before I had ever made a candle but that word "peripety" and the whole concept behind it, of small moments leading to great change, stuck in my mind.
Of course many professionals advised me not to choose a name no one is familiar with. It is better for my online search presence for my name to have candle or soy or home fragrance in my company's name. But sometimes you just know things, and I knew that I had to use the name "Peripeti" (I did switch to the i because the domain was taken with a 'y' and I do like the way the 'i' looks). I don't know if my website would be getting more "hits" if I had taken their advice but the story and meaning behind something is more important to me than those numbers and I am glad to be sharing it with you! And I believe even more now than when I started that each of us is unique and has a purpose here on Earth, that each day is a blessing, and that lives are changed, even saved, by the 'small things' we do and say every day! Thanks for asking!
